In a confused horror film era that can’t seem to decide if we deserve more awful attempts at cheap jump scares or obscure art-house films with no special effects, news of a new horror movie is always bitter sweet. I love scary movies, especially older scary movies. That is the reason I hate to hear about someone attempting to remake not only a classic but one of my all-time favorite horror movies. My immediate anger was quickly subdued however after watching the new Suspiria trailer.
Before we begin, I wanted to mention something important. If you love movies, it’s never to late to follow that passion. Getting into the quickly growing film industry may be easier than you think. If you’re interested, Click Here!
Dario Argento’s 1977 cult-classic, Suspiria, has become iconic within the horror genre for its suspense and masterful score. Goblin, an Italian band, was responsible for the iconic Suspiria music and the new rendition appears to be taking a similar tone. Thom Yorke, frontman for Radiohead, will not only be acting in the new movie but creating the original score as well. The film will star Dakota Johnson, from the Fifty Shades franchise, as well as Tilda Swinton of The Grand Budapest Hotel and Doctor Strange. Italian director, Luca Guadagnino, should bring a fairly artistic and dark atmosphere to the remake. He is known for films like A Bigger Splash and the recent success of Call Me by Your Name as well as work with Tilda Swinton in The Protagonists.
Similar to the plot of the original film, Suspiria will take place at a world-renowned European dance academy. While attending the academy, suspicious things start to occur that peaks the interest of the main character, Susie, which leads to an investigation with sinister results. Although the remake is produced by Amazon Studio, it will supposedly be theatrically released November 2 rather than straight to Prime Video. Although the news of a Suspiria remake immediately put more chills down my spine than the actual movie, the trailer and people surrounding the film has given me hope.
