  • Karl Delossantos @ Smash Cut Reviews
    • Excerpt: Suspiria, a remake of the 1977 classic, gets an upgrade in plot and horror.
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: Despite having so much to admire in the filmmaking here, which is exceptional on practically all fronts, I came out wishing I enjoyed it more.
  • Courtney Howard @ FreshFiction.tv
    • Excerpt: Guaranteed to divide audiences, this iteration is gleaming, gorgeous and gory.
  • [New] | Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: In form and style, “Suspiria” is distinctly its own beast, one that unsettles, sears into the recesses, and leaves one staggering out of the cinema two and a half hours later in a daze but ready to unpack all of it post-haste.
  • [New] | Wesley Lovell @ Cinema Sight
    • Excerpt: In horror history, there are a handful of films that can lay claim to being massively influential and a handful that elevated the medium to the level of art. Dario Argento’s 1977 masterpiece “Suspiria” was one of the latter. Going into the 2018 version of the film of the same name is fraught with peril. Can it compare? Should it compare? Knowing the intention behind the director’s vision is as important to that assessment of the film as is knowing the original.
  • Jared Mobarak @ BuffaloVibe
    • Excerpt: It’s as though Kajganich wanted to shake any style over substance gripes so vehemently that he overcompensated by putting in too much substance.
  • Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
    • Excerpt: For all the bizarre art-house horror qualities that will no doubt earn this film the high-water achievement of an “F” Cinemascore, Guadagnino doesn’t shy away from the grindhouse sensibilities of auteurs from the 70s.
  • Eddie Pasa @ DC Filmdom
    • Excerpt: Suspiria is grounded, real-world horror film, moving the 1977 original into a place where there is no light or savior; there is only unavoidable darkness.
  • Diego Salgado @ Guía del Ocio [Spanish]
  • Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies
    • Excerpt: The many subplots make for a horror film that’s overlong at two-and-a-half hours, but when it’s at its best, it has moments of witchy intensity that match [the original].
