I’m still not very enthusiastic on this bloody Suspiria remake, and it’s gone suspiciously quiet on the Suspiria front for some time now, but some from the new movie was shown at CinemaCon, and the reactions on Twitter are certainly worth reading and may even excite horror fans!
“Ummm I am traumatized after seeing a scene from Suspiria in which Dakota Johnson controls the body of another woman as she dances. The woman’s body literally cracks in half. She is like, torn apart. Spitting, urinating, bleeding. It’s… A lot.”
“First clip from Suspiria invokes a dancer being thrown around like a rag doll telekinetically in a mirrored rehearsal space, bones breaking, becoming a contorted mess. Very gruesome and hard to watch. This film will make most people feel uneasy.”
“Luca Guadagnino presented a scene from his Suspiria remake; there’s a 70s sepia tone … and seriously some of the most disturbing body horror. They went for it and the CinemaCon audience is gasping. Just brutal but with a gentle melody. Holy crap… call me by your bent body.”
I must admit that this does sound rather exciting so maybe this new Suspiria will be worth watching after after all.
The film is directed by Luca Guadagnino, written by David Kajganich, and stars Dakota Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, Mia Goth, Tilda Swinton, Sylvie Testud, Angela Winkler, Ma?gosia Bela, Lutz Ebersdorf and Jessica Harper. No release date yet.
