Although I am generally terrified during even the most ridiculous horror films, I found Suspiria laughable because of the overly dramatic music during the suspenseful scenes. I did not even understand the concept of the witches as killers until much later in the film though did not find myself too curious either as I assumed some sort of monster or demon was responsible for the killings following the trend of films we’ve been viewing recently. The plot seemed to follow a similar format to a typical horror film, though the ending left me unsatisfied, thinking ‘that’s it?’ rather than really wondering what would become of the remaining characters.
It did not take long to jump right into the horror with the first gruesome murder scene happening just minutes into the film. However, the lack of plot leading up this made it less scary for me since I had no attachment to the victims yet. Overall, I found the bright colors and sets interesting though the plot was not very engaging for me.
