Luca Guadagnino’s remake of the Dario Argento horror classic Suspiria won over a lot of detractors with the release of its first trailer, and it seems the new movie has one big fan in filmmaker Quentin Tarantino, who was reportedly reduced to tears (in a good way – we hope!) at a private screening.
“We’ve been friends since our jury duty at the Venice Film Festival,” Guadagnino tells Italian outlet La Repubblica (via Dark Horizons) I was nervous but eager to hear his advice. We saw it at his place and his reaction warmed me. He was enthusiastic about it, in the end he was crying and hugged me.”
!”Because it’s a horror movie but also a melodrama, my goal was to make you look at the horror without being able to take [your eyes off the screen] because you’re captivated by the characters,” he continued. “Amazon is very happy.”
