Blood Red Italian Horror: SUSPERIA !!!
Dario Argento’s Susperia with a live performance soundtrack by Eric Schlappi
Eric Schlappi will be presenting a live tribute to Goblin by covering and interpreting their original soundtrack to Suspiria with a full band of acoustic and electric instruments, analogue synthesizers and WITCHES. Tonight re-experience Susperia, the landmark horror fantasy from cult director Dario Argento- dubbed the Italian Hitchcock for his mastery of suspense. Jessica Harper plays a dancer at a German ballet school where witches prowl the corridors. The famous opening 20 minutes of this Snow White fairy tale (by way of Thomas De Quincey’s hallucinatory Confessions of an Opium Eater) are an unforgettable experience, and the whole film is a stunning combination of menacing Grand Guignol atmosphere, dazzling colours, gory violence, lush décor and pounding live remixing of the Goblin soundtrack.
