Thom Yorke Scoring Suspiria (2017)

As the Suspiria remake finally wrapped filming and is sitting in post production, news came out that Thom Yorke from Radiohead fame is signed on to score the film. The Suspiria remake will be the first time Yorke has ever scored a film.

In a statement, director Luca Guadgnino (A Bigger Spash) said working with Yorke was “a dream come true,” adding, “Our goal is to make a movie that will be a disturbing and transforming experience: for this ambition, we could not find a better partner than Thom.”

Best known for his falsetto voice, Yorke is also a multi-instrumentalist. He plays the guitar, piano, keyboards, bass, and drums, and works extensively with synthesizers and sequencers.

Directed by Guadagnino, the screenplay for Suspiria was written by David Kajganich (The Terror). The film stars Oscar-winner Tilda Swinton (We Need to Talk About Kevin) as Madame Blanc, Dakota Johnson (Fifty Shades of Grey) as Susie Banion, Mia Goth (A Cure for Wellness) as Sara, Chloë Grace Moretz (Let Me In) as Patricia, and also starring Jessica Harper (star of the original Suspiria).

Suspiria is set in 1977 Berlin and follows a young American woman who joins a prestigious dance company. She arrives just as one of the members mysteriously disappears. As her stock in the company rises, she begins to suspect that the dance troupe is harboring a dark secret.

Horror fans absolutely adore the score from the original film, which was composed by the band Goblin. It is going to be hard not to compare the two, but I say give Thom Yorke a chance and see what he comes up with! What are your thoughts on this?
