The Original Print of “Suspiria” Was Missing For Decades. Now It’s Coming To Portland.
For decades, the 35 mm original cut of baffling, proto-slasher arthouse flick Suspiria was perhaps the most sought-after print in the world.

But that version went missing just a few years after the film’s release.
