| Yawn...
Knowing the original film I was excited after watching the trailer thinking it was going to be a decent remake. Maybe I should've informed myself on the movie prior to watching it because I still don't know if it's a remake or something branching off the original. At this point I won't bother figuring that out.

Witches running a dance academy seems to be the only thing the 1977 and 2018 version have in common. Maybe there's more things they have in common but I would catch myself nodding off. Some people are saying if you enjoyed "The Shining" you will enjoy this movie. I'm sorry, but NO. The shining actually kept me intrigued and creeped out. This movie made me want to fall asleep. Variety is the spice of life and some will like it and others wont. I'm part of the latter group. A complete and utter bore, for me anyway.

If you like it, more power to you. I'm glad you enjoyed it. If you don't, welcome to the club.

Did You Know?


Although rumors that the actor playing Dr. Josef Klemperer (credited as "Lutz Ebersdorf") was really Tilda Swinton in disguise had circulated since the movie's filming, it was not actually confirmed until Swinton and director Luca Guadagnino were interviewed by the New York Times in October 2018. In that interview, Swinton clarified her prior denials: "'The answer to the question to me, "Are you playing Dr. Klemperer in Suspiria?" is always that Dr. Klemperer is played by Lutz Ebersdorf,' Swinton told me last week in an email. Yet there is a more specific question she has been waiting for someone to put to her, 'and curiously, to date, nobody has thought of it.' That query, if anyone had bothered to ask, is 'Are you playing Lutz Ebersdorf?' And the answer, Swinton said, is 'an unequivocal yes.'" When asked why she played the double role, Swinton answered, "for the sheer sake of fun above all. As my grandmother would have it - a motto to live and die by - 'Dull Not To.'"


Dr. Josef Klemperer: A delusion is lies that tell truth.


At the end of the ritual scene, one of the deceased dancers on the left side of the screen clearly has their head showing, but in the next shot it's edited out again.
