NO POPCORN #026 | SUSPIRIA (1977) VS SUSPIRIA (2018)
Spooky SZN is over but we can still get a little bit terrifying, right? Dave Hanratty and David Higgins return with another deep dive into the world of cinema as two iconic horrors take centre stage. In the red corner, it’s Dario Argento’s giallo classic Suspiria from 1977. In the blue corner, it’s Luca Guadagnino’s expansive, divisive reimagining of the same picture from 2018.
There’s a lot to chew on, so it’s good that we have Suspiria 2018 acolyte Daithí on board to help us through this two-hour epic. Is there a clear-cut ‘better film’ here? How about the casting, writing, direction and aesthetic of both? And in the age-old battle of Goblin vs Thom Yorke, who comes out on top?
ACT ONE: What We’ve Been Watching.
ACT TWO (30:50): Suspiria VS Suspiria.
