Argento vs Fulci? Aw shit, we's all fucked now, boy.

The Beyond is bad beyond comparison. This one is just so fuckin' boring. That spider scene, gee. Over three minutes of absolutely nothing. Suspiria is full of its charms.

Both are fun b-movies because of their complete disregard for any sense of cohesive logic and enjoyably goofy moments and music as well as beautifully stylized cinematography and editing choices. But in comparison to Suspiria, The Beyond is aimless and incoherent whilst Suspiria is feels more precise in what wants to do despite both having relatively simplistic aims. But Suspiria doesn't have a hilarious scene of a little girl getting shot in the head. Either way, Suspiria is better.
