It’s been announced that Dario Argento’s classic horror film Suspiria will be getting a 4K restoration next year as a way to celebrate the film’s 40th anniversary, according to DarkHorizons. German lab TLEFilms restored the film, which is said to be making its premiere at the Berlin Film Festival. It will then travel to other countries for theater runs.
Argento has stated, “I can’t wait to see it at the movies again with all the young people who will see it for the first time.”
On a stormy night, the American dancer Suzy Bannion arrives in Freiburg coming from New York to join a famous and expensive ballet school for a three years training. On the next morning, she is informed by the direction of the school that a student she met leaving the place on the previous night was violently murdered and the police is investigating the crime. She becomes friend of another student, Sara, and she realizes that the house is indeed a coven of evil witches.
A remake of Suspiria is currently in production with director Luca Guadagnino. It will star Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Mia Goth as well as original film star Jessica Harper. It is being produced by Amazon Studios.
I’m going to take a second to gush here because I love Suspiria. Can you imagine how gorgeous this film is going to look with a digitally remastered 4K edition? God, those colors are going to be absolutely stunning! No matter what, I will find a way to make a theater visit happen!
