As part of Music Month, Filmmaker magazine editor Scott Macaulay picks out the most seminal movie soundtracks of all time.
Slide 6: Suspiria (1977)
The Italian rock group Goblin composed this score for Dario Argento’s 1977 horror film, and it’s a bitches’ brew of banshee shrieking, psychedelic guitars and chanting vocals that escalate to cries of “Witch, witch!” It’s often said that movie scores should sublimate themselves to the action, but the score for Suspiria chucks this advice out the window, going mano a mano with Argento’s extreme imagery.
