The Only Thing More Terrifying...

... Than The Last 12 Minutes Of Suspiria Are The First 92. I never quite figured out how they worked that out since the film is only 98 minutes to begin with, but here's a lovely US video release poster all the same...

Could the discrepancy with the timings stem from the fact that the length of 104 minutes is based on the celluloid version (24 fps) whereas you might have checked it versus the DVD version in PAL (25 fps) or NTSC (30 fps), with shorter running times due to speed up?

98 minutes is the original runtime according to IMDB - in fact it was even shorter (92 minutes) in cinemas in the US. And observant readers will notice the video poster gets the timing wrong in a different way than the cinema tag line!
