The first footage from the Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria reimagining has screened to audiences at CinemaCon. Although we, sadly, don’t have the footage to share with you, we do have a host of reactions from Twitter for you to have a gander at. In short, it’s sounding GREAT.
Steven Weintraub calls it, “One of the most fucked up things I’ve ever seen at #CinemaCon”.
Anne Thompson says, “Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria Dakota Johnson dance scene clip is bone-wrenchingly horrific.”
Erik Davis tweets, “Daaaamn! Props to Amazon for playing the sickest, gnarliest, most intense clip from #Suspiria to 3,000 people at this lunch. It features a girl (Dakota Johnson) dancing while another girl is being thrown around, body contorted in nasty ways. Wild & bold”
Amy Kaufman says, “Ummm I am traumatized after seeing a scene from “Suspiria” in which Dakota Johnson controls the body of another woman as she dances. The woman’s body literally cracks in half. She is like, torn apart. Spitting, urinating, bleeding. It’s… A lot. #CinemaCon”
Incredible. Just search “Suspiria” on Twitter to read more, but it’s all similar to the above and that is exciting.
I think the film world collectively sighed when it was revealed that Dario Argento’s Suspiria was being remade, but maybe it’s time we greet it with open arms.
A young American ballet dancer travels to a prestigious dance academy in Europe, only to discover it is something far more sinister and supernatural. She becomes increasingly terrified after a series of gruesome murders ensue and she slowly unravels the dark history of the academy.
Suspiria will be released this Autumn and stars Dakota Johnson, Chloe Grace-Moretz, Tilda Swinton, Mia Goth, Sylvie Testud, Angela Winkler, Małgosia Bela, Lutz Ebersdorf and Jessica Harper.
