CGiii Comment

Take a trashy Giallo film from 1977, throw everything at it, including the kitchen sink...and, some big names...what do you get? The same trashy film with higher production values! Many re-makes are unnecessary...this is a shining example!

The [main] problem with Suspiria is monotony, the Tilda-does-Gramps storyline just slows everything down. The sporadic 'horror' is not that horrific. And, the music...what was Thom Yorke on when he 'composed' this? If his remit was dull-and-depressing and torturous-to-the-ear, he did a damn good job.

Now, as some may know, we here @CGiii.com love contemporary dance...and, Suspiria has a generous helping. The choreography is impressive...then there are the costumes, [laughably] marred by the [unnecessary] addition of big M&S underpants. Yes, the actors probably wanted to preserve their modesty...but, c'mon, there must be better ways to cover their bits than by great big M&S knickers!

Luca Guadagnino received the Oscar nod with his last film - Call Me by Your Name - he'll be getting no nods for this good-looking disaster.
