Luca Guadagnino received a lot of plaudits last year for his directorial work on Call Me By Your Name which went on to get nominated for Best Picture at the 2018 Oscars. He has a new film coming out very soon called Suspiria which is a remake of the 1977 movie of the same name. There is a lot of anticipation for this remake, especially from those who are fans of the horror genre. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Luca Guadagnino talked about the disturbing nature of Suspiria.
This is what he had to say about this topic:
“I hope that the movie comes across as a relentless experience that’s going to go deep into your skin all the way down into your spine. I want the movie to perform as the most disturbing experience you can have. The movie is about being immersed in a world of turmoil and uncompromising darkness.”
Luca Guadagnino also spoke about witchcraft which is a key component of the film:
“I think a coven of witches comes with the concept of solidarity. If we take the historical sense of the term witchcraft, from the inquisition until the enlightenment, it was about a scandal of the bond between women in a moment in time when society couldn’t accept that.”
“So, historically, witchcraft came with the idea of coming back to the power of women, the power of the woman as a goddess, and it has been perverted by the official history and the official religions as making a bargain with the devil.”
“The witchcraft that I’m interested in also has a lot to do with what, psychoanalytically, is called the concept of the terrible mother, which you can see also in some religions, particularly in the Kali goddess.”
