Luca Guadagnino’s “Suspiria” remake managed to land a (very hard) R rating by the MPAA for “disturbing content involving ritualistic violence, bloody images and graphic nudity, and for some language including sexual references.”
An ultra-violent clip of the film shown at CinemaCon in April disturbed many who saw it.
“Ummm I am traumatized after seeing a scene from ‘Suspiria’ in which Dakota Johnson controls the body of another woman as she dances,” Los Angeles Times’ Amy Kaufman had tweeted. “The woman’s body literally cracks in half. She is like, torn apart. Spitting, urinating, bleeding. It’s… A lot.”
Slashfilm’s Peter Sciretta wrote, “First clip from ‘Suspiria’ invokes a dancer being thrown around like a rag doll telekinetically in a mirrored rehearsal space, bones breaking, becoming a contorted mess. Very gruesome and hard to watch. This film will make most people feel uneasy.”
The film, based on Dario Argento’s 1977 supernatural horror film, follows the disturbing events at a renowned dance academy where a girl goes missing and things definitely seem to go bump in the night.
Guadagnino’s brutal remake stars Dakota Johnson, Mia Goth, Chloë Grace Moretz and Tilda Swinton.
Amazon plans a November 2 theatrical release for the movie.
