Radiohead’s Thom Yorke is set to make his film scoring debut of the upcoming remake of ‘Suspiria’. A re-imagining of Dario Argento’s 1977 giallo horror masterpiece ‘Suspiria’ was first announced back in 2008 but has only recently been finished, with filming having ended back in March. Directed by Luca Guadagnino, the remake features Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton and Chloë Grace Moretz among a cast of others and tentatively looks set to release some time this year, although when has yet to be specified. The original film was scored by cult Italian prog legends Goblin and the soundtrack remains one of the most beloved horror soundtracks of them all.

Although Yorke may initially not seem like the obvious choice to score the film, Radiohead are nothing if not capable when it comes to crafting eerie atmospheres so his score should actually work well here. Director Guadagnino has said of Yorke that “the depth of his creation and artistic vision is so unique that our ‘Suspiria’ will sound groundbreaking and will deeply resonate with viewers”; continuing that “our goal is to make a movie that will be a disturbing and transforming experience: for this ambition, we could not find a better partner than Thom”
