Horror Scenes That I Love: Susie Meets Helena in Dario Argento’s Suspiria


In this horror scene that I love, from Dario Argento’s Suspiria, Susie Bannion (Jessica Harper) finally meets the Mother of Sighs, Helena Markos (Lela Svasta).

To make clear, this scene is from the original Suspiria.  This isn’t from the remake or the rehash or the reboot or whatever it’s supposed to be that Film Twitter is currently going crazy over.  Don’t get me wrong.  I haven’t seen the new Suspiria yet so it could be brilliant.  It could be the best film ever made, for all I know.  But regardless, Dario Argento’s Suspiria will always be the only true Suspiria for me.

Today’s music video of the day is for another song from Thom Yorke’s soundtrack to the upcoming Suspiria remake or rehash or reboot or whatever it is.  I’m not really happy about the movie but I do like what I’ve heard of the soundtrack.

Enjoy!

4 Shots From 4 Films is just what it says it is, 4 shots from 4 of our favorite films. As opposed to the reviews and recaps that we usually post, 4 Shots From 4 Films lets the visuals do the talking.

I can’t let this October pass without paying tribute to one of my favorite directors.  It’s time for….

Music Video of the Day: Open Again by Thom Yorke (2018, dir by Ruffmercy)


Today’s music video of the world is for another song from Thom Yorke’s soundtrack for the upcoming Suspiria film.

Given how much I love Argento’s original, I’m not particularly enthusiastic about a new version, especially when so many people think that the proper way to support the new version is to denigrate the original.  Still, so far, I’m liking what I’ve score of Yorke’s score.

Enjoy!

Music Video of the Day: Has Ended by Thom Yorke (2018, dir by Ruffmercy)


Today’s music video of the day is from Thom Yorke’s soundtrack for the upcoming Suspiria remake or rehash or reboot or whatever the Hell it’s supposed to be.

I may not be particularly happy about the idea of a new version of Suspiria (especially one that apparently doesn’t involve a single Argento) but I do like what I’ve heard of the soundtrack.  Of course, nothing can improve on Claudio Simonetti’s work on the original but still….

Enjoy!

Music Video of the Day: Suspiria by Daemonia (2001, dir by ????)


Both on his own and as a member of Goblin. Claudio Simonetti has been responsible for some of the most iconic scores in the history of Italian horror cinema.  He is probably best known for Goblin’s score for Dario Argento’s Suspiria.  The minute you hear the opening of that score, you are immediately transported into Argento’s nightmarish world of witches, death, and ballet.

In 1999, Simonetti formed Daemonia, a heavy mental band that played updated version of his classic horror scores, along with new material.  In this video, they perform Suspiria and the end result is a perfect video for October!

Divertiti!
