Suspiria

Suspiria ★★★★½

“Mother Suspiriorum ... I am She”

This was a whole another experience than I excepted before going into this. I love the 1977 version of Suspiria, and I was both excited and intrigued how Luca was going to reinterpret the horror classic that is Suspiria. Well, he did a outstanding job. I was on the edge of my seat throughout this whole movie. This isn’t a movie (thank god) that relies on cheap jump scares, it’s psychological horror and Luca tackles that marvelous. The camera work is its own character and is enhancing the feeling of something isn’t quite right and the uncomfortableness of it all. Not only is the camera work it’s own character, but so is the score which is also enhancing the eerie feeling.

WOMEN .... women. Tilda Swinton, Dakota Johnson, Mia Goth and Chloë Grace Moretz and all the other ‘mothers’ are brilliantly cast in all their roles. Dakota and Tilda especially shines.

The rehearsal of all the dances numbers are joy to watch and especially the Volk performance when they were wearing the red rope ouftiftts which was a absolutely mesmerizing scene to experience. The choreography and feeling that went into that performances ... gosh. 

The third act was insane. Mother Suspiriorum.
