Suspiria

Suspiria ★★★★★

I would like to start off this review by saying this just was NOT as scary as I thought it was gonna be. Like at all. It was very atmospheric however so I can see how it would’ve felt truly dreadful in a theatre. Anyway, this was honestly freaking awesome and I don’t really know how else to describe it. Weirdly, it has the spirit of the og Suspiria, or at least it shared certain element camp that I wasnt expecting from Luca’s version but really enjoyed (Okay and honestly it was even somewhat humorous throughtout??!). The best part about this for me was probably the actual integration of dance with such remarkable choreography — specifically Olga’s “solo”, Volk, and ESPECIALLY act: Suspirorum. Speaking of Act 6: Susprirorum, that was my FAVORITE scene. Beautiful, haunting... Such incredible use of step printing that needs to be used again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also, ugh, literally all the costumes were incredible. Even just the everyday fits... they were all always stepping out. I can’t imagine this remake of Suspiria to be directed by anyone other than Luca. Fantastich.

Sorry but I fucking HATED the soundtrack. It was either did nothing for me or was fucking annoying when Thom Yorke was SINGING. No sir!!!!!!!!!! I wasn’t expecting a Goblin-like soundtrack for Luca’s Suspiria but this was just not at all fitting tbh. Honestly brings the stars down for me.
