    Let it be recorded that I also agree with what what DVD-fanatic-9 said.

    What we are most likely to get with this remake is a film that tries improved on the acting and effects with a CGI Bat and everything the haters can't get over. The consequence of this will most likely be a film that fails to capture what made the film Brilliant in the first place. The atmosphere, the music, the visuals and it's tone, you just easily can't duplicate that. I doubt even Argento himself could. Suspira is simply a unique nightmarish masterpiece.

    I think I've said something before about being confident in Green's ability to tell stories. But when it comes to horror, yes some directors were able to deliver great, memorable films even if they had no experience in the genre (Rob Reiner, Jonathan Demme, Robert Zemeckis). But directors of this calibre just don't do horror anymore. And if they did, it was hampered by CGI (Peter Jackson, Stephen Frears).

    But for me... remakes that are better than even most other remakes, that standard just isn't good enough to warrant this remake. I was very excited to see what this remake could bring to the table. But I've also got to say- it's just too late to remain optimistic. Even about a project that a serious director is attached to. We've had too many abominations, too many untouchable films have been touched, too many good films have been questioned... And now, the entire possibility for a director to come along and really do something different is nil.

    Even if DGG could make it happen, he would run into studio and marketing interference so many times- he would seriously regret even trying. And, am I thinking of someone else on some other remake...or was he quoted as saying Suspiria isn't a great movie?

    Is it bad that I somehow think that Green will still do a better job than Argento if he wanted to remake his own film today?

    No. Everyone falls at the same speed. Even the mighty.

  9. I watched Suspiria again last night and I'm really interested in remake. I hope at least the acting is going to be better than the original :D

    Hmmm, yeah...
    And you won't if you post things like that!!!









    ;) Welcome to the boards vicar!


    Please elaborate some more. Why do you think the acting in Suspiria isn't good enough? Sometimes the dubbing can have that effect. Still I think the acting is fine.


    About the remake: I will watch it out of morbid curiosity.

    I think this remake is just as pointless as any of the others. That said, I've enjoyed a couple of them, so I might enjoy this one as well. It will be interesting to watch, anyway. Here's hoping I'll be able to convince Argento to let me remake 'Opera' in, say, 5 years. :D

    They should not be messing with this movie...

    Just the soundtrack alone will be impossible to re-create.

    As soon as I saw the new thread about, I immediately starting thinking about my doubts about this guy directing. Then satans-sadists gave the link to this old thread and I totally don't remember posting the above almost exactly 4 years ago but, my feelings about this remake haven't changed.

    Though now the stakes are even higher for Green, because any remake of this film will probably be compared Black Swan.

    Agreed. I like the movie and everything but can't say I love it. Saw it in theatres, but haven't had the urge to watch my Blu Ray that I picked up months ago.
