Luca Guadagnino‘s Suspiria is still months away from opening in theaters, but a few people have already seen it, including Quentin Tarantino who has given it a rave review.
While talking to the Italian outlet La Repubblica, the director revealed that he shared his version of Dario Argento’s classic to Tarantino.
I showed it to Quentin Tarantino. We’ve been friends since our jury duty at the Venice Film Festival,” Guadagnino said. “I was nervous but eager to hear his advice. We saw it at his place and his reaction warmed me. He was enthusiastic about it, in the end he was crying and hugged me. Because it’s a horror movie but also a melodrama, my goal was to make you look at the horror without being able to take [your eyes off the screen] because you’re captivated by the characters. Amazon is very happy.”
Dakota Jonson stars in Guadagnino’s Suspiria as an aspiring dancer who uncovers dark secrets in her prestigious dance company.
Tilda Swinton, Mia Goth, and Chloë Grace co-star in this dark film from Amazon Studios, which opens in theaters on November 2, 2018.
