Published Jul 02, 2018Luca Guadagnino's remake of horror classic Suspiria is all but guaranteed to be a hit. The film got rave reviews from Cannes, and we've been obsessing about the trailer ever since it surfaced. Apparently Guadagnino's fellow filmmakers feel the same way.
In an interview with Indiewire, Guadagnino explained that Quentin Tarantino was deeply moved by a private viewing of the film.
"I showed it to Quentin Tarantino. We've been friends since our jury duty at the Venice Film Festival. I was nervous but eager to hear his advice," Guadagnino said. "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."
Guadagnino also expanded on his intentions with the film. "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," he said. "Amazon is very happy."
Suspiria hits theatres on November 2.
