Remakes are a dime a dozen these days. The cool thing to do is automatically write off a remake or reboot as useless, especially in the horror genre. But there’s been plenty of arguments against that statement: The Thing (1982), Evil Dead (2013), Cape Fear (1991), etc. They all bring a sense of style to modern audiences while still keeping what was great about the original. Now it looks as though Suspiria will be added the list of great horror remakes. Check out the synopsis and trailer below:
“A darkness swirls at the center of a world-renowned dance company, one that will engulf the troupe’s artistic director, an ambitious young dancer and a grieving psychotherapist. Some will succumb to the nightmare — others will finally wake up.”
What I find most fascinating about this trailer is how it FEELS like Suspiria but doesn’t LOOK like Suspiria. It’s not relaying obvious cues on the candy colored cinematography or Goblin’s rowdy music. The visuals oddly enough look like other 70s horror classics like the Wicker Man of Don’t Look Now. It’s Luca Guadagnino’s vision through and through. Combine that with Thom Yorke’s absolutely spine-tingling musical score and we’ve got movie that could stand along side Argento’s classic.
Suspiria is released November 2nd, 2018
