Suspiria 2018 – well, it’s Suspiria, but… hang on – is a remake of the 1977 Dario Argento horror movie, which I haven’t seen (and I know I should have done), but how often do Hollywood horror remakes work? Very rarely.
Okay, so the plot, here, is that a darkness swirls at the center of a world-renowned dance company, one that will engulf the troupe’s artistic director, Madame Blanc (Tilda Swinton), ambitious young dancer Susie Bannion (Dakota Johnson), and grieving psychotherapist Dr Jozef Klemperer (Lutz Ebersdorf).
Some will succumb to the nightmare. Others will finally wake up.
Watching this full trailer, this certainly looks like it’s aiming for a ’70s vibe, given when the original was made, but I’m in two minds as to whether it’ll work as a film. A film that was directed by someone like Drio Argento in the ’70s is going to appeal to a niche audience, which is not what the Hollywood bean-counters want.
Suspiria 2018 is released on November 16th in the UK.
