Given how well Call Me By Your Name was received, it’s no surprised that a lot of hype has built behind director Luca Guadagnino’s new film Suspiri.
It’s a remake of Italian director Dario Argento’s classic horror from 1977 and stars Tilda Swinton, Dakota Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, Mia Goth and Jessica Harper. It also boasts a score by Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, replacing the original soundtrack by Italian rock band Goblin, which will definitely be adding to the “hype perfect storm”. In case you haven’t seen the original, the synopsis of the film reads:
“As a darkness builds at the center of a world-renowned dance company, its artistic director (Tilda Swinton), a young American new to the troupe (Dakota Johnson), and a grieving psychotherapist (Lutz Ebersdorf) become entangled in a bloody, sighing nightmare.”
Speaking to Indiewire, Guadagnino talked about how he made the film his own, in no small part by cutting all the primarily colours from the colour palette. “It will be cold, evil and really dark,” he said, adding that he believes the original is a “masterpiece”.
Suspiria will be released on 2 November 2018.
