While there remains some trepidation over the release of “Call Me By Your Name” director Luca Guadagnino’s “Suspiria” remake, much of the concern was blown away by the film’s first trailer which revealed the film would not be a carbon copy of Dario Argento’s iconic neon pink-soaked original.
Instead, Guadagnino is going for a 1970s British horror tone, the shot compositions and styling much more akin to the earlier works of Argento or other filmmakers like Nicolas Roeg or even Stanley Kubrick. That last comparison has now been brought up by one of the film’s stars, actress Chloe Grace Moretz, who spoke about her role in the film this week.
Appearing at the Provincetown Film Festival, Moretz says asked to describe the film to which she responded: “This is a really big statement, but this is the closest to modern Stanley Kubrick I‘ve ever seen. You’re put into a world, which I can only describe it as being like ‘The Shining’ in a lot of ways, where you’re just encompassed in a filmmaker’s brain and you’re just implanted in there, and there’s nothing like it that you will ever see.”
Moretz plays a young woman named Patricia Hingle in the film, a girl seemingly on the run for much of it. Describing her character she says: “Here’s the thing, it’s so secretive that it’s super locked down. It’s secretive and I want it to be secretive because you guys are gonna be so shocked. It is WILD. It’s crazy. I can say this, I speak German mainly in the movie. So you won’t recognize me very well. I seem like a different person and I sound like a different person.”
Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, and Mia Goth also star in the film which opens November 2nd.
