I’m watching Suspiria by Luca Guadagnino. Tilda Swnton is a great witch. Weird movie, and good.

The original is hard to find. I have only seen it available as DVDs for purchase. I would like to see it.

The remake is actually a whole different Movie. Same setting and premise but a whole different screenplay.
It’s better than the 1977 movie in my opinion. Very strange and disturbing.

This version bombed at the box office. I like the original movie better (from 1977 I think) with Dark Shadows star Joan Bennet.

I liked it. Dakota Johnson carried it very well, she's a surprisingly good actress.
It would be fun to see more remakes of Giallo films.

I loved it and watched it twice. Disturbing fun with some really good performances. I love the original too but they have little to do with each other plot wise.

First of all: goddamn I hate Box Office Mojo these days, they totally ruined it.
I liked Suspiria and I was a bit surprised to find out it really did flop, and bad. The budget was $20M and worldwide B.O. only $7.7M. That $20M most probably is without P&A although I suspect that number isn't very high. Still, it's basically a European art house film, a 70s pastiche, so no wonder people didn't want to see it. You can't even describe it being truly horror.

Luca Guadagnino talking about the film

The Luca version was great. I thought Dakota was absolutely fantastic in this role. The Tilda multiple roles really annoyed me. She's not as great as she thinks she is. It made a great film into something bordering on boring camp for the sake of camp. The film would've been a 10/10 if they had a real old geezer playing the old man role (maybe some Oscar winner in his 90s) and not Tilda doing a bad impersonation.
I think Argento is overrated, though I've seen most of his pictures. Joan Bennet was great in Suspiria, the 70s version, but everything else fell flat aside from the interesting sets. Sergio Martino is the best giallo director but strangely not as popular at this point in time. See "The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh" for interesting giallo.

Not surprising when you remember that it was the director's follow-up to Call Me By Your Name. The new audience he'd gained wasn't interested, and Giallo has always been a cult thing anyway.

I liked the film and I think it will sadly be Luca Guadagnino's last art-y film as he's signed on to do yet another "Scarface" remake and directing a film with a script written by Seth Rogen. It was a flop at the box office, but I think there should be an asterisk next to it because it was distributed by Amazon Studios so it was released in the theaters before being released on Amazon Prime so I'm sure many felt they'd rather wait to see it with their subscription versus seeing it in limited release. Netflix doesn't release their box office numbers for their theatrical releases so they avoid this type of scrutiny. I think the only real box office success Netflix had was for "The Irishman" because each time I wanted to see it at the Egyptian in L.A, it was sold out.

The bullish woman in R7 is the once stunning Alida Valli.

The Perfume of the Lady in Black is one of my favorite Giallo films, it's very unusual and claustrophobic. I think it would work really well as a remake in a modern setting. Most of Argento's films are overrated, Suspiria included.

I preferred the original, primarily because I loved the stylishness of the art nouveau sets and the oddness by having all of the actors' voices dubbed (except the main woman) because their German accents were so thick.

Hated the new one with the bloated run time and unnecessary holocaust plot-line with old tilda.

People have been saying Argento is overrated since he first became mega-famous in Europe in the 70's. The debate continues! I think his first eight films (most people agree) are stylish masterpieces of bold weirdness, that have influenced a few generations of filmmakers in their own way. Most of his films after 1980, not so much. He is one of the most famous giallo directors, so discovery of his films often leads to a "gateway" of discovering the genre had many star directors, some better than Argento in many ways, but countless films and lesser-know directors (and sub-genres). The giallo genre is massive and all over the place. SO MANY giallo films were made in the 1960/70's and 80's. It's difficult to pick a "best."
R29 Actually, most of the actors were Italian. And this is the way most (but not every one) Italian films and television were shot back then. Shoot with no sound, then all sound and dialogue dubbed in later. It was kind of an industry standard.

[quote]Rudolf Schündler, the West German actor who played the role of Professor Milius, could not speak any English or Italian, so in the scene where he talks with Jessica Harper (Suzy) about witches, she could not understand him as he was speaking in German. Harper later quoted that she tried to keep a straight face as not to flub her lines.
[quote]In an interview, Jessica Harper said that many of the actors spoke different languages during shooting, mostly Italian and German, and it would make communicating difficult at times. However, since the film would be dubbed into English for American release, it was deemed not to be an issue during filming.
