"Suspiria" is often lauded as one of the best horror films ever made. It has often be labeled a "Disney Horror Movie" and its interesting because its kind of correct. The colors are bright, the mood is very fairy tale-like, and the atmosphere is epic and almost like the pages of a story come to life. Apparently, if you set it to the music of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves" it goes along with the movie flawlessly.
"Suspira" came out in 1977, and it centers around an American dance student transferring to a German dance Academy. After a series of brutal murders, she realizes that the school is a front for a supernatural conspiracy. That's my best guess though, I actually don't really know what the movie is about. There is so much strange material in the movie, you could shake a stick at it. I saw the movie last year, I want to say. While the movie piles on the dread and the scares, its not the scary movie I expected. I never once feared for a bad dream in the night I watched it, and I ended up being correct.
A remake of the movie is coming out later this year. It will star Dakota Johnson and Chloe Mortez. While I groaned at this revelation, the trailer itself actually looks pretty cool. I read that some of the footage from the movie was viewed at the Cannes Film Festival in France last month, and it was getting people pretty nauseated if the report is to be believed. The trailer released is full of great mood, and I am wildly curious to check it out. I am not sure if its going to be a straight up remake, but perhaps the spine of the movies will be similar while the story itself is different, a la "Ocean's Eleven."
