Dario Argento's Suspiria (1977) -- the brooding, brutal, and downright bloody tale of an American student among witches at a European dance academy -- is getting the royal treatment it deserves in a forthcoming 4K restoration from Synapse Films, right on the heels of its 40th Anniversary (on August 12), and a re-imagining by Luca Guadagnino (of 2017's Call Me By Your Name) to be released later this year.

Blumhouse.com reports that this version of the cult horror classic has a few points distinctively setting it apart from others (namely the Italian versions). First, the folks at Synapse Films are working directly with Suspiria's original cinematographer, Luciano Tovoli, to get the desired look to every frame. Second, Suspiria was originally mixed with very "directional dialogue" yet most of the prints that exist have the sound at the center. The Synapse version will have this restored to its original intent.

Below, you will find a frame-by-frame comparison from Synapse's version of Suspiria to existing Blu-Ray copies. More slides like these can be seen on their website here:
