A candy-colored Italian horror flick + a legendary soundtrack
Forget vampires and werewolves. If you’re looking for art-house supernatural done right, you’ve gotta go the Argento route. In this 1977 cult favorite, a dance school goes awry when a ballerina discovers the institution’s occult past with black magic. A few witchcraft encounters later, Argento’s baroque flourishes make for a nightmarish dreamscape only magnified by the terrifying soundtrack from the progressive rock group, Goblin. Suffice to say, this is not for the squeamish. General admission. Over 18s only.
"One of the most beautiful, dream-like horror films ever conceived, and quite simply the crowning achievement of…Dario Argento."
