I didn’t know anything about the original movie except that it existed. Coming in blind was probably a good way to experience coming in to watch the new version of Suspiria by Luca Guadagnino.
Because I was so amazed and overwhelmed and shocked and riveted by this amazing work of filmmaking. Aside from the story and how it doesn’t even try to explain itself.
And the filmmaking! The direction! The performances! The music and sound design! I can put as many exclamation marks and it wouldn’t be enough.

As horror films go, this is really one of the best I’ve seen. It’s a mind-fuck and in a good way and, yes, it’s gory and creepy and full of tension, but it’s what I want from something like this.
And its depiction of witches is just incredible.
