‘Suspiria’ Remake Has a New Director… http://t.co/nZ7J0SAZzK— BloodyDisgusting.com (@BDisgusting) September 8, 2015
Italian director Luca Guadagnino is now attached to direct the remake of the 1977 Dario Argento classic Suspiria.
He is quoted as saying it will be about a mother-daughter relationship.
"The movie by Dario Argento was maybe a child of its own times. It’s very delicate; almost childish. I have a very strong interest in German literature and film, so I think [my] Suspiria will have to focus very strongly on that moment in history, in 1977, when Germany was divided and a new generation was claiming and asking to recognize the debt of guilt that forged the new Germany after the war against the fathers who wanted to deny the responsibility."

The childishness/fairytale aspect is part of what made the original so strange and dreamlike (and so creepy!). Which will be worse: the remake or the TV series?
