Horror remakes may rarely be worth your time, but what happens when Luca Guadagnino reimagines Dario Argento’s Suspiria? Instead of deep reds, it’s now coldness and realism. Topics also include feminism, German Autumn, the Third Reich analogies and the relevance of the several subplots to the story.

Suspiria (2018). Directed by Luca Guadagnino. Starring Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, Angela Winkler, Mia Goth, Chloë Grace Moretz.

The horror classic ‘Suspiria’ splits opinions. Is it failed feminism or is it misogynistic? Is it giallo or not? Is it a good film? Is it a happy accident? What is the Suspiria trilogy, and are the followups in the same league? What about the rest of the Dario Argento resume? This and more within.

Suspiria (1977). Directed by Dario Argento. Starring Jessica Harper, Stefania Casini, Alida Valli, Joan Bennett, Barbara Magnolfi.
