Moretz: SUSPIRIA Remake is Like “Modern Stanley Kubrick”

Chloë Grace Moretz

Director Luca Guadagnino’s upcoming remake of Dario Argento’s Suspiria recently snagged an R-rating for “disturbing content involving ritualistic violence, bloody images, and graphic nudity, and for some language including sexual references.”

And if that wasn’t enough to get you onboard with the film, then maybe today’s comments via co-star Chloë Grace Moretz, will do the trick.

This is a really big statement, but this is the closest to modern Stanley Kubrick I‘ve ever seen,” Moretz told IndieWire. “You’re put into a world, which I can only describe it as being like ‘The Shining’ in a lot of ways, where you’re just encompassed in a filmmaker’s brain and you’re just implanted in there, and there’s nothing like it that you will ever see.”
