Susie Bannion (Dakota Johnson) is a brilliantly talented dancer from Ohio who joins a famous Berlin dance school led by her idol Madame Blanc (Tilda Swinton in one of three roles she plays in the film). Replacing another dancer who went missing, Susie starts to suspect that there are nefarious forces at work at the school and her sanity, and life, may be at risk. Luca Guadagnino (Call Me By Your Name, LIFF 2017) takes Argento’s brash horror masterpiece and reimagines it, bringing new depth to the story while honouring the original.

'For me, making films is a natural act, and I do what I believe I need to do, so of course it is interiorized, my knowledge of [the original] film and my respect for it, but at the same time, it is a part of me and who I am that I pursue what I want…I believe that, when you do a movie, you always have to have a zone of darkness, a zone of incomprehension, in order to completely let yourself not resist the process of making your film. You have to submit to the movie happening.' Luca Guadagnino, Director.
