Cine Insomnia: Suspiria (1977) - Barbara Magnolfi QaA
Actor Barbara Magnolfi (Olga) speaks about her experience working with Dario Argento in the 1977 horror classic, Suspiria. This conversation was recorded prior to a Cine Insomnia midnight screening of the film at Landmark's NuArt Theatre on 2/7/20. The terrifying first chapter of Dario Argento’s “Three Mothers” Trilogy stars Jessica Harper (The Phantom of the Paradise) as Suzy Banyon, a young American ballet dancer who arrives at a prestigious European dance academy run by the mysterious Madame Blanc (Joan Bennett of TV’s “Dark Shadows”) 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. Here, as in his film Deep Red, writer/director Argento gets a pulse-pounding, thrilling assist from Italian prog musicians Goblin.
