Bangkok Alt-Cinema to Couple Live Music, Italian Horror ‘Suspiria’

BANGKOK — A downtown alternative cinema will give horror-movie mavericks a new lease of spine-chilling experiences next week.

For the Halloween season, a screening room in Sathorn area will show Italian supernatural classic “Suspiria” along with a live music performance.

The 1977 movie focuses on an American girl who transfers to a German ballet academy before she discovers that the school is a front for sinister organization. It is the first film of “The Three Mothers” trilogy, and regarded as director Dario Argento’s masterpiece with stylistic elements and vibrant color palettes.

The movie will be a remastered version with English and Thai subtitles. It will screen Oct. 18 through Nov. 6 at the Bangkok Screening Room.

Only one screening, at 8pm on Oct. 20, will be accompanied with a live music score ending, performed by Bangkok-based producer-musician Pakorn “Beam” Musikaboonlert.
