Well, this was a nice surprise. The past few years of horror have been pretty solid, but they most certainly aren’t of the same essence as classic horror films from decades gone by. This latest film from Luca Guadagnino is called Suspiria, and as the title suggests, it is a remake of the 1977 classic.
Below is the official synopsis for Suspiria:
“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. Suspiria arrives in theaters November 2. From director Luca Guadagnino. Starring Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, Mia Goth, Jessica Harper and Chloe Grace Moretz.”
On the whole, I think it’s safe to say this doesn’t quite carry the same feel as the original, but I do think it brings something else to the table. The trailer itself feels like it is not of our current decade. More than anything, it feels like something that’d be right at home alongside classic horror films like The Exorcist and Rosemary’s Baby.
If we are to get something along the lines of those films, I’ll be all for it. Sure, it may not do much to satisfy modern horror fans, but to those who want something more along the lines of classic horror, this could be a huge surprise.
