* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The entire score by Goblin is pretty impressive, sometimes even entering HellIsThatNoise territory.

* CompleteMonster: Helena Markos known as the Black Queen and leader of a cult of evil witches is along with her sisters a power-hungry and sadistic HumanoidAbomination who see themselves as Death and suffering Incarnate and have for centuries amassed power and great wealth leaving only death and misery in their wake. They see mere humans as dust since they are completely removed from humanity and take great joy in massacring them and care only for maintaining their own unholy existence. They are arguably among the best examples of female Dark Lords in fiction.

Added DiffLines:

* ParanoiaFuel: The witches can strike at any minute, killing whoever they want and MakeItLookLikeAnAccident (in the case of [[spoiler: Daniel]]). Or else they can just make it look as if someone ran away and vanished [[spoiler: like Sara]].


Added DiffLines:

* SpecialEffectFailure: A bat attacks Suzy in the third act, but it looks incredibly fake.

* AntiClimaxBoss: Helena Markos.

to:

* AntiClimaxBoss: Helena Markos. [[spoiler: She's the head of the coven of witches who can do pretty much anything they want. Once Suzy sees a flaw in her invisibility, she easily stabs her]]. ''Film/MotherOfTears'' addresses this, saying that she had been left in a weakened state from a battle with another witch.



* EnsembleDarkhorse: [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_%28Suspiria%29 Albert]], the little boy, has gained an inexplicable cult following.
* {{Narm}}: "[[Literature/{{Beowulf}} So]]! You've come to kill Helena Markos! A ha ha ha!"
** Averted in the original Italian dub [[NightmareFuel 'I'm coming, American! And let the living meet the dead, and the dead the living...']]
** Mostly all of Helena Markos' lines in the English dub are overly [[LargeHam hammy.]]
** The bat near the end of the movie. Seriously, had anyone who worked on that movie even seen a real bat?
** The first victim's name happens to be ''Pat Hingle''. It's either an unfortunate coincidence or one of the weirdest {{Shout Out}}s in the history of cinema.
*** Knowing Argento, it's most likely a ShoutOut.

** Miss Tanner as well is one of the most memorable characters in the film, with many calling Alida Valli the real scene-stealer.
* {{Narm}}: FirstInstallmentWins: ''Suspiria'' is seen as a classic of horror cinema, despite some flaws, and it is widely respected in film circles. ''{{Film/Inferno}}'' is viewed as SoOkayItsAverage (though it does have a strong fanbase too) while ''Film/MotherOfTears'' is viewed as a disaster.

* {{Sequelitis}}: 1980's ''Film/{{Inferno}}'' and (to a far greater extent) 2007's ''Film/MotherOfTears''.

* {{Sequelitis}}: 1980's ''Film/{{Inferno}}'' and (to ** The "names of snakes" scene is odd to watch, mostly because it's bizarre to see girls in their twenties bickering like children. This is a far greater extent) 2007's ''Film/MotherOfTears''. leftover detail from the original script where they were children. Dario Argento just didn't change the lines.



* VindicatedByHistory: Although the film was a commercial success, it was trashed by critics upon release because of its numerous plot holes and weak characterization. Nowadays, it's considered a masterpiece of SurrealHorror and one of the most visually stunning films of all time.

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: The set design and lighting truly seems like something out of a nightmare.
