Suspiria question

When Mater Suspiriorum sits down on the bed behind the curtain in Suspiria, is she shot in reverse motion? There seems something unnatural about her movements to me.

It does look so unnatural and creepy doesn't it! I assumed it was shot in reverse because of how it looks.

I've always felt it was some kind of shadow puppet projection - two dimensionally forming a solid silhouette. The way Mater Suspiriorum 'falls' onto the bed certainly suggests puppet projection of some kind.
