Suspiria Review

In order to properly understand the overall tone and style of writer/director Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria, one must first address its setting: 1977 Berlin, during which a series of violent events occurred that became known as “The German Autumn.” An insurgent group called the Red Army Faction partook in a series of bombings, kidnappings, assassinations, bank robberies, and shootouts with the local police force. They raged a revolutionary war against the West German government with an anti-fascist and anti-imperialism ideology.

Another notable event in 1977 – Dario Argento released the original Suspiria.

Suspiria Reviews

After playing the Venice Film Festival, the first reviews from the anticipated horror remake Suspiria have rolled in, and just as the trailers seemed to indicate. this is bound to be the most divisive film of the year.

Dakota Johnson stars in the film as a young woman names Susie, raised by Mennonites, who has been longing to dance with Berlin’s Helena Markos Dance Company. As Susie digs into her passion for dance, she becomes embroiled in darkness and mystery as she discovers that this dance group is controlled by a coven of witches. This movie has the potential for chills and thrills, but as the critics point out, director Luca Guadagnino (Call Me By Your Name) has opted for something less scary in favor of something more cerebral and unsettling, bringing high art to horror in a way that will frustrate the average genre fan.
