Suspiria. Watch this. Then we’ll talk.
I know it’s silly at this point to belabor it, but this Suspiria movie looks very, very good, which I doubt any of us would have anticipated a few scant months ago.
This thing is lush, and full of dread and mania. It also boasts more Tilda Swinton than you can shake a scythe at. I know we’re all supposed to be very cool bois and toss doubt and snorts around about remakes of classic horror movies, but I don’t have that kind of silliness in me, children. Go elsewhere for it. This thing looks like the kind of movie that’s made primarily for an audience of me. I get the sense of a more impressionistic style of storytelling, prioritizing emotion over plot or effects, and a desire to push Tilda Swinton at me in more and varied ways than I should probably be comfortable with.
With a score composed by Thom Yorke, and starring Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, Mia Goth, Lutz Ebersdorf, Jessica Harper (seems familiar), and Chloë Grace Moretz, Suspiria lands November 2. At that time, I will stop watching this on repeat to buy a ticket.
