A blood-stained “S”. Looks really cool, and I think it builds up our anticipation for Luca Guadagnino‘s (director of the 2017’s Oscar winner “Call Me By Your Name” for Best Adapted Screenplay by James Ivory) remake of legendary Italian slasher “Suspiria” (directed by the Italian horror maestro Dario Argento, 1977). 

Tilda Swinton, Dakota Johnson, Mia Goth, Chloë Grace Moretz, Lutz Ebersdorf & Jessica Harper (also starred in the original!) will be some of the ‘victims’ (?) and the synopsis is the following:

Susie Bannion, a young American woman, travels to the prestigious Markos Tanz Company in Berlin in the year 1977. She arrives just as one of the Company’s members, Patricia, has disappeared under mysterious circumstances. As Susie makes extraordinary progress under the guidance of Madame Blanc, the Company’s revolutionary artistic director, she befriends another dancer, Sara, who shares her suspicions that the Matrons, and the Company itself, may be harboring a dark and menacing secret.

Let’s hope that even though the the director has stated that the movie will be completely different from the original, it will still live up to our expectations. Just cannot wait!
