Dario Argento Says Suspiria Remake Betrayed the Spirit of the Original

by Luca Guadagnino & # 39; s Suspiria from 1945 to the end of last year and has received mixed reviews from critics and the public. Dario Argento, the director of the original 1977, did not like the remake at all and he does not mince words to express his feelings. Guadagnino took a different approach from the classic horror and made it his own, preferring to call an adaptation rather than a remake. Whatever his bold choices, Argento is not a fan of what Guadagnino has done.

According to Dario Argento, Luca Guadagnino is "a person of friendship". He also says that "Guadagnino makes beautiful tables, beautiful curtains, beautiful dishes, all beautiful …" But he is really not in what the director did with Suspiria . However, Argento said the film had been "refined", which seems to be the only compliment he had for the film. He had this to say.

"That did not inspire me, it betrayed the spirit of the original film: there is no fear, there is no music The film did not satisfy me so much. "

Luca Guadagnino made many difficult decisions to create his own version of Suspiria which included the suppression of Goblin & # 39; s. original score, on which Dario Argento worked closely with the band. Argento asked the band to do the music while filming and making scenes while broadcasting unfinished recordings on the set during filming. The result is a pretty amazing collaboration that has helped to elevate the film and the music. The score of Goblin Suspiria is a progressive rock masterpiece noted, so that some fans were thrown into a loop when Guadagnino has brought Thom Yorke of Radiohead to create a whole new score that had nothing to do with the original.

The first reactions of Suspiria had people who were looking to leave the screen and panting d & rsquo; # 39; horror. These are precisely the types of reactions you want to make public before a horror movie arrives in theaters. However, once the shock passed, critics and the public were not sure how to interpret the remake. It is only now, a few months after its theatrical release that horror fans are beginning to appreciate and appreciate what Luca Guadagnino has done in realizing it.

As an adaptation of the Dario Argento Suspiria of the new version tends to look better. The bright colors of Argento have almost disappeared and the mood is completely different without Goblin's iconic score, but Thom Yorke has also done a great job creating his own project. His album is isolated and is really great for the first time that he takes the time to film. Whatever the case may be, there will always be people who are not at the last Suspiria and Argento is firmly in this camp. The interview of Dario Argento was performed for the first time by The Film Stage.
