Love it, but it's not his best - Deep Red is and maybe Tenebrae which is in some ways, at least conceptually his most daring.
Love its opening in particular - all that rain! - I think the remake can be good but the original film will always stand - it's a singular film in it's look, music, sensual feel. I mean it's 40 years old and still holds up....
Oh honey, I love it as well but Inferno is my favorite Argento. I loved the dubbing, the weird translated quality and the crazy overkill.
Opera is another good one.

It might be my favorite horror film, to be honest. Couldn't resist buying a copy of it a couple of months ago and seeing for the third time. It's perfect through and through. The sets, the colours, the performances and the score all contribute to create a heavy and creepy atmosphere, unequal to anything else I've seen within this genre. And the ending is just spectacular. I really want to see the other Argento films now.
I'm torn towards the remake. A part of me doesn't want to see it for fearing a disappointment, but the other part is extremely curious. I'm gonna have to make up my mind about it.
IDK, I sort of like it as artifice, for things like the sound and the stylized over the top blood. And Jessica Harper is good as always. But it just doesn't really work as horror for me. Not much does since I'm just not a fan of the genre. I think I have it rated as a 5 or 6 on IMDB/Letterboxd.
Don't really care about the remake. Is it actually a done deal now (shooting or finished?) It's been in development hell for like 10 years with several actresses attached over time.

I love dark fairytales so when I saw it I knew it was right up my alley, is the perfect example of exercise and atmosphere doing the lifting, in that regard the movie is on fire, is one of those cases where it works more as an experience than a purely narrative film, but when the images are so strong and uforgettable becomes a different thing completely. With thar said, I think it might be the right material for Guadagnino, especially if it follows some of the same aspects of CMBYN, simple story, strong atmosphere.

The first time I saw it was on a big screen, and it was one of the greatest movie watching experiences that I have ever had. Every time I have watched it since I always do so with the lights off, and the sound cranked up, and it still kicks my ass every time. One of the great works of atmosphere in movies. I agree with pacinoyes that Deep Red may be the more satisfying movie overall, but Suspiria from beginning to end is just a fucking trip that never lets up.
