Why It’s Okay that the ‘Suspiria’ Remake Won’t Be Colorful

Suspiria Remake

Horror fans were enraged last week when it was announced that Luca Guadagnino’s remake of Dario Argento’s classic giallo film Suspiria would be lacking the signature color palette that the original film is known for. Predictably, fans of the original were none too pleased with this news, with people in our own comments section spouting out barbs ranging from the satirical (“Suspiria Remake Will Not Be GOOD Like Argento’s Original”) to the intellectual (“sounds retarded”). What people don’t seem to understand is that the remake’s lack of the original’s color palette is actually a good thing and I’m here to tell you why. 

Before delving into this, it should be noted that I am not Suspiria‘s biggest fan, but I will try to maintain an unbiased opinion on the matter of Guadagnino’s remake. If you think that completely invalidates my opinion, feel free to stop reading now. I won’t be offended.

Are they gone? Great, let’s get to it. The original Suspiria has two things going for it: its colorful visual style and Goblin’s stellar score. The film is a prime example of style over substance, which is why it has never really resonated with me as a viewer. Take away Argento’s artistry and Goblin’s music and what do you have? A boring movie with a nonsensical plot about a girl wandering the halls of a ballet school. That may sound like a reductive summary of what many consider to be one of the greatest horror movies ever made, but I stand by it.

This is why Guadagnino’s decision to change the visual style of the film is so important (and wise). When you strip Suspiria of the colors and the haunting score, you’re left with a flimsy narrative and an unsatisfying movie. Guadagnino is now forced to make the plot of Suspiria engaging since he will seemingly not be relying on flashy visuals.

To recap the Indiewire interview, Guadagnino’s exact words about his remake were:

It’s a film about guilt and motherhood. It has no primary colors in its color palette, unlike the original. It will be cold, evil and really dark.

Why try to replicate what is arguably (in some people’s eyes) perfect? After all, what is the purpose of a remake? The better question might be: what should the purpose of a remake be? All too often people complain that remakes are “destroying their childhood” or “tarnishing the original.” Those criticisms of a remake don’t hold much weight. The original still exists. It’s not being changed in any way. The worst that comes from a remake is that a younger generation now associates the name of a film to its remake as opposed to the original. A remake should try to adapt a story in a different way. A remake should not merely try to replicate the original. Be honest, do you really want to see Argento’s Suspiria filmed through the eyes of another director? No, you don’t. You should want to see Guadagnino’s Suspiria (if you want to see it at all, that is).

Completely changing the style of Suspiria is the smartest move that Guadagnino could make. If he tried to replicate Argento’s style there would be no point. At best it would be a serviceable copycat a la Gus Van Sant’s Psycho. At worst it would be a shameless and uninspired retread. People are going to complain about the film no matter what, but Guadagnino’s best chance at succeeding is to just do his own thing. People hate change so no one wants to see one of their favorite films change, but then they also don’t want to see it replicated shot-for-shot. Remakes can’t win. It’s a Catch-22. Damned if you do and damned if you don’t.

Remakes are going to be made no matter what. It’s just a fact. I’ve never really understood the hatred for them, as many remakes have turned out surprisingly well. Remakes such as The Thing, The Fly, Sorority Row (yes, I said it), The Hills Have Eyes and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre have all managed to stand apart from the films they were based on. They may not have always surpassed the original, but they were good films in their own right. Suspiria has a chance at being a good movie (just look at that cast!), and Guadagnino’s words should inspire hope rather than anger. What do I know though? I’m just the poor schlub who really dislikes the original.

My question to you, dear reader, is what do you think the purpose of a remake should be? Since this remake of Suspiria is inevitable, what do you want to see in the film? What version of this film would actually make you happy? Of course no opinion can be made until the final product is released. A valid fear is that this could turn out like the Martyrs remake (a film that I was lukewarm on but was still able to appreciate the diversions from the source material), where it is unceremoniously dumped on Blu-Ray with no promotion whatsoever.

Suspiria, which was written by David Kajganich (Blood Creek), stars Chloe Grace Moretz (Carrie, Let Me In), Tilda Swinton (Only Lovers Left Alive, Snowpiercer) and Dakota Johnson (50 Shades of Grey) and is currently in post-production. Production on the film took place primarily in Varese, Italy from September through December, before moving to and wrapping in Berlin in early February. Amazon already has acquired international distribution rights to the movie, and they recently courted buyers at the European Film Market.

    This has now actually got me interested.

  • trash

    are they ever going to release the original on Blu Ray for region A?

  • venerablemonster

    If the purpose of a remake is to do something new or original as you say, then don’t make a remake. I don’t understand your defense of remakes. If it’s not to capitalize on nostalgia but to make something different, then make something different. You should be making something different!

    For this movie shed the title. Look at the “cold, evil and really dark” story that you want to tell and ask yourself why you’re giving it the same title as a movie you seem to be trying to divorce yourself from anyways. Do I want remakes that are carbon copies? No, I don’t want remakes. Show that you can be creative in a creative industry. Otherwise, I have no interest in what you’re making. That’s my hot take.

    • Chip

      The Thing says hi.

    • Ocelot006 .

      It’s not a creative industry. It’s a creative business industry. Business is inherently tied to industry but still, never forget the ‘b’ word. They paid good money for the title that gives instant interest in the film.

  • Cody Briscoe

    I don’t mind remakes for the most part. If a remake can be enjoyable on its own while paying tribute to the original (and introducing the original to a whole new generation of fans) then I don’t see what the problem is. That being said, I can’t imagine this movie turning out very good. People love Suspiria for its trippy atmosphere and colorful visuals, it seems like a mistake to go out of your way to remove them.

  • PsychoMantis18

    ‘A boring movie with a nonsensical plot about a girl wandering the halls of a ballet school. That may sound like a reductive summary of what many consider to be one of the greatest horror movies ever made, but I stand by it.’ – That’s cause you’re an arrogant fool.

    • Chip

      No, he’s right. Unless you can give a better, coherent summary of Suspiria, or any Argento film for that matter. The man does not create good stories. He is a wonderful visualist, and a master of horror set pieces. But he has never elevated the art of film in any other way beyond his style, which I feel Mario Bava does better, and with better plots.

      Argento is horrible predictable: Gorey plot that goes nowhere that makes any rational sense, and then suddenly in act 3 he basically starts and ends an entirely new plot that makes little to no more sense than the first two acts. He does this almost every single time.

      • luca

        What???

      • luca

        How old are you? 12?…

      • PsychoMantis18

        Maybe you haven’t seen any of his films or maybe you didn’t understand the ones you have seen but regardless of how weak you think the plots to his films are, this comment is drivel.

        • Chip

          Go ahead. Prove me wrong then. Explain the merit of an Argento’s plot. Name one with a coherent plot.

          • PsychoMantis18

            Ummm.. how bout Suspiria..

          • Chip

            Incoherent, and meandering.

          • PsychoMantis18

            You know.. not understanding the plot to his films and then jumping online to brandish this ignorance doesn’t make them incoherent, but it does make you an obnoxious fool.

          • Chip

            I’m waiting for an answer then. Educate me. Prove your stance.

          • PsychoMantis18

            As you’re unable to wiki or google the plot summary, here’s a basic rundown –

            Suzie goes to a ballet school where people die and weird shit happens at night leading to her discovery that the school is run by a coven of witches who are housing the original owner of the building and head witch – the sick and decrepit Helena. Suzie kills her, destroying the coven and the building in the process. The end.

            That is the only summary you’ll have me waste time on, the rest you can google to undermine your invalid points.

          • Chip

            The film fails to explain
            1. Who the fuck is this Suzie, and why do we care?
            2. Why is there a coven at this specific school?
            3. What is the coven and the Madam’s goals? They seem to kill for arbitrary reasons.
            4. There’s some vague notions of Suzie being prepared as a sacrifice, but why her specifically, and what are the outcomes? Eternal life? The power t cast a particular spell? She already seems to have the power to raise the dead at will, what does she need to go after Suzie for?

            There are countless other questions because the plot of Suspiria doesn’t really try to be a coherent plot. It’s a backdrop for that amazing imagery. So get off your fucking high horse, neck-beard. Suspiria is a visual masterpiece, but the plot is severely lacking in any sense of storytelling strength. You could just watch a super cut of certain scenes and miss absolutely nothing of value from the experience.

          • PsychoMantis18

            You’re a little slow; guess you consider Lynch films to be plotless also.

            I’m happy to waste time on idiots, but when they are cluelessly arrogant – nup.

            Bye bye, Chip.

          • Chip

            As your entire profile shows, you’re all talk and no substance.

          • PsychoMantis18

            Nice try, simpleton.

          • wedellbudwhite

            Not understanding the plot does not = incoherent plot

          • Chip

            Step up to the plate then. Explain the answers to my questions. I’m not alone here. Professional critics have said the same thing. MOST people say the same thing. Only the super-defensive neck-beards that are worried about being judged rise up with this “NYAH YOU JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND IT” line, while mysteriously never bothering to enlighten the unwashed masses.

            Anyone with a basic understanding of film knows that Supsiria has a suck-tastic plot that is just a delivery device for all the kill scenes. There is no logic or motivation for anything going on in this film except the old “A Wizard Did It” trope, only replace “Wizard” with “Witch”.

          • wedellbudwhite

            Psychomantis18 already did and you ignored it so not gonna bother. Your using that pro critics agree shows me everything I need to know bout you. Why would anyone worry about be judged on bd comments section ? That’s laughable man.

            Gonna respond about your Retarded Romero comments or you just gonna cherry pick what you respond to

          • Chip

            Oh well. Just another defensive neckbeard that can’t love something while embracing it’s flaws. You have to go and pretend it’s perfect because your ego is so attached to it.

    • Aw thank you! =)

      • PsychoMantis18

        Pleasure, handsome.

    • dsxy

      You mock the readers who said ‘its retarded’ then go on to say crap like that.

      While I don’t think personally it’s one of the greatest, it still has alot going for it.

      To me a remake should aim higher, try to produce something better. Build on the plot, build on the suspense but also keep with the hugely successful/loved style of the original.

      I’ve nothing against remakes, but it needs to be more than a half arsed cash grab…. Which this sounds like it is.

      Personally I’d rather someone who has an appreciation for the original write about this remake, with some decent insight. Everything you wrote trace was just utter pointless shit, this site really needs better horror writers.

      • Creepshow

        You’re calling out the wrong dude, man.

        • PsychoMantis18

          I felt it was misdirected.

        • dsxy

          I just wanted to expand on the “girl wanding around” criticism but didn’t do it very well as it comes across like I’m taking aim at psychomantis, but I’m actually agreeing!

          • Creepshow

            Gotcha, carry on.

  • Modok

    You make good points, though on the other hand, some movies are so inextricably tied to a certain style or aesthetic that you can’t take that away without ruining the movie.

    As you said, when people think Suspiria, they think bright colors, synth score and ’70s giallo(ish) vibe. Why bother re-making it without those trademark elements? The story itself was passable, but not really interesting enough to support a more visually subdued re-make.

    I know nothing of Guadagnino’s movies, so maybe he can make this work. But it seems more likely it will be met with a collective shrug by critics and audiences alike.

  • Chip

    To me, a remake should see the seeds of other ideas in the original, and run with those. In the case of Suspiria, the plot is woefully lacking, despite the huge potential of the set up. There’s no reason to include the original’s visual style because the original did that perfectly. So this film should run with the plot and take it someplace worthwhile.

    • Travis_Bickle

      God, all your posts are crying about the same thing. We get you don’t like argento. Once is enough, if anyone cared in the first place.

      • Chip

        I’m so happy you cared enough to pointlessly comment. You can go back to being ignored now. ^_^

        • Travis_Bickle

          You commented a half a dozen times with the same crying dribble, and you called my post pointless? Wow…takes a road map to get there
          ….

  • Ocelot006 .

    The purpose of a remake is what the purpose of any movie should be. Be a good fucking movie.

  • Matthew James Demon Pentycofe

    I’ve been very curious about this remake even though most people have been hating on it. I think that a new Suspiria done right could be amazing. I’d actually like to see more actual witchcraft from the witches instead of someone killing them like a in a slasher movie. One thing I feel the original was always missing was the actual witchcraft element. It would be great if they improved on this aspect in the remake. This is one remake I’ve actually be very curious and even a little bit excited about but I have no expectations for it. Let’s see when it comes out 🙂

    • Chip

      I’m 90% certain that Tilda Swinton will ‘de-age’ in this movie as part of a ritual sacrifice, and a great part of this film will be trying to turn Chloe’s character into the next sacrifice, or the Madam’s protege failing that. That ‘seemed’ to be where Argento wanted the original to go, but in typical Argento fashion, couldn’t quite pull together a coherent plot.

      • I’ve been wondering if that image of her wasn’t a huge spoiler. Like, what if she’s presented as a different character only to be revealed in the end to be The Mother all along.

  • Harley Mitchel Dirk

    Ideally a remake will use elements from the first film and go in a new direction with it. Taking a bit of the old and making in new and uunique. However remakes can fail if they take basic elements of the original and don’t really go anywhere with them. Suspiria is definitely style over substance, but its a style I kinda love. I’m not sure how the remake can match it and my biggest worry is that the film is just a generic retread.

  • Graham

    I’m not against the idea of the remake not incorporating the colour palette of the original. As you said, the original still exists (personally I think it’s beautiful and will gladly accept it as a classic based on style alone), and there’s no sense in complaining that the remake won’t be a carbon copy. However, I just hope that the remake tries to achieve a visual style that is unique and stands out among other contemporary horror films. “Cold, evil, and really dark” could sum up a great number of recent horror movies, which makes me think that the problem won’t be that’s it’s too dissimilar from the original, but that’s it doesn’t do enough to stand out from the pack of its contemporaries. It would be a shame if that were the case. The original is known mostly due to its visuals, so hopefully this one manages to create an atmosphere that, while different, is just as unique and impacting. Although considering we haven’t seen a single glimpse of the movie, it’s far too early to make any judgments. This is all conjecture.

    • ryanstaylor

      That’s my problem with not using primary colors in the palette. It will look like every other damn movie out there, awash in drab tones. In other words, it will look boring as hell.

  • James

    I agree remakes should change things up but changing the color palette just kills it for me.

  • Creepshow

    I still would like to know who’s glowing eyes were in the window, in the beginning of the original. Or maybe not, because not knowing is what made it a “shit your pants” worthy scene. The “less is more” approach really worked in this films favor. I feel we are in store for a BUNCH of explaining in the remake. I hope that’s not the case.

    • Agreed. Over all I feel the film is in good hands, but who knows until we see some footage?

      • Creepshow

        I can’t believe I’m gonna say this about a remake, but…I’m intrigued by this. (I’m disgusted with myself)

  • Jimmy Cthulhuhan

    Sounds fine to me. Never really liked Suspiria in the first place (gasp), but regardless, that it’s not trying to be a shot-for-shot remake is only a good thing I suppose. At least in principle.

  • Believe me, I’ve tried. I even own the damn thing on DVD. I really, REALLY don’t like it.

  • Colin

    Wonderful article, and I couldn’t agree more. Firstly, in regards to all remakes, the entire idea is not to replicate the original. This would be futile and pointless, as the one already exists. The general concept is to filter the same story through a new lens, therefore creating something original while also working within the confines of the same story.

    Secondly, “Suspiria” is not a very good film. It’s intriguing in the same way that crayons are to toddlers in that it’s colorful and wistful and full of dread at times (I suppose the crayon analogy ends with “wistful”) but generally it’s a non-sensical tread through fantastically-lit hallways for 98 minutes. This isn’t to insult fans of the film, but rather to highlight that its story, while not discardable, lends itself to a different type of telling that may yield interesting results.

  • Travis_Bickle

    I wish somebody who was actually a fan of the movie wrote this article

    • MarsupialRebellion

      This.

    • PsychoMantis18

      But then it would be a very different article.

      • Simon Allen

        I think that’s the point here .

        • PsychoMantis18

          Sarcasm…

  • I agree 100% that a remake should stand on its own and not be beholden to the style of the original. I love the idea of a filmmaker with a personal vision tackling any project, even a remake. I’m still intrigued and hopeful for this film. Where I get bummed out about the news they ditched the color palette is this, we get so few visually arresting horror movies these days. With advances in technology and the means to pull off stunning visuals on almost any budget, this remake would’ve been a wonderful opportunity to show that off. But Suspiria 2017 apparently isn’t that film. I’m cool with that as long as it’s good.

  • Geno1987

    Part of the job a remake has to do is IMPROVE on the source material. Removing the colorful visuals which made it stand out is not improving, its neutering it and making it just like every other dark and grey looking horror movie out there.

  • richanthon

    yes this is from the person who gave the new Blair Witch an amazing review!!! lol. NEXT! Suspira is legendary and no one reviewer can ever diminish that status, especially someone who thought this: http://bloody-disgusting.com/reviews/3405596/review-blair-witch-sequel-deserved/

      Enough with the Blair Witch bullshit. The statute of limitations on that ran out a long time ago. Please come up with something new.

          Oh boy, here we go again. It’s like deja vu. Look who’s talking. That’s virtually all you EVER do is bitch. And no, people constantly dredging up old news about someone’s opinion of a film is not a reasonable criticism. I’m sure you’ll let me know how wrong I am. I can hardly wait.

            All I do is represent my arguments which, unlike you, are not brainlessly based on popular view or an underdeveloped pair of testicles.

            And to address your recent display of idiocy, referencing a writers previous review in order to undermine their current stance on a subject is totally valid.

            If someone told you their fav albums were made up of releases by the Spice Girls, Britney Spears, and TLC, and then recommended an album unknown to you, you’d be keen?

  • llcc1103

    How about instead of remakes, reboots, prequels, re-imaginings etc.. we have new original films that become classics

    • disqus_uPh3WDxbQy

      Unfortunately people would still complain. It’s what we do.

  • WHODAT!

    If you didn’t like the original, you probably shouldn’t be the person writing about the remake. I love Suspiria, essentially for the style and score. I generally don’t hate remakes, and some of them are pretty good. I may be the only person that liked The Evil Dead and Blair Witch remakes…because they were so different from the original. But with Argento, and especially with Suspiria, I hope that this news isn’t 100% correct. I’d love to see a bleak opening that slowly transitioned into a look closer to Argento’s, with modern effects and cinematography. I’m scared this will suck, but I’m hoping it won’t.

  • Wil McMullen

    There were a few kills in this movie that were pretty decent, thats it. I wasnt a super fan (I wouldnt even call me a fan). Any upgrades to this movie is alright with me as long as it’s GOOD! I surely hope they made some sense out of that plot.

  • Carl Chrystan

    Sorry, but I think it’s a bit silly and useless asking people what the purpose of a remake should be. Remakes are made for one purpose: to make money! The viewer has no say in it whatsoever. It’s all about the whims of the movie executives. Unless you’ve got some good independents out there who can afford the rights to the franchises (very unlikely) you’ll have things rebooted and remade and sequalised and rehashed and done to death until every penny is wrung out of the public (and, yes, I’m looking at you, ‘Alien Covenant’ people!)

    • Evan3

      Are you arguing with a straight face that indie studios don’t want to make money?

  • Jesse Sikora

    “Part of the job a remake has to do is IMPROVE on the source material. Removing the colorful visuals which made it stand out is not improving, its neutering it and making it just like every other dark and grey looking horror movie out there.”

    This exactly. The point of a remake SHOULD be to take the idea and improve it. Take what people love, in this case the visuals/colours, the amazing score etc…and try to improve on that, the story and everything else. If not, just make a new movie with a different name. I’m extremely disappointed.

    • PsychoMantis18

      Not everyone loves the same thing though, hence –

      Say ‘no’ to remakes.

  • Hack Snyder

    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake wasn’t good. It was a generic slasher that lacked all of the gritty atmosphere of the original film. Everything was too slick and most of the gore was tedious.

    • Creepshow

      Holy hell, there is actually somebody else who thought it was doodie.

      • RKSDooM

        I agree. I remember reading about what was going to happen in the film and thinking that it was going to be the most brutal, scary thing ever, only to have the direction, editing and cinematography end up dramatically undermining the horror.

        The prequel to the remake, however, I seem to recall quite enjoying ( a few, relatively minor, issue aside).

  • Lady Bathory

    I love the original Suspiria and don’t agree that it had a bad story. I mean, a girl arriving at a ballet academy in Europe and finding out that it’s lead by witches is more than many other films have to offer. And the fact that “if you take away the score and the style, it’d be a dull film” applies to any film, doesn’t it 😉 Ok, so much for defending Suspiria…
    I totally agree that remakes shouldn’t imitate the original. That won’t work. And I really appreciate directors going their own way (DGTOW so to speak xD sorry couldn’t help it). That’s why I like Rob Zombie’s Halloween films, for example.
    For me, artistic freedom can’t be big enough when remaking or re-interpreting a film. Use another time period, use a female killer, use a diverse cast, not as token-coloured-cast but as an addition to a new approach to the film’s major themes, etc.
    It’s possible to remake and reimagine a film or franchise and at the same time making huge changes.

  • RKSDooM

    The only time I hate on a remake is when it comes in the middle of a series that I want to see continued, not rebooted. And even then, if it’s done like the FRIDAY THE 13TH remake, where it could basically still exist in the original time line if you squint real hard, it doesn’t bother me too much…

    I guess what I’m saying is – Eh, why not let someone else take a swing at SUSPIRIA? If it sucks, it sucks. When remakes suck they pretty much just go away, they never seem to replace or tarnish the originals (if anything, when a remake sucks, it seems to make everyone appreciate the original that much more).

      Why are you thinking about things like remaking 3 movies that have already been made brilliantly twice?
      Dont be gross

      If somebody wants to do a remake,
      let them remake something that was only okay before or hasn’t been remade before, that they can actually improve on

      Not just rip-off, dumb down, swap the races and genders and throw cgi at it to cash in on somebody else’s hard work and reputation that created a classic

      Theres PLENTY of sci-Fi movies from the 50’s drive in days that someone could get the rights to and start with as a jumping off point for improvement as a remake

    “I am not Suspiria‘s biggest fan”

    I just cant get into giallo, or fulci or argento either

    I’m not sure why I just dont get it?

    Maybe I’m just too crude and American

  • Suspiria is my favourite horror film. Period. I’m of the opinion that the original film does, in fact, have substance as well as style. Is the story minimalistic? Absolutely. But I feel like it is all for the sake of adding to that mysterious, nightmarish vibe. I’ve seen documentaries and read countless books and articles about what Argento envisioned for the film, and what he did to get it as perfect as possible, so I obviously have a much deeper understanding of that film than a casual viewer would. That said, I clicked with the film, it fit my taste. Not everyone is going to enjoy it as much as I do, and that’s fine. But I think the mythology that Argento created with the Mothers trilogy is terribly interesting, and deserves to be explored by other directors. I’m totally cool with a remake, as long as it stays true to the mythology. It could be about anything, set anywhere, in any period in time, as long as it has something to do with Mater Suspiriorum or her sisters.

    Luca Guadagnino is not a very good director.
    None of his films stand out, Io sono amore, A Bigger Splash and others only tolerable due to Tilda Swinton’s star qualities. He has style, good artistic-directing collaborators, cinematography, but his scripts c’mon, either he have really weak ones from the beginning and he doesn’t care about it or he just ruin the decent ones.
    It’s not a surprise that he omits main color-features of original, maybe because he can’t keep up with it.
    I’ve tried to stalker Tilda in the beginning of shooting in Varese (Italy), didn’t went well, the hotel they were shooting in October of 2016 was on top of the mountain, quite remote and abandoned, still went there on car, but the road was blocked. Had to go to vantage point to look at Switzerland.

      Lol, sounds like it is going to be as weak as the original, in terms of directors non existent history crafting skills. That is maybe why they have to rely on something that was already made as a start, instead of plotting a story from the start.
      Thank you and have a nice week

    “Take away Argento’s artistry and Goblin’s music and what do you have? A boring movie with a nonsensical plot about a girl wandering the halls of a ballet school.”

    The astonishing revelation that if you take away the two best parts of a movie, you’re left with a worse movie.

    Okay.
