Double Feature with HEREDITARY

2018 • dir Luca Guadagnino w/Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, Lutz Ebersdorf, Angela Winkler, Mia Goth, Elena Fokina, Sylvie Testud, Ingrid Caven • 152 min; • DCP

This stunning, bloody, horrific, and divisive reimagining of one of the most revered horror films of all time is neither entirely a remake nor a reboot. Luca Guadagnino (Call Me by Your Name) has treated the 1977 source material as something akin to a modern fairy tale – similar story structure and characters are present, but the two films differ in surprising and important ways. Plus, a trick of casting that verges on practical joke, makes this an almost entirely female cast.

Staff Pick: Cardinal, Jo – I haven’t seen it, but but it inspired a friend to get back to dancing, so it’s probably good.

“A dark fantasy shimmering with the dusty luster of the past…Suspiria holds a whispered decree: believe women. But also: don’t underestimate them.” – Natalia Winkleman, The Daily Beast

“Luca Guadagnino’s remake of Dario Argento’s 1977 cult fave is so utterly nuts I had to love it. Densely atmospheric. Thom Yorke’s music a big plus.” – James Verniere, Boston Herald

“A beautiful, resonant feminist fairy tale at least half grounded in German postwar realities.” – Anton Bitel, Little White Lies

“Guadagnino… delves into the moodiness of the horror genre with bloody aplomb.” – Tom Meek, Cambridge Day
