Luca Guadagnino’s brutal remake of “Suspiria” will hit theaters as awards season ramps up, Amazon Studios announced Monday.

The streaming giant will roll out the Dakota Johnson and Tilda Swinton film on November  2.

In addition to announcing the release, Amazon also floated the first stills from the production featuring Johnson and co-star Mia Goth.

The film is an update of Dario Argento’s 1977 cult classic, read the logline:

As a darkness builds at the center of a world-renown dance company, its artistic director (Swinton), a young American new to the troupe (Johnson), and a grieving psychotherapist (Lutz Ebersdorf) become entangled in a bloody, sighing nightmare.

In an early footage presentation for American movie theater owners at April’s CinemaCon, Guadagnino held nothing back in a graphic scene where a ballerina’s body was contorted — bones breaking, bile-spewing and generally horrifying as she danced in sync with Johnson.

The film also stars Chloë Grace Moretz and features a score by Thom Yorke.
