The terrifying first full trailer for supernatural horror film “Suspiria” was released Thursday morning, and TheWrap got a sneak peek at director Luca Guadagnino’s remake.
The Amazon film based on Dario Argento’s 1977 creepy classic stars Tilda Swinton, Dakota Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, Mia Goth and Jessica Harper.
It follows the disturbing events at a renowned dance academy where a girl goes missing and things definitely seem to go bump in the night — complete with sharp silver hooks and people crawling up walls in an unearthly way.
Read the logline below:
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 dancer’s body was contorted — bones breaking, bile-spewing and generally horrifying as she danced in sync with Johnson.
Guadagnino, an Oscar nominee for last year’s indie drama “Call Me By Your Name,” worked from an updated script by David Kajganich. The film also features a score by Radiohead’s Thom Yorke.
Amazon plans to release the movie in New York and L.A. on October 26, with a nationwide rollout set for the following week as awards season ramps up.
Watch the first official trailer above.
