“I am she.”
I know it’s a bad habit to go into a film with your opinions already formed, but that’s what happened with Suspiria (2018) back in June when I first watched it. I’m not really a fan of the director or the general concept of remakes, so I was really ready to be disappointed. I was so wrong, and this is now one of my favorite films.
I’m still against the general concept of remakes, but I think if you really want to remake a film, it should be like this one. Suspiria (2018) has something new to say, and isn’t here just to rehash the points made by its predecessor. In a world of endless Disney remakes, I really do think that’s admirable.
