Video: When the idea of a Suspiria remake first entered the atmosphere, it sounded about as appealing as a mass of maggots dripping from the ceiling. (Watch the original!) But the trailers have been intriguing, and now we have a freaky clip that shows us stars Tilda Swinton and Dakota Johnson in action.
Though Luca Guadagnino’s version will obviously take some major liberties with Dario Argento’s vivid, majestic horror classic — which it should, otherwise why bother remaking it? — this new Suspiria will retain the basic idea of an esteemed dance company that’s long been concealing some very sinister secrets.
In this scene, we see a rehearsal where Johnson’s character is directed by Swinton’s to “improvise freely”. And then...
Helena Markos, is that you? You haven’t aged a day!
Suspiria opens in Australian cinemas on November 8.
