The Suspiria remake from Amazon Studios has wrapped production

Dario Argento's giallo/fairy-tale classic SUSPIRIA was released into Italian theaters on this day back in 1977. I guess it only stands to reason that today would be the day that news of the film's remake wrapping production would hit... While it is pretty cool to know the masterpiece was released today, the news of the remake has me a bit underwhelmed. I'm not against...

Dario Argento classic Phenomena gets limited edition collector's steelbook

I am a big Dario Argento fan. Aren't we all? But, seriously, I have limited-deluxe-special unicorn-Kevlar lead-box editions of SUSPIRIA  and DEEP RED . And while I am in the slight minority in thinking Argneto's DEEP RED is his masterpiece, that does NOT mean I do not think SUSPIRIA isn't a masterpiece in it's own right. Not bad having TWO masterpieces, huh,...

Demons star Geretta Giancarlo is writing a Demons homage

One of my favorite Italian horror movies is the 1985 Lamberto Bava/Dario Argento collaboration DEMONS , in which a violent horror movie exerts a malevolent influence over theatre patrons, who are transformed one by bloody one into a horde of crazed demons. DEMONS 2 , which moved the setting to a demon-infested apartment building, is also pretty cool, but the first...

Suspiria to dance into a 4K restoration for its 40th anniversary

As if to make up for the fact that a remake  is currently in production, SUSPIRIA is the latest in a long line of classic horror titles to get a 4K restoration. Dario Argento's hallucinatory 1977 gem has been painstakingly remastered by the German TLEFilms and will be released by Videa and QMI, who will be running their restoration in Italian theaters...

Jessica Harper to return for the Suspiria remake!

Although Dario Argento's 1977 classic SUSPIRIA might be divisive, as proven by one of this year's Unseen Halloween entries, we take the idea of the remake of the flick very seriously. Not just anyone can do justice to this project, but we know somebody who can: Jessica Harper, who starred in the original as wide-eyed ballerina Suzy Bannion. It has just been...

Suspiria (Unseen Halloween Returns Review)

Trick 'r treat! And welcome back to a new take on an old Halloween-centric feature! Last year, our Arrow in the Head staff recommended some obscure fright flicks throughout the month of October to fill your Halloween season with some possible new, first-time viewings (See previous entries HERE )! However, the twist with this year's UNSEEN HALLOWEEN is that the Arrow in the Head...

Dario Argento's Phenomena is getting a collector's edition steelbook release

Several of Italian master of horror Dario Argento's other films get a lot more attention and praise, but his 1985 film PHENOMENA may well be my favorite of his works, so I'm glad to see that it's getting the special edition treatment from Synapse Films, and they have definitely seized the opportunity to put together a very impressive release for it. Starring...

Suspiria remake cast confirmed: Swinton! Johnson! Moretz!

Did remakes ever go away, or did I just start noticing them again this year? Following this year's frustrating controversies around remaking GHOSTBUSTERS and  MARTYRS , Hollywood had to go ahead and get that long-dreaded  SUSPIRIA remake off the ground. The rumors were true : The film, which Luca Guadagnino is helming for Frenesy Film Company and...

It's the Booze Talkin': Don't remake Dario Argento's Suspiria!

Do you remember your first experiences with certain directors? I certainly do. And one that I’ll never forget is the magic of SUSPIRIA from legendary Dario Argento. It was a late night and I decided to rent the film as I had only heard stories about it. While the plot is more than a bit strange - ridiculous perhaps - the fact is the movie really is a masterpiece of atmosphere, set...

Dario Argento doesn't think Suspiria should be remade

We have been following the development of a remake of the Dario Argento classic SUSPIRIA over the course of many years and through many ups and downs. At one point set to be directed by David Gordon Green, the remake now has Italian filmmaker Luca Guadagnino attached to direct, with Dakota Johnson and Tilda Swinton possibly signed on to star. Quotes from Guadagnino have...

Could a 3D Demons remake be possible?

The 1985 Italian horror flick DEMONS (AKA DEMONI) is a bona fide cult classic and has spawned one official sequel and a legion of unofficial name-only follow-ups (including, notably, CEMETERY MAN , which was also released as DEMONS '95, the seventh film to go by the DEMONS name). However, one thing that it still doesn't have is a remake, something that many horror fans...
