USAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!


There’s also an extended sequence I would describe as supremely bloody.

Spoiler for those that have seen it: it’s the sabbath obviously, starting with Markos blowing Blanc’s neck the gently caress out and then the 5 or so minutes of exploding heads while a cool Radiohead song plays

Ah crap. Well, thanks for the heads up. I thought maybe the arthouse vibe would make it a good crossover film for her. All your comments are making me psyched to see it, though!

Just got back from this, and I loved it. I adore the original and knew this was going to be a total reimagining of the basic concept, and I was OK with that.

Watched this today and thought it was terrible. Tried really hard to disconnect it from the original and view it on its own regards, and it failed on those as well. I have no idea what people who loved this see in it.

I’d like to know what that was too.

Maybe because it was so early in the film and the original was still weighing heavy, but I could have sworn that when the teacher knocks on the window near the beginning it sounded a bit like the buhBOOM tabla hits from the Goblin theme.

Speaking of which, last month I watched Goblin set up for over an hour to do a live score of the 1977 film, only to have the project eat poo poo 10 minutes in. A gigantic letdown

I posted earlier asking if I should take my gf to this, the consensus was "hell no", but we ended up going together anyway. She hated it!

I was sort of expecting to really dig it but I was just sort of lukewarm on it by the end. There are some aspects I admire, in the editing and cinematography, the Fassbinder/new German cinema vibe, the audacity, but it never really adds up to a coherent whole. And its depiction of a woman controlled space is politically much less interesting and radical than the director seems to think. Critiquing the idealization of motherhood and the way women can harm each other, the micro-fascism of groups, none of this is new territory. It feels like a first-draft outline of an idea for a remake of Suspiria, not a fully realized version of it.

I'm not normally one for "identity politics", but I think a woman should have made this. Or failing that, just get like, Rob Zombie to do it or something. Interesting that early on in the development of this remake, David Gordon Green was attached to direct. Kinda fun to imagine him doing this, and Guadagnino doing Halloween instead.

Saw it yesterday and loved it, still feel abit uncomfortable thinking I´ve seen stuff that isn´t supposed to be seen, kinda like "Martyrs".

(And yes, I´ve been a horror enthusiast since the nineteen hundreds)

Loved the film and I really, really liked Dakota Johnson in it. Was hella shocked when I looked up what else she's done and it turned out to be the Fifty Shades of Grey lady.

I actually did not love the film, but I can't really disagree with this, Dakota Johnson was pretty great in it. Nobody else was really up to her level, which was surprising considering Swinton had such an important roles.

Dakota Johnson was especially good at her lovely smirks and she really threw herself into the physically demanding stuff.

Yea I didn't expect her to be as convincing with the physical stuff as she was, I wonder if she already had a dancing background. She's in great shape though, I wonder how she'd do with an action movie.

I agree that the dancing was pretty fantastic. Interpretive dance has become one of those arts like mime where it's shorthand for stupid drama kid stuff that anyone can do and nobody actually wants to watch. But when it's full on serious with people who have real dancing training and whatnot, it can still be powerful.

Really hoping there's a soft reboot of Roar where Tippi passes the torch to Dakota.

The Dancing was indeed great. This first big dance scene is amazing. From the trailer I assumed the witches were going to use some spell or whatever to kill that woman. But I really wasn't prepared for how long and uncomfortable it would be.

All these people surprised at Dakota Johnson being good in a movie never watched Ben & Kate

Which, I mean, not many people did

Well, I'm not some superfan of the original, but I still liked it better than the remake. It's ok that it went in a different direction and I even got over the fact that they skipped the first murder. There were some great parts, like the first solo dance, but as a whole I think it suffered from all the doctor, holocaust, DDR and police stuff which goes together about as well as generals gathered in their masses / just like witches at black masses. Which really sounds like was their inspiration for making this.

Just face it, the original Suspiria is superior and Dio Sabbath is best Sabbath.

Can't believe this movie literally about witches at black masses talking about government protests and the fallout of WWII set in the mid-70s would evoke Black Sabbath.
