It seems that the remake of Suspiria is quite controversial and now one of the film’s stars has commented on people’s reactions.
Now that the remake to the classic horror film Suspiria has been seen by the industry, word has spread about the divisive response to the film. News has arrived about walkouts mixed with standing applause, with some saying the film apparently pushes things a little too far in places.
No one can agree whether Suspiria is a triumphant remake or a repugnant obscenity but star of the film Dakota Johnson is pleased that people are talking and have a strong reaction to the film one way or the other. Speaking to the Inquirer, she said:
“It’s a true work of art on [director Luca Guadagnino’s] part. I am thrilled to be a part of it. Of course, it’s nice to be involved in a film where everybody leaves the theater happy, but then, do they go home and talk about it? It’s a privilege to be involved in a film where people want to argue about what’s happening, because it’s really time for art to express the things that we need to express. People are ready for it. It’s an interesting moment, especially in cinema. And the fact that it’s a film with a cast of 40 women, but it is still controversial—perhaps we do need to focus on other things?”
Audiences will be able to decide for themselves on Suspiria’s controversial nature when the film releases in November.
A darkness swirls at the center of a world-renowned dance company, one that will engulf the troupe’s artistic director, an ambitious young dancer, and a grieving psychotherapist. Some will succumb to the nightmare. Others will finally wake up.
Suspiria is set for release on November 2nd in the States and on November 16th in the UK and features a cast that includes Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, Mia Goth, Jessica Harper, Chloe Grace Moretz, Renee Soutendijk, and Angela Winkler.
