Tremble tremble, the ‘Suspiria’ trailer is here with darkness, tears and sighs
“When you dance the dance of another, you make yourself in the image of its creator.”
The first full trailer for Suspiria from Academy Award-nominee Luca Gaudagnino (Call Me By Your Name) is here in all of its bone-crunching horror.
Oozing with terror, spectral oddities, and an appropriately creepy score from Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, Guadagnino’s reimagining of Dario Argento’s 1977 Italian horror classic takes on a life of its own while still very cleverly paying homage. “When you dance the dance of another, you make yourself in the image of its creator,” as Swinton says at point in the trailer.
A darkness swirls at the center of a world-renowned dance company, one that will engulf the troupe’s artistic director (Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton), an ambitious young dancer (Dakota Johnson), and a grieving psychotherapist (Lutz Ebersdorf). Some will succumb to the nightmare. Others will finally wake up.
The film is directed by Luca Guadagnino, written by David Kajganich and co-stars Chloë Grace Moretz, Mia Goth, Renée Soutendijk, Jessica Harper and Angela Winkler.
Suspiria will have its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival next month before Amazon Studios releases the film in New York and Los Angeles on October 26th and then expanding nationwide on November 2nd.
