Susie Bannion (Dakota Johnson) has dreamed of studying at the prestigious Markos Dance Academy in Berlin since she was a girl growing up in a religiously conservative family on an Ohio farm. She arrives there and immediately impresses the school's artistic director, Madame Blanc (Tilda Swinton).

Just before Susie's arrival, another dancer, fellow American Patricia Hingle (Chloë Grace Moretz), flees to join the Baader-Meinhof gang of leftist militants who are causing a commotion in Berlin, and more importantly, because she's discovered Madame Blanc is the leader of a coven, whose charges are influenced in a variety of ways by the supernatural aspects of the school. Susie begins to have terrifying nightmares as her star quickly rises at the school.

  • 5 stars "The perfect combination of sexy and creepy"
  • 5 stars "As a fan of the original, I really enjoyed this. It's like an alternate universe version of the source material. It's nothing like the original so check that at the door and go in and have fun. The cast are great, there's some serious nightmare fuel in a couple of scenes. It's about 20 minutes too long but still loved it."
  • 1 star "Horribly boring is what this movie is. I love the Horror genre, but this movie isn't worth anyone's money."
