How can anyone top the great Dario Argento? The reboot of Suspiria aims to be in the same ballpark, and with this new trailer, 2018’s Suspiria hopes to harness the same creepy, stylistic mood of the original classic. Synopsis!
A darkness swirls at the center of a world-renowned dance company, one that will engulf the troupe’s artistic director, an ambitious young dancer, and a grieving psychotherapist. Some will succumb to the nightmare. Others will finally wake up.
This trailer doesn’t do much for me – I’m a die-hard Argento fan, so I’m keeping a skeptical eye open ’til I know more. Right now it feels like a desperate attempt to clone a cult classic. But here’s hoping that with this film, Dakota Johnson gets a film she can really work with. That she’s co-starring with the glorious Tilda Swinton gives me a bit of hope. Not much, but a glimmer. I’ll wait for the next trailer to give final buzz judgemen Suspiria arrives in theaters November 2.
