Suspiria – Luca Guadagnino (2018)

So this 2018 “Suspiria” does have something to do with the 1977 classic of Argento. It is based on, or inspired by it. Watching the 2018 I don’t recognise much of Argento’s film, or anything really.

The young, American dancer Patricia travels to Berlin in the time of the Rote Armee Faktion terror to try to join the prestigious school of Dr. Klemperer (Tilda Swinton). The school has a building in which the dancers live and where they can also perform and receive an audience.

There is a vacancy, as one of the girls disappeared and soon another does as well. It quickly becomes clear that there is something sinister going on. The group of women working for the school appear to form some sort of witches coven.

The film is alright. There are some weird scenes and some contemporary horror, but overall there is mostly a dance school with a dense atmosphere.
