Amazon announced today that Luca Guadagnino’s remake of Suspiria, which was produced under the Amazon Studios banner, will come to its streaming video platform this May.
After an extremely limited theatrical release, the film eventually made its way on to Blu-ray and digital, but was naturally held back from Amazon Prime Video for a few months following that physical release. The good news is that Suspiria will finally be available for streaming on May 3rd, 2019! The film is not expected to be available on any other platforms other than Prime Video for the foreseeable future.
In Suspiria, evil lurks deep within a world-renowned dance company in Germany. Susie Bannion, an ambitious young dancer, travels there to perfect her dance skills but soon learns something is amiss following her arrival. The dance troupe’s artistic director, Madame Blanc, is an enigmatic woman committed fully to the art of dance and becomes fixated on Bannion for her own mysterious reasons.
After fellow students begin disappearing, Bannion attempts to unravel the mysteries that whisper beneath the surface with the help of her new friend Sara and grieving psychologist Jozef Klemperer. However, what they find unleashes a relentless nightmare that may have been better left stowed away in secrecy.
Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria is a remake of a 1977 film of the same name by Dario Argento (Deep Red, Phenomena). This new version stars Dakota Johnson (Fifty Shades series) as Susie Bannion, Chloë Grace Moretz (Carrie, Let Me In) as Patricia Hingle, Tilda Swinton (Doctor Strange) in three roles as Madame Blanc, Dr. Jozek Klemperer, and Helena Markos, Mia Goth as Sara, and Renée Soutendijk as Miss Huller.
Suspiria will be released for streaming on Amazon Prime Video on May 3rd, but the film is available now on home video. If you don't want to wait for May, head on over to Amazon and grab up your copy today.
