The Dakota Johnson led horror isn’t due to hit cinemas for another four months, but the Once Upon A Time in Hollywood director has already seen it.
Speaking with La Repubblica, Luca revealed he showed his Suspiria remake to Tarantino last autumn.
And it turns out the filmmaker best known for his aestheticisation of violence had a very strong response to the film after a private screening.
Luca said: “I showed it to Quentin Tarantino. We’ve been friends since our jury duty at the Venice Film Festival.”
The filmmaker continued: “I was nervous but eager to hear his advice.
“We saw it at his place and his reaction warmed me.
“He was enthusiastic about it, in the end he was crying and hugged me.
“Because it’s a horror movie but also a melodrama, my goal was to make you look at the horror without being able to take [your eyes off the screen] because you’re captivated by the characters. Amazon is very happy.”
“It’s one of the most f**ked up things I’ve ever seen at #CinemaCon,” Collider’s Steven Weintraub tweeted.
“People at my table turned away from the screen. All I can say is it’s beyond extreme and gross and I need to see more.”
Peter Sciretta posted: “First clip from Suspiria invokes a dancer being thrown around like a rag doll telekinetically in a mirrored rehearsal space, bones breaking, becoming a contorted mess.
“Very gruesome and hard to watch. This film will make most people feel uneasy. #CinemaCon.”
Suspiria is set for release in November this year.
