Susie Bannion (Dakota Johnson) is a brilliant young American ballerina who travels to Berlin to study dancing at the Markos Tanz Company, one of the world's most renowned schools, under Madame Blanc (Tilda Swinton)'s management. On her very first day, a student who was recently expelled from the school is murdered. The murder does not seem to be an isolated occurrence and Susie soon begins to suspect that the school might have been involved. This reimagining of Argento’s 1977 film features a stunning score by Radiohead's Thom Yorke to accompany the breathtaking nightmare unfolding onscreen.
