‘Suspiria’ Remake Will Not Be Colorful Like Argento’s Original; Coming This Year?

We were kind of confused when photos of Tilda Swinton (in crazy old age makeup!) emerged from the Suspiria set this month, because we were pretty sure filming had already wrapped earlier this year. As it turns out, director Luca Guadagnino shot in Italy at the tail end of last year and just finished the film this month in Berlin; he took a break in January due to another obligation.

In other words, Amazon Studios’ Suspiria remake is now completely shot, and Guadagnino is in post on the film. Speaking with Indiewire, who note that the movie could be hitting theaters as early as this year, the Italian filmmaker dug a bit into his vision for Dario Argento’s horror classic, revealing that the lush color palette from Argento’s film will not be present in his movie.

Said Guadagnino:

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.

Chloe Grace-Moretz, Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton and Mia Goth star.

In Suspiria:

A young American ballet dancer travels to a prestigious dance academy in Europe, only to discover it is something far more sinister and supernatural. She becomes increasingly terrified after a series of gruesome murders ensue and she slowly unravels the dark history of the academy.

David Kajganich penned the script.

    Suspiria is in my top 3 favourite horror movies – and once upon a time I’d be all “no no no!” but for some reason I don’t have a problem with this one being remade – I think it’s the cast that has swung it.

    • J Jett

      Saturn, i agree. the cast for this new film is what is attracting me to it.

  • Wil McMullen

    In truth I never saw any reason for a remake but since their doing it, let’s hope its a remake done right.

  • Aaron King

    That’s good news. It needs to be its own thing.

    • dsxy

      Then it wouldn’t be a remake, surely?

      • J Jett

        not being EXACTLY like the original film doesn’t mean it’s not a remake.

  • Matt Miller

    I think that’s a good point. So they can tell the story in a new form, not just making an imitation.

    • J Jett

      Matt i agree w/ you. i’d rather this movie at least try to do it’s own thing (despite it being a remake) as much as possible. i love the coloring used in Argento’s film and i think this remake trying to do the same thing would be a mistake.

  • The only sure thing in the movie is Tilda. That chick was great in everything!

  • Horrible Day

    BOOOOOOO

  • It can still look pretty beautiful, the vvitch pulled it off with the gloomy cinematography.. I can see that type of tone in this remake

    • Simon Allen

      Yuk i hope it is nothing like The Witch at all .

  • Ocelot006 .

    Someone please give us a colorful horror film. If there was one that was gonna do it in this modern era it would be Suspiria. But we got fucked here.

    • James

      Exactly! The colorful visuals and the soundtrack are such a big part of why suspiria is so good 🙁

      • Ocelot006 .

        It still could be good. I’m open minded here. I don’t hold Suspiria is much high regard. Not even a top Argento film for me. But damn….dark and gloomy like everything else bums me out.

      Check out The Neon Demon.

    ‘Suspiria’ Remake Will Not Be GOOD Like Argento’s Original.

    • luca

      Absolutely

  • luca

    Here comes that sinking feeling….

  • EvilHead1981

    Given how they are describing this one, I also expected them to wedge in “grounded in reality” into the mix.

    Meh…

  • GinsuVictim

    What’s next, remake Hausu without any visual style?

  • dsxy

    As with any horror film, i try to keep an open mind but from what the director has said, it seems he would have be better just doing his own thing, then describing it as a homage.

    Unless he plans to do the three mother’s, this is damn pointless

  • Blood Boil

    Yawn.

  • Vincent Kane

    But can I still watch the original though???

  • Spencer Rutt

    chloe grace moretz is fine but not in horror movie remakes. Carrie… Let Me In… everything about this movie sound terrible, I’m most likely out..

  • Saltoner

    this is as useless and stupid as the matrix reboot that’s happening.
