Jessica Harper stars as Suzy Banyon, a young American ballet dancer who arrives at a prestigious European dance academy run by the mysterious Madame Blanc (Joan Bennett) and Miss Tanner (Alida Valli). But when a series of bizarre incidents and horrific crimes turn the school into a waking nightmare of the damned, Suzy must escape the academy's unspeakable secret of supernatural evil.
The early scene where our heroine is transported to the school in a taxi will provide all the evidence that you need to establish the credentials of this as a "horror" film. It goes on and on and on and on... and all that happens is that the camera switches between the 'rabbit in the headlights' stare of our Suzy and the 'terrifyingly spooky' trees outside - too shocking for me; NOT!
The classic 76 minute documentary of Dario Argento's "World of horror" featuring Michele Soavi director of "The church and the sect", Jessica Harper star of Suspiria, Urbano Barberini star of "Demons 1 & 2", Tom Savini make up on "Dawn of the dead" and also Jennifer Connelly, Donald Pleasance, and David Hemmings
