Suspiria's First Trailer Is Gorgeous And Spellbinding

Suspiria, the Italian horror remake that at first nobody wanted, is starting to look like a can't-miss experience in its spellbinding, gorgeous first trailer. Check it out for yourself up above.

Like the 1977 original, Suspiria is set in and around a world-renowned European dance academy, centering on a young American dancer who joins the troupe. But all is not as it appears at the academy, as the dark realities of the organization — and its true purpose — begin to make themselves known in surreal and violent ways. 

Stylishly directed by Call Me By Your Name's Luca Guadagnino, the Suspiria remake was originally met with a lukewarm-to-negative reception when it was announced, it being unclear to horror fans why such a singularly-realized classic even needed the remake treatment in the first place.

But with this first look teaser alone, Guadagnino takes a huge step forward in justifying the movie's existence, which he has previously said would be taking a completely different approach to the original's story. 

While looking radically different from the brightly-colored, eerily surreal original, the teaser maintains a tone of sinister dread, with striking cinematography setting the stage. The outdoor scenes look chilly and oppressive, while the indoor scenes look gothic and stately — both will surely serve as stark contrasts to the grisly action once evil takes over, and the blood starts flowing. 

Suspiria stars Dakota Johnson, TIlda Swinton, Mia Goth, and Chloë Grace Moretz. The star of the original Suspiria, Jessica Harper, will also appear in the remake as a new character. 

The movie is written by David Kajganich, who previously wrote the screenplays for The Terror, A Bigger Splash, and True Story. The score is set to be composed by Radiohead's Thom Yorke.

Suspiria will be released by Amazon Studios on November 2. So what say you — shall we dance?
