“When you dance the dance of another, you make yourself in the image of it’s creator”
This ominous phrase looms heavy over the latest trailer for Luca Guadagnino’s upcoming Suspiria remake. The girls in the dance academy are suspicious of their artistic director (played by Tilda Stinton) but the dancers remain in awe of her abilities. “Shes incredible,” one shares with another, “the way she transmits her work“. But there is an evil presence that even you feel, hanging over the academy, luring these young women to an dark fate.
Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria has continued to impress since it’s first teaser trailer, and that momentum shows no signs of slowing down. From what we can see in this most recent trailer, the art and philosophy of dance has been woven deep into the Suspiria mythos, a detail that is sure to bring fans a rich and intricate story. Attentive fans might also find that Mia Goth’s journey in the film seems to mirror many iconic scenes from the original Suspiria. Have we been tricked? Is Mia Goth’s character our new Suzy Bannion? With each piece of the puzzle, the picture should become more clear but at every turn we are surprised and left with more questions.
A darkness swirls at the center of a world-renowned dance company, one that will engulf the artistic director (Swinton), an ambitious young dancer (Johnson), and a grieving psychotherapist. Some will succumb to the nightmare. Others will finally wake up.
Suspiria is easily one of the most anticipated films of the year, and this most recent trailer is prove that the film will not disappoint. Every one of us were skeptical when we heard that Dario Argento’s 1977 classic was getting the remake treatment. For years it has been held up as one of horror’s most visual stunning and cinematic masterpieces of Italy’s famous Giallo Horror. Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria has slowly shown itself to be not only a respectful re-imagining of Argento’s work but an entirely new vision, true to the horror and originality of it’s source material.
Suspiria is an Amazon Studios production, starring Dakato Johnson (Fifty Shades of Grey), Tilda Swinton (We Need to Talk About Kevin), Chloe Grace Moretz (Carrie), Mia Goth (A Cure for Wellness), and Jessica Harper. Radiohead’s Thom Yorke has been charged with creating the eerie, driving score which is prominently on display in this most recent trailer.
Suspiria debuts at 75th Venice International Film Festival on September 1st. It’s set to be released in the U.S on November 2nd, 2018, after a limited release October 26th in select New York and Los Angeles theaters.
