Luca Guadagnino’s stark 2018 remake sends us back to the saturated world of the original classic, 40 years ago, where Dario Argento first revealed the horrors behind the walls of a German ballet school. Drawing on Thomas De Quincey and channeling Edgar Allen Poe, Argento made a film whose form, editing, colors, shock and gore remains a milestone in cinemas of horror, psychological as well as visual. Restored to its full power, let the nightmare begin. Again.
