Suspiria 2

It was not uncommon for genre movies to get released under various names. Hammer's 1958 release Dracula was renamed Horror of Dracula to avoid confusion with the 1931 Universal classic. 1974's Blood For Dracula was also retitled in America to Andy Warhol's Dracula to cash in on the artist's fame, despite his not having much to do with the movie. One of the weirdest title changes though, was the Japanese release of Blood Red. Director Dario Argento had a big hit with Suspiria, so for the  Japanese release of his earlier film they retitled it Suspiria 2 depite it not only having no connection to Suspiria, but also having been made two years before it.
