Brief Synopsis:
I wanted to make a faster paced Noir version in black/white.
And to rescore it with German krautrock legends Tangerine Dream.
For me this remake is too long and I want the running time to be more in line with Argento's original.
And like the original I want the story to be about Susie Bannion coming to the German dance school.
The remake has more subplots about Dr.Klemperer that takes a lot of the running time and I want to keep that part shorter.
I also want to change Tom Yorke's soundtrack into Krautrock legends Tangerine Dream with focus on their Phaedra and Rubycon albums.

It's hard to overstate how well Tangerine Dream works here, especially when combined with the monochrome and slightly hazy look. The music fits exceptionally well. I found myself dialing things back and listening again. At the same time, the editor has applied this new music with a reserved hand. It's never too loud, and there are still several key scenes without any music.


I found the image was missing fine detail and grain was all but absent in spite of the file size, but the overall presentation was still quite acceptable. The audio is stereo but the bitrate is high enough to capture enough detail.


The monochrome look is certainly captivating. It's not quite black and white; more sepia. The visual presentation was at it's strongest when it was reinforced with Tangerine Dream's slightly dated sound. Absent of music it had a soft, waxy effect that was less effective. I'd be interested in seeing a version of this that was either starkly B&W with high contrast OR a with vibrant, punchy colours.

I found one flash frame during my viewing. I've sent the timestamp to the editor.

The biggest issue for me are some of the darker scenes near the end where it's very hard to tell what's going on without the benefit of the dancer's red outfit.


The new music is fantastic. It's really so much better than the original. The final dance is improved, as is the final...well, you know. Other moments that stand out are when Sara is exploring the property and when the group is voting.

I did find several very small audio issues, including some sections that were out of sync, and another that was too quiet. I've sent the editor a detailed list.


There's a lot of really interesting material in the original that's absent here, but this 90 minute presentation is a very agreeable version of the story, especially if you've already seen the original.


An early scene is still basically unwatchable (for me), but that's part of the charm. I enjoyed this presentation.

Recommended for sure.
