You haven’t really seen Dario Argento‘s horror masterpiece Suspiria until you’ve seen it projected on the big screen. After years of only knowing the film from its murky DVD, seeing it in theaters last year was an unforgettable experience. Argento’s surreal colors and that unsettling score deserve to wrap around you, to trap you. That’s not something you can properly experience at home.

And now, a lot of people will have the chance to see this movie as it was intended. An uncut 35mm print of Suspiria has been discovered in pristine condition by the Chicago Cinema Society and it will make its way across the United States for a screening tour later this year.

Dario Argento‘s Suspiria is one of the greatest horror movies of all time, a surreal voyage into a realm of unanswerable questions, horrible mysteries, and visuals that defy reality. It’s a colorful nightmare. It’s a 98-minute fever dream. And its score, by Goblin, will melt your skin off and explode your ear drums.

While the news of a Suspiria remake was greeted with jeers by horror fans, it’s undeniable that something interesting is going on here. Luca Guadagnino, the director of I Am Love and A Bigger Splash, is behind the camera and he’s an inspired choice to take on a movie about a ballet school operated by an evil cult of witches. And now, things just got a little more interesting: Radiohead’s Thom Yorke has signed on to score the film.

suspiria remake

You should look upon any remake of Dario Argento’s horror masterpiece Suspiria with a certain amount of caution and distrust. Like the sinister, hiding-in-plain-sight villains of the original film, this remake is saying all of the right things and doing its best to pull you into a hellish trap from which you cannot escape. Don’t believe its lies. Get out while you still can!

Or maybe sit down and stay awhile. Maybe it’s okay to listen to director I Am Love director Luca Guadagnino describe his vision for the remake, which has been in development for years under a series of different directors. And who knows? Maybe the promise of a cast that includes Tilda Swinton and Dakota Johnson will be enough to convince you to get comfortable and relax. Maybe.

suspiria review

(Welcome to the /Film Movie Club, a new semi-regular feature where we delve into some of our favorite movies, focusing on films that lie a little off the beaten path. Today: Dario Argento’s Suspiria.)

Some movies benefit from being watched at a particular time, in a particular place, while you are in a particular mood. Suspiria, Dario Argento‘s 1977 horror masterpiece, is a gripping and unsettling experience in any context, but it practically demands to be watched in the dark, on the biggest screen you can access, with the sound cranked up as high as you can bear. Oh, it it helps if you start watching if after midnight, so you’re just tired enough to wonder if you’re actually seeing what you think you’re seeing.

That last part isn’t necessary, but when I recently settled in for a late night repertory screening of Suspiria, I found myself instantly battling fatigue. The result: one of the most memorable movie-watching experiences of my life, where Argento’s film merged with my susceptible, dreary consciousness to create the ultimate experience of inhabiting a bad dream. But even without that extra help Suspiria plays like a nightmare – logic plays second fiddle to a world where bad things happen to good people for reasons that are intentionally vague and maddening. You can’t argue with the visions of an uneasy sleep.

Suspiria remake

A remake of Suspiria, Dario Argento‘s gorgeous and dreamlike tale of witchcraft at a boarding school for dance, has been in the works for a very long time. For most of that period, David Gordon Green was planning to direct the film. He’s said his version was going to be “a very faithful, extremely elegant opera. I don’t mean musical opera, but it would be incredibly heightened music, and heightened and very operatic and elegant sets.”

When Green pulled away from the film, he did say that it would still be made, by “a great Italian director.” Now we know that he was talking about Luca Guadagnino, whose film I Am Love was released in 2009, and who has the new movie A Bigger Splash at the Venice Film Festival. Guadagnino, who was previously set to produce Green’s version, says Suspiria is next for him, and his version, he says, will be “very different.” Read More »

Suspiria TV series

The Suspiria film remake may be dead, but that doesn’t mean you can keep a coven of witches down. There’s now a Suspiria TV series in development out of Europe, with original writer/director Dario Argento on board as “artistic consultant.” But you’re probably not expecting precisely this plan for the TV version of Argento’s film about a dance student who discovers a horrifying supernatural secret at the heart of her new school.

Meanwhile, there’s also news of development on a Django TV series, based on the western character originally played by Franco Nero. Read More »
