Amazon Prime will now unleash the unique vision of unrelenting horror from Suspiria, starring Dakota Johnson and Tilda Swinton, onto viewers. Based on the cult masterpiece from Dario Argento, check out why everyone was talking about Amazon Studios’ experimental supernatural thriller.
Darkness has been building at the center of a world-renowned dance company. Its artistic director Madame Blanc (Swinton), a young American new to the troupe named Susie Bannion (Johnson), and a grieving psychotherapist (Lutz Ebersdorf) become entangled in a bloody nightmare.
Here are 5 reasons why you have to see Suspiria on Amazon Prime:
5) Dakota Johnson!
A major highlight of the horror flick, Dakota Johnson has created a naive and engaging character with Susie Bannion. Her charismatic portrayal will instantly captivate viewers right from the start. Watch as Johnson explores her range, especially as she dives headfirst into the electrifying dance rehearsal sequences.
4) Jessica Harper!
See if you can spot the original Suspiria starlet in the remake. Jessica Harper mentioned in our exclusive interview, “I was playing a different role in the new version of the movie. First of all, it was very challenging. I had to speak German, which I had never done before! [Laughs] That was challenging artistically. I had to speak a foreign language and inform it with the emotional content necessary for the scene.”
3) Tilda Swinton!
Tilda Swinton delivers such a commanding performance as director Madame Blanc. Viewers will be unable to take their eyes off of her, especially when she puts on the makeup for the grieving psychotherapist (Lutz Ebersdorf).
2) The Score!
You can’t fool me! This wasn’t an original score to Suspiria, it’s a Radiohead album! Just as Goblin transformed the original’s unique soundtrack, Radiohead’s Thom Yorke experiments with memorable piano ballads, mechanical beats, and atmospheric songs.
1) Highly Recommended!
Similar to the original in all the right ways, Suspiria memorably stands out on its own as well, pushing the levels of terror. Aided by a knockout cast, this is a remarkable thriller that will leave you with a long lasting impression.
Suspiria arrives on Amazon Prime May 3rd, 2019. It’s also available on DVD and Blu-Ray.
