The teaser trailer, unveiled Monday, indicates that at least one of the dancers has gone missing and concludes with shot of an ominous metal hook on a table.
Dario Argento's Suspiria-the 1977 Italian supernatural horror movie-was about an American ballet student who transfers to a bourgie academy in Germany, and amid a string of brutal murders, discovers that the academy is merely a front for some supernatural cabal.
Starring Dakota Johnson as a dancer who joins a "world-renowned dance company" overseas and Tilda Swinton as the mysterious artistic director in charge, the first footage only hints at the unsavory business happening below the surface. Handling music duties for the reboot is Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke, with the trailer's music establishing a ethereally unsettling mood.
Dakota Johnson plays the aspiring dancer Susie Bannion and Tilda Swinton plays her teacher Madame Blanc, while Chloë Grace Moretz, Mia Goth, and original Suspiria star Jessica Harper round out the cast. While some will succumb to the darkness that looms around the organization, others will finally wake up. The film marks a reunion between Guadagnino and Johnson after A Bigger Splash. It was directed by Luca Guadagnino from a script by David Kajganich.
