Suspiria (2018) is to hit theaters on October 26. It’s a supernatural horror film directed by Luca Guadagnino and based on the 1977 film. Read on Nexter.org why it’s going to be the mind-blowing premiere of the autumn. 

Remake of 1977 film

Luca Guadagnino and David Kajganich made Suspiria basing on 1997 film of the same name that was directed by Dario Argento. Also, the original film is partially based on Thomas De Quincey’s 1845 essay Suspiria de Profundis (Sighs from the Depths).

“Genuinely sinister”

Suspiria is the supernatural horror film of a new kind that includes increasingly cruel murders. For those, who are looking for something dark to watch, this movie is a perfect choice.

“Guadagnino has succeeded in making a Suspiria that is genuinely sinister, a work of art that is terrifying for how well he can penetrate the subconscious fears of fourth wave feminism,”  Katie Driscoll has written for Starburst.

Date of release

“Suspiria” opens nationwide November 2 following a limited opening in New York and Los Angeles on October 26.

Also, it was previously shown on September 1, 2018, at the 75th Venice International Film Festival.

Tilda Swinton remarkable transformation 

Amazingly, Tilda Swinton is the one playing 82-year-old male psychiatrist Dr. Jozef Klemperer in Luca Guadagnino’s “Suspiria!”

When she was asked about the role and why she took it,  she stated, “Undeniably, I would have to say, for the sheer sake of fun above all. As my grandmother would have it — a motto to live and die by — ‘Dull Not To.’”

Oscar-winning makeup artist Mark Coulier that worked on Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel. “Although she has a slightly androgynous look from sort of a fashion-model point of view, Tilda’s got a very feminine bone structure,” Coulier said.

Tilda Swinton had to spend more than 4 hours/day to turn into the elderly person for the movie production. Moreover, she asked the makeup artist to make her male genitalia to transform into a man.

“She did have us make a penis and balls,” Coulier said. “She had this nice, weighty set of genitalia so that she could feel it dangling between her legs, and she managed to get it out on set on a couple of occasions.”

Cast

It stars Dakota Johnson – Susie Bannion, Tilda Swinton – Madame Blanc / Helena Markos / Dr. Jozef Klemperer, Mia Goth – Sara, Jessica Harper, and Chloë Grace Moretz – Patricia Hingle.

Harper, the lead in the original 1977 film, appears in a different role (as Anke Meier).

Here are some of the key reviews chosen by Nexter.org:

  • “Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria has turned the horror genre on its head, with powerful women at the centre of a suspenseful, twisted story,” Jenny Desborough for Daily Mirror (UK).
  • “He has crafted a darkly beautiful feminine story but has let the women own every moment, and own it they do,” Millicent Thomas for Screen Queens.
  • “In the brilliant Italian director Luca Guadagnino’s hands, the cult movie first made by Dario Argento as a blood-drenched, supernatural gore-fest is reworked as a highly stylized and self-reflexive performance piece,” Geoffrey Macnab for Independent (UK).
