Following a teaser issued in June, a full-length trailer has now been released featuring music from Yorke. You can watch it below.
The original Suspiria, soundtracked by Italian psych masters Goblin, is one of the biggest cult classics of the ’70s, known for incredible art direction and intense supernatural horror.
The unsettling strings and sinister piano fits in well with the eerie vibe of the film, which tells the story of witchcraft and murder behind closed doors in a prestigious German ballet company. Led by Tilda Swinton, Dakota Johnson and Chloe Grace Moretz also play troubled dancers.
The Suspiria soundtrack marks the first time the Radiohead frontman has ever scored a film. In a recent interview with BBC Music 6, Yorke said that the experience was “absolutely terrifying,” revealing that he “watched Blade Runner twice” over a weekend to look for inspiration.
“Normally [scoring] a horror movie involves orchestras, these specific things,” he said. “But Luca [Guadagnino], the director, and Walter [Fasano], the editor, are very much, like, find your own path with it. … I just have to find a way into it.”
Suspiria is out November 2. Thom Yorke’s North American solo tour, which includes two sold-out Kings Theatre shows in Brooklyn, starts in November as well.
Here is the trailer for the original, too, for good measure:
