YMMV: Suspiria

  • Anti-Climax Boss: Helena Markos.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The German slap-dancing scene. It serves no real purpose to the plot, and it completely interrupts the ominous atmosphere.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The entire score by Goblin is pretty impressive, sometimes even entering Hell Is That Noise territory.
  • Ear Worm: The intro to the main theme.
  • Magnum Opus: This along with Deep Red is considered Argento's finest work.
  • Narm: "So! You've come to kill Helena Markos! A ha ha ha!"
    • Averted in the original Italian dub '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 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 Outs in the history of cinema.
      • Knowing Argento, it's most likely a Shout-Out.
    • Immediately after the blind piano player is fired, he goes to... well, the Cine-Masochist described it as a "German brodance festival", and that's the only term that fits.
  • Sequelitis: 1980's Inferno and (to a far greater extent) 2007's Mother of Tears.
  • Squick: Nothing like brushing maggots out of your hair.
  • Vindicated by History: 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 Surreal Horror and one of the most visually stunning films of all time.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: The set design and lighting truly seems like something out of a nightmare.
