Academy Award nominee Luca Guadagnino takes on one of the most controversial remakes in cinema history. This is like the equivalent of when they brought Bucky back in the comics. And one could argue, that like that, it works, but in a way we certainly never could have predicted. Taking Dario Argento’s legendary Suspiria and reinventing/reimagining it as this very different take is just plain ballsy. Even though there’s nary a ball to be seen in this female-dominated cast featuring Tilda Swinton (in multiple roles), Dakota Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, Mia Goth, Jessica Harper, and more. For all the nitty-gritty on what works and what doesn’t, listen to Chris, Ian, and Frank with their review.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
