Suspiria Review

We’ve long-since moved past the belief that all remakes, horror remakes in particular, are inherently bad. From John Carpenter’s The Thing to David Cronenberg’s The Fly and even as recently as Fede Alvarez’s take on The Evil Dead, the horror remake is wide open in terms of quality and sense of purpose.
