Luca Gudagnino’s re-imagining of Dario Argento’s 1977 horror cult classic Suspiria arrives on digital Jan. 15 and Blu-ray (plus digital) Jan. 29 from Lionsgate.
Starring Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, Mia Goth and Chloë Grace Moretz, Guadagnino’s directorial follow-up to his Oscar-winning Call Me by Your Name (Best Adapted Screenplay, 2017) follows young American dancer Susie Bannion, who arrives in 1970s Berlin to audition for the world-renowned Helena Markos Dance Company and stuns the troupe’s famed choreographer, Madame Blanc. When she vaults to the role of lead dancer, Olga, the previous lead, breaks down and accuses the company’s female directors of being witches.
Special features on Blu-ray and digital include the featurettes “The Making of Suspiria,” “The Secret Language of Dance,” and “The Transformations of Suspiria.”
