In this episode of The Beauty of Horror, Chandler talks with Rhetoric and Composition researcher/scholar and horror writer Dr. Emma Kostopolus about the visceral beauty of Dario Argento’s seminal Suspiria (1977).

The two discuss aggressive colors, crushed blue velvet walls, video games, the “aesthetic sandwich”, and, of course, aesthetics!
