Luca Guadagnino’s take on Dario Argento’s Suspiria will be under a microscope when it’s officially released, but star Chloe Grace Moretz is impressed with what the film has turned into.
“This is a really big statement, but this is the closest to modern Stanley Kubrick I‘ve ever seen,” Moretz said in an interview with Indiewire.
“You’re put into a world, which I can only describe it as being like ‘The Shining’ in a lot of ways, where you’re just encompassed in a filmmaker’s brain and you’re just implanted in there, and there’s nothing like it that you will ever see.”
“That was a crazy movie to be a part of,” Moretz continued. “Here’s the thing, it’s so secretive that it’s super locked down. It’s secretive and I want it to be secretive because you guys are gonna be so shocked. It is WILD. It’s crazy. I can say this, I speak German mainly in the movie. So you won’t recognize me very well. I seem like a different person and I sound like a different person.”
The film arrives on November 2nd, and according to the synopsis:
“As a darkness builds at the center of a world-renown dance company, its artistic director (Swinton), a young American new to the troupe (Johnson), and a grieving psychotherapist (Ebersdorf) become entangled in a bloody, sighing nightmare.”
