I watched Suspiria (1977) on Tuesday night, and saw this late last night. I hadn't seen the original in years, and while I always loved it, I appreciate it more and more with every watch. It may be the best horror of all time to me, at least best intro. The remake, I am impressed by, but less sure of, in regards to how much I like it. There is a lot of indulgence, and it goes over the top in a few fairly jarring ways, the Berlin wall, and esp. the Holocaust references were heavy handed, the length was excessive, and scenes dragged for me. The acting, the direction, the music, the settings, the real "horror" scenes are masterful. I appreciated the subtle nods to the original, and at times wanted it to follow it more closely, but truly visionary directors would see no value in that. I did want a modern take on the rained drenched Black Forest, and the Taxi driver to the Coven. The music was effective too, for the most part. The themes of feminism and empowerment, oppression and division were muddled, but I appreciated the messages, though it is for sure a twisted one, to put it mildly. Some scenes are truly disturbing and hard to watch, as were the originals. By the end though, I was ready to leave, and the last part really sent me out on a critical note. The post script was not needed and entirely too much (Holocaust reference? Why?) Note: I get migraines, and came down with one, early in the movie, so some aspects were affected by this, but not much, I don't think.
