First Trailer: The “Suspiria” Remake

After some terrible first posters and photos, the marketing people behind “Call Me By Your Name” director Luca Guadagnino’s remake of Dario Argento’s 1977 giallo masterpiece “Suspiria” needed to deliver the goods with the first trailer for the film.

They certainly have. Avoiding comparisons with the original, Guadagnino’s film looks much more like a homage to Argento’s earliest films, or more accurately the work of other 1970s horror classics such as Nicolas Roeg’s “Don’t Look Now”.

In the film a darkness builds at the center of a world-renown dance company, its artistic director (Tilda Swinton), a young American new to the troupe (Dakota Johnson), and a grieving psychotherapist (Swinton in old age make-up) become entangled in a bloody, sighing nightmare.

Mia Goth, Chloe Grace Moretz, and Jessica Harper also star in the film opening this Fall.
