Suspiria (2018) feat. Ari Drew

Prepare your red rope costume and spread open that chest vagina because we're heading to divided Berlin in 1977 to discuss Luca Guadagnino's remake of Dario Argento's classic horror film Suspiria! Joining us for the conversation is Trace's better half Ari Drew, who is cashing in his annual guest spot ticket!

Join us as we go all in on the film's disastrous release strategy before providing a crash course on the film's historical context that absolutely enriches the dense and layered text. Then we'll offer up a plethora of different interpretations of the film's themes and plot developments.

Plus: our thoughts on Argento's original film, juicy matriarchs with baby arms, Volk, Tilda's triple threat and...lots of Disney connections (specifically Hercules and Sleeping Beauty)???
