Horror Fans Rejoice: First Trailer For Luca Guadagnino's Suspiria Remake
Watch this with the lights on.
If you're like us, and you get frightened at even the THOUGHT of a scary movie then you'll probably want to make sure all the lights are on if you plan to watch the latest trailer for Luca Guadagnino's Suspiria remake.
So in case you aren't up-to-scratch with your 1977 Italian supernatural cult classics, Suspiria was directed and co-written by Dario Argento, and stars Jessica Harper as an American ballet student who transfers to a prestigious ballet academy in Germany.
Though joining the academy may first appear like a dream come true, after a series of gruesome murders, Harper's character Suzy Bannion begins to discover something wicked is at the core of the school.
Now, Luca Guadagnino -- who had recent success with the critically praised film Call Me By Your Name -- is remaking the film starring Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, Mia Goth, Lutz Ebersdorf, Chloë Grace Moretz and Jessica Harper.
The movie's soundtrack was compused by Radiohead's Thom Yorke which is also quite the vibe.
Guadagnino's remake has been hotly anticipated by horror fans, especially after the news that the film made Quentin Tarantino cry.
"I showed it to Quentin Tarantino," the director said, "I was nervous but eager to hear his advice. We saw it at his place and his reaction warmed me. He was enthusiastic about it, in the end he was crying and hugged me."
Meanwhile one of the film's young stars, Chloë Grace Moretz, called it "the closest to modern Stanley Kubrick" she's seen.
"I can only describe it as being like The Shining in a lot of ways," Grace Moretz said, "where you’re just encompassed in a filmmaker’s brain and you’re just implanted in there, and there’s nothing like it that you will ever see."
If the trailer didn't give you chills, check out some of the reactions to a clip that was shown at CinemaCon in April:
Suspiria heads to Aussie cinemas November 8.
