100 Movies before we move: #36
The dancing in this was incredible. Absolutely outstanding. Costumes and sets were well utilised and had the feel of 1970’s Berlin. The story had me feeling like a confused bystander only catching parts of each plot line. Did not understand anyone’s motivation. Does make me want to see the original. 7/10.
I was not particularly interested in seeing this, but I knew Emmy would be. Horror and dancing were always going to win. It had both, and both were done very well. The story was lacking an explanation (that I believe was given in the sequels to the original). Remaking Dario Argento’s work was always going to be challenging and they did a very good job. Not easy to watch, not easy to understand, but easy to appreciate the talent that went into making it. 7/10.
