Tremble! Tremble! The witches are back!
The original 1977 Italian horror film Suspiria – about “an American ballet student who enrolls in a German dance school, only to discover it houses murderous secrets” – is a hallucinatory masterpiece filled with vivid and often nightmarish stylistic flourishes and the most brilliant color palette ever put on film (those BLUES! and YELLOWS! and the RED, RED blood! It’s TOO FABULOUS!). When it was announced last year that it was being remade, many fans of the original groaned and wondered why? But today we get our first true glimpse of director Luca Guadagnino‘s vision and it looks UH. MAY. ZING.
Darkness. Tears. Sighs.
