Flashdance meets Poltergeist in Suspiria, the new dance school horror which premiered this week at the Venice Film Festival.
Dakota Johnson plays an American student who encounters a villain, Tilda Swinton, who can track her every weakness. It’s no typical Freddy Kruger, though, it’s an intellectual kind seduction into darkness.

The strangest part?
As the film is set during the chilly Cold War—and a Berlin winter, which is its own kind of hell—a Stasi-style paranoia steps off the screen, too. The hero of the film is a psychoanalyst named Dr. Jozef Klemperer (played by Lutz Ebersdorf), who is set to debunk supernatural activity.

But there is a rumor that Swinton is dressed in prosthetics as Dr. Klemperer in the film, her 82-year-old alterego which she refuse to admit publicly.
At the film’s press conference, she refused to talk about playing the two roles when asked. “Two roles?” she asked. “As you’ll see in the credits and all the posters, its Lutz Ebersdorf.”
