Several months after Luca Guadagnino’s “Suspiria” remake hit cinemas to divisive reviews, filmmaker and 1977 original helmer Dario Argento has finally offered an opinion on said remake after abstaining from weighing in.
Guadagnino took a very different approach to the material, making some bold choices that distinctly separated it from the original, and as a result Argento confirms to Radio Rai 1’s Un Giorno da Pecora (via Indie for Bunnies) he wasn’t a fan despite calling it more ‘refined’.:
“It did not excite me, it betrayed the spirit of the original film: there is no fear, there is no music. The film has not satisfied me so much…. [Guadagnino] is a fine person…[He] makes beautiful tables, beautiful curtains, beautiful dishes, all beautiful/”
Guadagnino’s “Suspiria” is now available on Digital HD and comes to disc next week.
