“Technically exquisite remake of Dario Argento’s classic Italian horror film of 1977, SUSPIRIA 2018 is clearly a labor of love for director Luca Guadagnino (CALL ME BY YOUR NAME). But be warned: this is an homage not just to the cult original but to a time when horror films such as The Wicker Man got nastier and nastier as they went on. This new version is set in late Seventies Berlin and Dakota Johnson plays Susie, a young American dancer who successfully auditions for the Markos Dance Company and immediately comes under the witchful, sorry, watchful eye of charismatic Madame Blanc (Tilda Swinton), who is soon obsessed with her new pupil. Keep a lookout for Swinton playing at least one other character, some startling contemporary dance, and for Jessica Harper, who played the lead in the original and who pops up in a touching cameo. Just don’t eat beforehand.” – Globe and Mail.
