Beauty vs Beast: Witchy Women

Jason fromMNPPhere,tackling one of my favoirte movies of all-time for this week's edition of "Beauty vs Beast"-- unless it's Halloween-time I mostly try to lean away from horror films for this series but I gotta make an exception this week,for Wednesday marks the 40th anniversary of Dario Argento's fairy-tale gialloSuspiriagetting released in Italy.I love that the movie came out just in time for Valentine's Day - with its lurid reds (not to mention a character being stabbed directly in the heart) it feels tremulously appropriate for the season.

It's also a timely moment to celebrate the movie because as you might've heardA Bigger SplashandI Am Lovedirector Luca Guadagnino is currently right this minute in theprocess of remaking the film,with a starry cast including Tilda Swinton and Dakota Johnson and Chloe Grace Moretz.Oh and Jessica Harper,the star of the original film,will appear as well!If only Joan Bennett & Alida Valli,the wickedly cruel mistresses of the dance academy,were still around for cameos...

PREVIOUSLYOne week ago we were still holding out hope for the hopeless,aka a ton of surprise Oscar nominations for Yorgos Lanthimos'The Lobster.But we're happy it got that one nomination at least,and that we got togive love to its two key supporting men- and of the two Ben Whishaw kicked John C.Reilly square in the chin,taking 70% of your vote.And I gotta go with whatNathanielhad to say:

"Team John always.I admire the committment,injuring himself for love.or rather "love""

As much as I like Jessica Harper come on the leaders of the coven are Alida Valli and the mistress of Dark Shadows herself-freaking Joan Bennett!!You just can't compete with that.

God,I loveSuspiriaso much.In college,I presented the opening scene as a showcase for an assignment revolving around the visual and aural elements of a film blending well.That score and those colors?YES PLEASE.

Side note: Hate that Chloe Grace Moretz is in the remake.Can't handle her.

I gotta go with Suzy.Suzy defeated the coven with nothing but her brave,insatiable curiosity,and her beautiful wide eyes.Yeah,Suzy!She was badass at her core.

aren't you required to side with the villain in genre movies because they're more fun?I'm voting coven

I feel like the race should be a close one.But in light of recent events,I think many might feel urged to vote against an evil establishment with control issues.I'm voiting for Suzy.
