Luca Guadagnino says Suspiria remake is a teenage dream

I have said it before and I will say it again, I am not against remakes. Take for instance THE FLY. The original film will never be replaced so why not see another filmmaker's vision of a classic film?

Case in point, director Luca Guadanino is putting the finishing touches on his remake of Dario Argento's SUSPIRIA and I'm excited to see what the man comes up with. Sue me.

And speaking of Guadagnino, his new flick CALL ME BY YOUR NAME has been getting all kinds of love and he was recently interviewed by The Guardian, where he talked a bit about his upcoming remake.

Luca Guadagnino on SUSPIRIA:

Every movie I make is a step inside my teenage dreams, and Suspiria is the most remarkably precise teenage megalomaniac dream I could have had. I saw the poster when I was 11 and then I saw the film when I was 14, and it hit me hard. I immediately started to dream about making my own version of it. So in a way it makes me smile when I hear people say, “How dare you remake Suspiria. Typical commerce-driven mentality.” I was just a boy who had seen a movie that made him what he became. So that’s how I am approaching it: a homage to the incredible, powerful emotion I felt when I saw it.

Again, I say fair enough. I'll still own the original Argento classic on VHS, DVD, and Blu-ray so as long as Guadagnino doesn't come to my house and steal those, I'll be fine with whatever he does with his take.
