Thom Yorke of Radiohead has composed the score for the remake of cult-classic horror film, Suspiria. Marking his debut in composing a movie score, Yorke revealed in a recent interview with BBC Music 6 that the experience was “absolutely terrifying” and that he “watched Blade Runner twice” over a weekend for inspiration. “Normally [scoring] a horror movie involves orchestras, these specific things,” Yorke explained. “But Luca [Guadagnino], the director, and Walter [Fasano], the editor, are very much, like, find your own path with it. … I just have to find a way into it.”
Today, you can watch (and listen to) the full-length trailer for Suspiria, showing off Yorke’s first time ever doing music for a feature film. Due out November 2nd, the film’s new remake is directed by Luca Guadagnino, and stars Tilda Swinton, Dakota Johnson, Mia Goth, and Chloë Grace Moretz. Suspira is about a young American woman who travels to Berlin in 1977 to join an internationally renowned dance company and quickly finds that there might be something insidious to the mysterious disappearances of other members of the troupe.
Guadagnino noted that it was “a dream come true” to have Thom Yorke accept their offer and that their goal is “to make a move that will be a disturbing and transforming experience: for this ambition, we could not find a better partner than Thom.”
