Join the #BookSquad — er, #BookCoven — for a not-so-scary look at the new "Suspiria," directed by Luca Guadagnino. We talk about what worked and what didn't work (but mostly what didn't work) in this re-imagining of the 1977 film. Is the dancing good? Why is Tilda Swinton playing so many characters? And most importantly, what would "Suspiria" sound like as a Rihanna song? We answer all this and more, plus we hear some listener feedback on "Castle Rock!" Read along with us for our next #bookpisode on Celeste Ng's "Little Fires Everywhere," which drops on December 3rd. 1:00 – What would you use as a front for your secret witch coven? 3:38 – Spoiler warning and movie summary 7:20 – Is there ANYTHING we enjoyed? 15:28 – Susan’s issues with the filmmaking 20:58 – What even is going on in this movie and why was it hard to figure out? 26:54 – Turning horror into ART - Variety review: https://variety.com/2018/film/reviews/suspiria-review-dakota-johnson-1202924220/ 37:12 – Is this movie feminist?

"Suspiria" Lyrics by Emily, music by "Rihanna's people" Tilda S. plays a shrink In old man make-up We’re not sure what to think About this weird shake-up So much blood, so don’t blink How much time will this take up Feels like I'm going insane, yeah Violent dreams in the night Dead moms might drop by Dakota Johnson is a fright With that red hair dye When you dance, it’s a spell You might just fly Or break every bone in your body Throw on your sweatpants It’s time to dance with no music It’s time for witch chants Writhing can be therapeutic It’s like you’re in a trance Dancing the dance of another This isn’t vanity, it’s art! You’re watching Suspiria It's a two million hour snore Suspiria Obscure references to the war You’re watching Suspiria Prepare for nudity and gore Suspiria, Suspiria
