The 1977 Italian horror film Suspiria has been considered one of the scariest films ever made, and it’s getting remade.

Dario Argento directed the original story of Susie, an American ballet student who goes to study dance in Germany, and soon discovers that her new ballet school has some terrifying secrets.

This time around, Italian filmmaker Luca Guadagnino (Call Me By Your Name) will take on the film with Dakota Johnson (50 Shades of Grey) tackling the role of Susie. Other cast members include Tilda Swinton who plays the creepy ballet teacher, Madame Blanc, and Chloë Grace Moretz who plays another ballerina. The original Susie, Jessica Harper will make a cameo as well.

Radiohead’s Thom Yorke composed the score for this film. Suspiria is his first motion picture score composition.

This film promises to scare you.  During a screening on a sort clip, many viewers turned away from the screen and Dakota Johnson has said that working on the film forced her to go to therapy. Take a look at the trailer below.

Suspiria spins into theaters November 2nd.
