    Jessica Harper will be appearing in the remake, for whatever that's worth.

    Allow me to be a contrarian fuck for a second: I don't see the harm in a remake and I think there's a decent chance that it could be better. Of course I'm biased and think the original is overrated and not Argento's best picture.

    Well it doesn't do any harm but it seems a particularly pointless one. Suspiria is it's look. Very hard to duplicate. Are they going to try? If it doesn't look like the original what's the point? If it apes it perfectly... again what's the point?

    Put it this way, I doubt that it will be any worse than Argento's recent output. This will need some great reviews to make me watch it though.

    Totally agree with both of these points.
    Also agree it was the style of Suspiria that elevated its rather flimsy storyline....

    I think it would be a helluva an achievement to make something worse than his Dracula picture or Card Player or Mother of Tears.

    I think that's the big problem with the film for me. It's all look. Granted, it looks fucking beautiful but that's it. Aside from the fucking amazing soundtrack and two fucking amazing murder sequences. That's all it has going for it.

    I think the Suspiria is the most overrated of all the great Italo Horror pictures.

    I remain one of the only people I know who liked the Card Player.
