[[spoiler:The evil in question manages to possess it into attacking its owner.]] Prior to that is a more straightforward example: [[spoiler:Seeing how Albert was part of the coven, it's likely that the dog recognized him as evil, which is what provoked him to attack.]]

Probably the most famous (and arguably the best, though it's often in contention with ''Film/DeepRed'' for that honor) Creator/DarioArgento film, ''Suspiria'' is a movie that doesn't play by ''any'' rules. It's the first part of the Three Mothers trilogy by Director Dario Argento which also includes ''Film/{{Inferno}}'' (1980) and ''Film/MotherOfTears'' (2007).

* FollowTheLeader: Argento says it's a fairy tale, inspired by ''Literature/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs''. However, the plot follows more closely with ''Literature/HanselAndGretel''.
