Before the theatrical release date, Amazon Studios and K Period Media has released a terrifying clip starring Dakota Johnson from the highly anticipated Suspiria. Based on the cult masterpiece from Dario Argento, the star-studded cast includes Mia Goth, Tilda Swinton, and marks the return of the original starlet, Jessica Harper.
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 director Luca Guadagnino’s bloody nightmare.
Here are 5 reasons why we love “Improvise Freely” from Suspiria:
5) Twerking Gone Wild!
In the clip, Madame Blanc (Swinton) starts the dance lesson off, counting numbers to keep the timing going. Allowed to improvise, Susie Bannion (Johnson) twirls her hair into the air as she starts her sexy dance. Notice how Blanc stares at Susie like she’s obsessed with her.
4) What The Hell Was That!?!
All of a sudden, we’re taken to a dark and creepy place. Something with wrinkly skin and claw-like fingertips moves its hands around. It appears to be taking possession of Susie!
3) She’s Gone Red!
As we previously mentioned, an eye-popping image was released as well from the upcoming horror flick. In the photo, Johnson appears to be wearing a bright red and alluring outfit! She is surrounded by her scantily-clad dance team, who are also wearing the same provocative costume. Is she rehearsing her moves for this dance?
3) Her Partner!

In an interview with Screen Daily, Swinton describes director Luca Guadagnino, ““For me, his ability to understand the way cinema works is something that makes me feel very happy and secure because there’s a safety net. And also he’s prepared to be as bold as he needs to be. He’s up for it — that’s what I always ask for in a partner.”
1) The Running Time!
Guadagnino describes his remake, “I knew I wanted to make sure I was going to be uncompromising in the way in which I was portraying violence, a violence that would be felt by an audience in a very psychoanalytically real way.”
