Suspiria (2018)


The music score is the debut score by Radiohead singer Thom Yorke, who succeeds Radiohead co-composers Jonny Greenwood and Phil Selway into film scoring. Greenwood is notable for scoring the films Paul Thomas Anderson and Lynne Ramsay. Selway scored Let Me Go (2017).

Jessica Harper, who played Suzy in the original Suspiria (1977), appears late in the film as Dr. Klemperer’s wife Anke. In an interview with her and screenwriter David Kajganichat the film’s surprise Fantastic Fest premiere in Austin, TX, Harper and Kajganich revealed he and director Luca Guadagnino thought that would be the best character for Harper to play, Guadagnino contacted her and proposed the idea to her, which she immediately agreed to and then she immediately contacted the Berlitz School to practice and learn German for her scenes. For Harper, the hardest thing to do was getting the dialect right while walking backwards.

In an interview with Elle magazine, actress Dakota Johnson revealed the intensity of the shoot had…”fucked [her] up so much that [she] had to go to therapy.”

Dakota Johnson completed 2 years of ballet training on preparation for her role in this film.

Tilda Swinton‘s performance as ‘Dr. Josef Klemperer’ is credited under the name ‘Lutz Ebersdorf’. There was a long running rumor that Ebersdorf was a real person, though there is a clue in the name tying this alias to Swinton – Eber meaning ‘boar’ or ‘swine’, and ‘dorf’ meaning ‘town’ in German. Therefore, Swine-town, or ‘Swinton’.

The first footage premiered at the 2018 CinemaCon presentation. It was said to be so ‘intense and disturbing’, that some audience members left, midway through.

Luca Guadagnino (who was originally attached to the project as a producer), was announced at the Sept. ’15 Venice Film Festival to direct, and was planning to bring the entire cast of his film A Bigger Splash (2015) for Suspiria (2018), but only Tilda Swintonand Dakota Johnson returned for this movie.

In 2008, Natalie Portman was set to star in the film, with David Gordon Green as director.

Dakota Johnson said in the Autumn/Winter ’15 issue of AnOther magazine that she was already deep in ballet training to prepare for the film. In November 2015, director Luca Guadagnino said in an interview with Italian website Daruma View, that Tilda Swintonwould be in the movie along with Johnson, and filming would begin in 2016.

Luca Guadagnino began filming 4 months after finishing work on Call Me by Your Name(2017) in 2016.

Judi Dench was rumoured to play Madame Blanc, when David Gordon Green was to direct.

Apart from “Lutz Ebersdorf”, the two detectives and a small handful of minor roles, many without speaking roles, the entire cast of Suspiria (2018) is female. Given his comments that this interpretation’s visual style is inspired by the films of Rainer Werner Fassbinder, this could be seen as director Luca Guadagnino‘s tribute to Fassbinder’s The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant (1972), which was comprised of an entirely female ensemble. Also indicative of this Fassbinder tribute is the casting of Ingrid Caven as housemother Miss Vendegast. In the early 1970s, Caven was married to Fassbinder and appeared in many of his movies.

This film marked the fifth collaboration between director Luca Guadagnino and actress Tilda Swinton. The previous were The Protagonists (1999), Tilda Swinton: The Love Factory (2002), I Am Love (2009) and A Bigger Splash (2015).

At 2 hours and 32 minutes, this remake of Suspiria is nearly an hour longer than the original.

Although rumors that the actor playing Dr. Josef Klemperer (credited as “Lutz Ebersdorf”) was really Tilda Swinton in disguise had circulated since the movie’s filming, it was not actually confirmed until Swinton and director Luca Guadagnino were interviewed by the New York Times in October 2018. In that interview, Swinton clarified her prior denials: “‘The answer to the question to me, “Are you playing Dr. Klemperer in Suspiria?” is always that Dr. Klemperer is played by Lutz Ebersdorf,’ Swinton told me last week in an email. Yet there is a more specific question she has been waiting for someone to put to her, ‘and curiously, to date, nobody has thought of it.’ That query, if anyone had bothered to ask, is ‘Are you playing Lutz Ebersdorf?’ And the answer, Swinton said, is ‘an unequivocal yes.'” When asked why she played the double role, Swinton answered, “for the sheer sake of fun above all. As my grandmother would have it – a motto to live and die by – ‘Dull Not To.'”

Director Luca Guadagnino enjoyed working with Vanda Capriolo on Call Me by Your Name(2017) so much, he immediately offered her a role in this film.

In order to help distinguish Suspiria (2018) from Suspiria (1977), director Luca Guadagnino chose not to use the vibrant color palette used in the original.

When David Gordon Green was set to direct, Isabelle Fuhrman was announced to play Suzy Bannion, Isabelle Huppert as Madame Blanc and Janet McTeer as Miss Tanner. Michael Nyqvist and Antje Traue were also cast, but it is unknown whether they would play updates of original characters or entirely new ones.
Chloë Grace Moretz‘s fifth horror movie remake, following The Amityville Horror (2005), The Eye (2008), Let Me In (2010) and Carrie (2013).

This is the second horror/thriller movie for Mia Goth. The first one was A Cure for Wellness (2016).


The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

The black dress Susie (Dakota Johnson) wears when she goes out features the same floral pattern as the original Suspiria (1977), found on the walls of the school’s secret corridors, a subtle nod to the eventual reveal of her being Mother Suspiriorum.
In addition to playing Susie/Mother Suspiriorum, Dakota Johnson also played Susie’s twin sister Naomi in the opening credits of the film, as revealed by director Luca Guadagnino in an October 2018 interview with Vulture. Naomi is the pregnant sister in the pink dress looking over their mother (Malgorzata Bela as she’s tended to by their other sisters and farmhands.

User Reviews


High-brow, bleak horror.

trymcnl16 October 2018
I can understand why this film has been so polarizing. With that said, know that I’m clinging to the side that thinks this movie is an absolute masterpiece. I’m a huge fan of Argento’s legendary 1977 film, but aside from title, character names, and general plot, this film is entirely separate from that technicolor nightmare fairy tale. Guadagnino has created a dour, political, and animalistic horror epic that’s closer in style to a Fassbinder film or Kubrick’s The Shining than anything in the Giallo ouevre.

People will hate this movie. People will adore this movie. Either way, it was made to elicit strong reactions and I have no doubt that it will.

Edit: scrolling through these one star reviews it’s become pretty clear that most of these people have not….seen…..the movie

Fails to deliver on early promise

davidkhardman17 October 2018
For the first half of the film I was really intrigued and impressed. Setting the story in 70s Berlin, with constant references to the Baader-Meinhof group/Red Army Faction, provided a strong atmosphere. There was also some really squirm-inducing, grisly action – different from the original film, but serving the same purpose.

But then this all went nowhere. I suspect that the writer didn’t really know how to wrap things up, so they simply tried to overpower the viewer with visuals. But sometimes more is less. The original film left almost everything to the imagination. This one leaves nothing to the imagination. It was all a bit of a mess, ultimately. It left me very disappointed.

We should left the old movies in the past

bigblack200912 October 2018
Every scene in Suspiria is like a Instagram post rather than a movie. The beauty try to compensate for the lack of substance. We find master strokes from Guadagnino and a nano-thin plot that is an excuse to throw sumptuous visuals at the viewer. Argento was right. Remaking Suspiria was a bad idea to begin with. The movie by Dario Argento was maybe a child of its own times. It’s very delicate; almost childish. It’ just doesn’t translate to modern cinema and the attempt came out as very bland, boring and without a soul. Simply try to recreate what worked in the past is not a safe way to success. We would do best to remember that.

Very disappointing. Embarrassing cringe-fest

arrowmeetstarget23 October 2018
I was looking forward to this, but there is not even a story here. The fact that it is an almost 3 hour movie makes that very difficult to sit through. I thought it was cheesy, not really scary, not really horror. I found myself cringing for the sake of the director or whomever was driving it off the cliff that no one was warning them. In short, the filmmakers seem to want to treat the project like a graduate film school thesis. It tries to push the limit of sensation, but ends up a pseudo intellectual bore. They shouldnt have remade Argento’s movie unless they could make it enjoyable. Recommend watching something else with your three hours.

This is definitely gonna be one of the divisive films of the last 10 years at least. I have mixed feelings about it. There’s obviously a lot of meaning behind the craft of this film and hell if I can figure out the meaning behind it. There were points where I thought the movie was messy and other times where I think it succeeded in what it wanted to do.

On one hand some of the films strengths include the pacing in the first half which builds tension, introduces characters that are mysterious, interesting and well thought out and the aura of mystery that is perpetuated by the dance academy. On the other hand the film has some of the most jarring sequences I’ve seen period.

Especially the climax of the film before the epilogue which is one of the most jarring and frankly insane things I’ve seen and I don’t know if it’s garbage or not. I can’t tell if it’s the films fault or mine for not getting it. Some of the imagery and violence was so sporadic/excessive that it took me out of the film and just left me disgusted in a bad way.

The film has some enlightening things to say about the dance industry and 1970’s culture in general but I feel sometimes the film loses focus when it tries to balance so many plot plots, imagery and themes. My opinion could change though and I can’t deny that this film is well made on a technical level with the acting, score and choreography being particularly well done.

The one definitive thing I can say about this film is that I have never seen a film like Suspiria. It is one of the most unique and original films I have seen for a long time.

I’m gonna give this a 6 as a placeholder.

See it for yourself and make up your own mind.


Not sure I have ever felt so conflicted over a film

So dull

rolandcat18 October 2018
I almost cried. Achingly boring. When the sixth act started I felt I could leave soon the relief.

So dull. The film drags like watching paint dry. Not even with Tilda Swinton did it work.

Call me by your name was such a masterpiece and this film a total rubbish piece of storytelling. The acting is great, music great, cinematography great. The storyline the ways it’s been told. Just terrible.

One of the most painful films I’ve ever seen. I’ve seen a few.

Straight to streaming for this one!! It’s not even crap enough to be cult.

80% of this film could be rated 10/10, the other 20% lets it down.
