Thom Yorke on Writing the Suspiria Soundtrack
Suspiria originally was a 1977 Italian supernatural horror film directed by Dario Argento that has recently been re-booted
It is the story of a young American dancer Susie Bannion who arrives in 1970s Berlin to audition for the world-renowned Helena Markos Dance Co. When she vaults to the role of lead dancer, the woman she replaces breaks down and accuses the company’s female directors of witchcraft. Meanwhile, an inquisitive psychotherapist and a member of the troupe uncover dark and sinister secrets as they probe the depths of the studio’s hidden underground chambers.
