New horror film ‘Suspiria’ reduced Quentin Tarantino to tears, director Luca Guadagnino said.
The picture, starring the likes of Tilda Swinton, Dakota Johnson, and Chloë Grace Moretz and Jessica Harper, will also include Radiohead’s Thom Yorke who has put together his first-ever film score. Harper was the lead actress of the original film, although she appears in a different role.
When discussing the film, Guadagnino explained how he showed the film to his close friend Tarantino and it had quite the effect: “I showed it to Quentin Tarantino. We’ve been friends since our jury duty at the Venice Film Festival,” Guadagnino told Italian magazine La Pepubblica. “I was nervous but eager to hear his advice. We saw it at his place and his reaction warmed me.”
“He was enthusiastic about it – in the end, he was crying and hugged me. Because it’s a horror movie but also a melodrama, my goal was to make you look at the horror without being able to take [your eyes off the screen] because you’re captivated by the characters. Amazon is very happy.”
Amazon Studios recently unveiled the first trailer for the highly-anticipated film which is set to be pretty gruesome. The teaser is made up entirely of disconnected images. According to the film’s description, the premise if the feature is a young American aspiring dancer who travels to Germany to perfect ballet dancing at a famous ballet school in Berlin. While attending, students begin to disappear and she soon finds out that the school has a dark history involving witchcraft and gruesome deaths.
Blimey. Here it is:
