The original Suspiria is regarded as one of the scariest movies ever made. It’s unique combination of oversaturated colors, ghoulish soundtrack, and general confusion made it an all-time classic. Amazon Studios has a lot to live up to now that it’s trying to remake the film. This new behind-the-scenes video shows just how they attempted to pull it off.
The plot is the same: a young and ambitious dancer is trying to get into an exclusive and renowned performance troupe, but what she doesn’t know is that the directors are all evil witches. Painful scenes of body horror ensue, such as the scene outlined here where someone is ripped apart by dark forces.
Amazon Studios’ Suspiria was released October 26, and currently holds a 62% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Young American dancer Susie Bannion arrives in 1970s Berlin to audition for the world-renowned Helena Markos Dance Company, stunning the troupe’s famed choreographer, Madame Blanc, with her raw talent. When she vaults to the role of lead dancer, Olga, the previous lead, breaks down and accuses the company’s female directors of being witches. As rehearsals intensify for the final performance of the company’s signature piece, Susie and Madame Blanc grow strangely close, suggesting that Susie’s purpose in the company goes beyond merely dancing. Meanwhile, an inquisitive psychotherapist trying to uncover the company’s dark secrets enlists the help of another dancer, who probes the depths of the studio’s hidden underground chambers, where horrific discoveries await.
