Thom Yorke Drops Another Track From His Suspiria Score

Yorke, whose work on Suspiria has garnered early awards buzz, spoke with The Hollywood Reporter while in Venice ahead of the film’s world premiere, and admitted he felt a tad overwhelmed at the idea of remaking one of the most acclaimed horror soundtracks of all time — the original Suspiria soundtrack by Italian rock group Goblin.
“I referred to the original ‘Suspiria’ film,” explained Yorke. “It was an odd process from the beginning. When they first came to see me, the producers and [editor] Walter [Fasano], I just thought they were mad, because I’ve never done a soundtrack before. And ‘Suspiria’ is one of those legendary soundtracks. It took a few months to even contemplate the idea.”
Despite his reservations, Yorke eventually agreed to do the film, but opted to go in an entirely different direction with his take.
In the film, a darkness swirls at the center of a world-renowned dance company, one that will engulf the troupe’s artistic director, an ambitious young dancer, and a grieving psychotherapist. Some will succumb to the nightmare. Others will finally wake up.
The cast includes Tilda Swinton (We Need to Talk About Kevin, Doctor Strange), Dakota Johnson (Fifty Shades of Grey, How To Be Single), Chloë Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass, The Miseducation of Cameron Post), Mia Goth (A Cure for Wellness, Everest) and Jessica Harper of the original Suspiria.
Call Me by Your Name director Luca Guadagnino steps behind the camera for the remake of Dario Argento’s 1977 classic which features a script by David Kajganich (A Bigger Splash, The Terror). The horror film will have its world premiere at 75th Venice International Film Festival.
It will officially debut in theaters on November 2.
