‘a nightmare fairytale etched in neon colour’: suspiria (1977) and its alternative film posters

 

An innocent American ballet dancer’s excitement at being accepted to a prestigious Berlin dance school turns to terror when she discovers that the institution is a cover for a murderous coven of witches. A nightmare fairytale etched in neon colour, Dario Argento’s witchy shocker Suspiria remains the most famous of all Italian horror movies. Suspiria is the horror movie as high art. Acclaimed for its febrile tone, experimental score by Italian band Goblin, garish lighting and baroque violence, it’s a barrage of primal terror, blood and guts, eardrum-piercing noise and dreamlike imagery.

Luca Guadagnino’s highly anticipated remake of Dario Argento’s Suspiria (1977) will be released within the following month (2nd November U.S, 16th November UK).

Following the exciting soundtrack release of Thom Yorke’s ‘Has Ended’ earlier this week (which you can listen to here), an abundance of alternative movie posters for the 1977 original have been brought to the internet’s attention.

 

 

almost a year on: celebrating the release of call me by your name (2017) with its cinematic parallels to the graduate (1967)

Swimming pools, wide shots and extreme close-ups. Emphasis on facial expressions and what is left unsaid. Exactly 50 years apart in creation, here are just a few examples of the artistic parallels between the two critically acclaimed dramas.
