Suspiria ★★★★

yeah this really is the creation of the colour red... and maybe colours in general... i haven't seen colour represented and focused on in this way before. the distinctive lighting and the unique production design really does make you feel (as stupid as it sounds) like you're experiencing certain colours for the first time. it's possibly the most artistic horror film i've seen in all aspects, the gore is brilliant and the score is disturbing yet mesmerising, but the only thing stopping this from a higher rating is that it felt a little rushed. the climax definitely could've been drawn out a bit longer, but this makes me excited to watch the remake as it's almost 40 minutes longer. but overall, it's scary, ferociously imaginative and madly original, and there's no denying that you're gonna have wild time watching it.
