Podcast: Suspiria + Fantastic Beasts + The Workshop
It's a quite bewitching week of cinema; in this episode we're discussing two of the year's most talked about releases, Luca Guadagnino's remake of horror classic Suspiria and Potter spin-off sequel Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
Suspiria sees Luca Guadagnino (Call Me By Your Name) reunite with serial collaborator Tilda Swinton, to play the artistic director of a world-renowned dance company to create a bold and memorable horror from one of the most reliable auteurs in cinema today. You can watch Dario Argento’s original 1977 horror masterpiece over on Curzon Home Cinema.
Expanding JK Rowling's Wizarding World even further, the second instalment in the Fantastic Beasts series finds Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) battling notorious dark wizard Gellart Grindelwald (Johnny Depp). Newt must team up with Albus Dumbledore (now played by Jude Law) to thwart Grindelwald's plans for his pure-blood wizards to conquer the world.
Discussing the film this week are Sam Howlett, Ella Kemp and Jake Cunningham.
