Horror films for some people is exhilarating and exciting – others find every excuse to avoid horror in its whole entirety – good news however comes for fans of the creepy and disturbed in the newest horror film set to drop later this year – and Amazon Studios have released the first trailer.
Entitled ‘Suspiria’, the film stars Dakota Johnson and Tilda Swinton as Berlin ballerinas back in the 1970’s. In a remake of the classic 1977 Italian horror movie from Dario Argento, director Luca Guadagnino depicts the story of a dance student who uncovers a horrifying secret in Swinton’s school. Amazon debuted a scene of the film at Cinemacon in late April, causing disturbed reactions.
“It’s one of the most fucked up things I’ve ever seen at #CinemaCon,” said Collider’s Steven Weintraub after the premiere. “People at my table turned away from the screen. All I can say is it’s beyond extreme and gross and I need to see more.”
If that wasn’t enough Johnson told ELLE that the making of the film, “fucked me up so much that I had to go to therapy.”
The score for the trailer and film is also noteworthy, taking inspiration from Vangelis’s iconic Blade Runner music. Radiohead’s Thom Yorke lead the music production.
“Vangelis, it’s his hands that made that, which encouraged me, because I think that was the thing I was finding most daunting. Normally, for a horror movie, it involves orchestras and these specific things. But Luca [Guadagnino], the director, and Walter [Fasano], the editor, are very much, like, find your own path with it,” Yorke told BBC radio last year. “They’re giving me as much freedom as they can…I just have to find a way into it. At the same time, I’m so far out of my comfort zone I don’t know what’s going on.”
Set to be released on November 2, you can check out the first trailer below.
