Director Luca Guadagnino on his over-the-top remake of ‘Suspiria’

Hosted by

Luca Guadagnino’s last film, “Call Me By Your Name,” was a gay love story set in a small Italian town in the summer. It was nominated for Best Picture last year. Guadagnino followed up with “Suspiria,” a remake of the 1970s cult horror film. His remake and the original are both about a young American who discovers supernatural goings-on at her dance studio in Germany. But Guadagnino added a lot more. His version stars Tilda Swinton as the head of the dance company, with Dakota Johnson as the young American dancer new to the troupe.
