A psychic who can read minds picks up the thoughts of a murderer in the audience and soon becomes a victim. An English pianist gets involved in solving the murders, but finds many of his avenues of inquiry cut off by new murders, and he begins to wonder how the murderer can track his movements so closely.
The maker of "SUSPIRIA" now takes you on a journey through the macabre, the bizarre. . . the unnatural.

Gianna: I think that a woman's gotta be independent so she can... Marc: Oh, don't start with me about all that woman's stuff. It is a fundamental fact... men are different from women. Women are... weaker; well, they're gentler. Gianna: They're what? Weaker? Gentler? [howls in laughter] Gianna: [Gianna stops laughing, stands and moves to the table, pushing things off of it] Marc: What on earth are you doing? [Sitting again and holding her arm up] Gianna: Come on, Tarzan. Why don't you try me? Marc: What's that? Gianna: Indian wrestling.

- Not all cuts were waived by the BBFC when the film was re-submitted in 2005, following the 11 seconds of cuts made in 1993. On a Dario Argento collection where versions could be chosen (English or Italian) the English version showed a very sloppy cut before the unfortunate lizard was seen on-screen with a pin through its head. The Italian had no such cuts.
The closeup shots of the killer's hands, clad in black leather gloves, were performed by director Dario Argento himself.
In one scene David Hemmings walks past a bar at night. The bar is styled after the famous painting "Nighthawks", by Edward Hopper.
Director trademark:[Dario Argento] Murder victim crashes through window.
Director trademark: [Dario Argento] Character recalls clues from memory.
