|Notes||The movie is inspired by the novel "Suspiria De Profundis" by Thomas de Quincey written in 1845. |
The film was shot in various German locations such as the Black Forest, Munich and Freiburg.
Due to the refusal of permission to shoot some scenes, the production was forced to reconstruct the exteriors and interiors of the original Freiburg Dance Academy at the De Paolis Studios in Rome (Theater 5) although some parts filmed in the original location remain in the final editing.
Some minor scenes was filmed in Santa Maria di Galeria, near Rome.
The film is the first chapter of "the trilogy of the three mothers" and has had two sequels: "Inferno" (1980) and "La Terza Madre" (2007).
