SUSPIRIA, 2018, Amazon Studios, 152 min. Dir. Luca Guadagnino.
Oscar nominee Luca Guadagnino (CALL ME BY YOUR NAME) directs an unsettling and original take on the 1977 cult horror classic SUSPIRIA. In this riveting psychological thriller, American dancer Susie Bannion arrives in 1970s Berlin hoping to join the world-renowned Helena Markos Dance Company. In her very first rehearsal, Susie stuns the company’s famed choreographer, Madame Blanc, with her talent, vaulting to the position of lead dancer. Olga, the previous lead, breaks down and accuses the “Mothers” who run the company of being witches. But before she can flee, she is captured and tortured by a mysterious force somehow connected to Susie’s dancing. Despite these early warning signs, Susie continues her rise to the top of the dance academy at all costs. As rehearsals continue for the final performance of the company’s signature piece, “Volk,” Susie and Madame Blanc grow strangely close, suggesting that Susie’s purpose in the dance company goes beyond dancing.
Meanwhile, psychotherapist Dr. Klemperer discovers a disturbing diary from his patient, a former Markos dancer named Patricia, outlining an ancient demonic religion practiced by the Mothers. After Patricia mysteriously disappears, the doctor tries to alert the police but gets nowhere. Taking matters into his own hands, he approaches a dancer named Sara for help. Following their meeting, Sara ventures into the depths of the dance studio’s hidden chambers, where strange and horrific discoveries await.
SUSPIRIA features a powerful female cast, including Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton (WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN, DOCTOR STRANGE), Dakota Johnson (the FIFTY SHADES OF GREY franchise), Chloë Grace Moretz (IF I STAY, THE MISEDUCATION OF CAMERON POST) and Mia Goth (A CURE FOR WELLNESS), and haunting music composed by Radiohead lead singer Thom Yorke.
