We’ve been waiting for a while to hear more about Oscar-nominated director Luca Guadagnino ‘s new version of Dario Argento’s Suspiria. Yesterday, crowds at CinemaCon finally got a look and it sent people on Twitter into a frenzy.
Ummm I am traumatized after seeing a scene from "Suspiria" in which Dakota Johnson controls the body of another woman as she dances. The woman's body literally cracks in half. She is like, torn apart. Spitting, urinating, bleeding. It's… A lot. #CinemaCon

First clip from Suspiria invokes a dancer being thrown around like a rag doll telekinetically in a mirrored rehearsal space, bones breaking, becoming a contorted mess. Very gruesome and hard to watch. This film will make most people feel uneasy. #CinemaCon

Dakota Johnson stars alongside Chloe Grace-Moretz, Tilda Swinton, Mia Goth, Angela Winkler, Sylvie Testud, Malgosia Bela, Jessica Harper, and Lutz Ebersdorf.
Written by David Kajganich, the film that centers on, “A young American Ballet dancer who travels to a prestigious dance academy in Europe, only to discover it is something far more sinister and supernatural. She becomes increasingly terrified after a series of gruesome murders ensue and she slowly unravels the dark history of the academy.”
Suspiria was co-financed by Amazon Studios and K Period Media. It features a score composed by Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and is set for a Fall release.
