Amazon Studios has unveiled a deeply unsettling trailer for its upcoming remake of Dario Argento's classic 1977 psychodrama Suspiria. Our latest preview of the film — which was directed by Luca Guadagnino of Call Me by Your Name fame — traces its central rivalry between dancer Susie Bannion (Dakota Johnson) and her severe, cig-smoking instructor Madame Blanc (Tilda Swinton), with original music by Radiohead's Thom Yorke. Although it's devoid of the gut-wrenching, gore-spattered scenes teased at this year's CinemaCon, the clip still proves nothing short of creepy: Its concluding shot shows a sharp metal hook resting on an austere table, hinting at the grisly madness to come.
Guadagnino's Suspiria remake is expected to hit theaters this fall. "You'll see how dance, magic, spells, horror are all intertwined," the director said of the film at CinemaCon earlier this year. According to Johnson, the sets for the film (set in Germany, as opposed to the original's Italy) were so creepy and isolated that they prompted her to seek therapy.
"[Filming Suspiria], no lie, fucked me up so much that I had to go to therapy," Johnson told Elle back in April. "We were in an abandoned hotel on top of a mountain. It had 30 telephone poles on the roof, so there was electricity pulsating through the building, and everyone was shocking each other. It was cold as shit, and so dry." Kind of like that last 50 Shades movie. (Sorry, we couldn't help ourselves.)
