Prepare to shit your pants while listening to some eerie Thom Yorke jams, as the Radiohead frontman signs on to a remake of cult classic Suspiria.

The Radiohead frontman has been announced as the composer of Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria. A remake of Dario Argento’s 1977 Italian horror cult classic, Guadagnino’s forthcoming adaptation stars Tilda Swinton, Dakota Johnson, Mia Goth, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Lutz Ebersdorf.

In the film, Johnson plays a young American ballerina named Susie Bannion, who “travels to the prestigious Markos Tanz Company in Berlin in the year 1977. She arrives just as one of the Company’s members, Patricia (played by Moretz), has disappeared under mysterious circumstances. As Susie makes extraordinary progress under the guidance of Madame Blanc (Swinton), the Company’s revolutionary artistic director, she befriends another dancer, Sara (Goth), who shares her suspicions that the Matrons, and the Company itself, may be harbouring a dark and menacing secret.”

Yorke definitely has a tall task ahead of him. The soundtrack for the original Suspiria was composed by Italian prog rock band Goblin, and is widely considered a masterpiece. – Consequence of Sound
