The Horror Remake (Susperia)



My Google + friend Scott Napier commented on the new "Susperia" trailer and voiced his apprehension. And every film fan has a right to be a little worried about the remake of a great film.
The film in question is the original 1977 Dario Argento classic, "Susperia," a masterwork of visual horror. The new film, starring Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, and Chloe Grace Moretz.
I can completely understand as a fan of film how attached I can be towards a film or a franchise. But when this topic comes up I always bring up my favorite Hammer Studio films. "Curse Of Frankenstein" starring the legendary duo of Sir Christopher Lee and the great Peter Cushing, was a remake of the masterpiece from Universal Studios, "Frankenstein," starring Boris Karloff. It held it's own as an adaptation of the immortal novel by Mary Shelley and stood out as it's own film as well. Following that up was "Horror Of Dracula," starring the same legendary duo. In my opinion, it's BETTER than the Bela Lugosi film, but that's up to the viewer.
So for whatever fear we have of a potential butchering of a classic film, remember that horror has a history of making classic remakes of classic films. That is why I love this genre so much.
