First SUSPIRIA Clip Features a Creepy Dance and The Director Wants The Film to be a Relentless Disturbing Experience
The first clip has been released for the highly anticipated remake of the horror thriller Suspiria. The clip features Madame Blanc (Tilda Swinton) outlining plans for a new dance in which she says Susie Bannion (Dakota Johnson) can improvise freely. As you'll see, she gives herself to the dance and gets really into it, but it also seems to attract a demonic creature.
When talking about the film in an interview, director Luca Guadagnino tells THR that he wants the film to be the most disturbing experience you can have:
“I hope that the movie comes across as a relentless experience that’s going to go deep into your skin all the way down into your spine. I want the movie to perform as the most disturbing experience you can have. The movie is about being immersed in a world of turmoil and uncompromising darkness.”
Suspiria is set in Berlin, and the story follows a young dancer who joins a dance company. That dance academy happens to be run by witches, and as you might imagine weird and horrifying things begin to happen as the terrifying mystery behind the school and its teachers unfolds.
In the film, 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.
The movie has an impressive cast that includes Dakota Johnson as Susie, Tilda Swinton, Lutz Ebersdorf, Chloe Moretz, Mia Goth, Renée Soutendijk, Jessica Harper, Sylvie Testud, Angela Winkler, Malgorzata Bela, and Ingrid Caven.
The film was directed by Luca Guadagnino (Call Me by Your Name) and it looks like he did a great job with this film. I'm really looking forward to it scaring the hell out of me.
Suspiria will be released in New York and Los Angeles theaters October 26th, and then expand nationwide November 2nd.
