Disturbing New 'Suspiria' Trailer Has Fans Questioning If Tilda Swinton Is Lutz Ebersdorf

Carter Lee

After months of anticipation, horror fans can finally celebrate, because the full-length trailer for Suspiria is finally here. When the teaser trailer for the film was released in early June, many fans felt that Suspiria looked to be one of the scariest horror movies of the last several years, and the disturbing new trailer certainly supports that theory. As the Inquisitr reported, while Luca Guadagnino's Suspiria will pay homage to Dario Argento's famed 1977 horror film, the new movie is not a remake, but rather, a reimagined story.

Suspiria tells the tale of Susie Bannion, a young dancer who is accepted into the Markos Dance Academy in Berlin, a world-renowned school. A darkness surrounds the dance school, as it is run by a coven of witches. Evil will engulf Susie, artistic director Madame Blanc, and Dr. Jozef Klemperer.

Some fans feel that the trailer for Luca's reimagined story is scarier than many feature-length horror movies. The Suspiria trailer shows a litany of disturbing imagery, and fans of the original horror film will certainly recognize some of the references and images, like the Three Mothers. Dario Argento's Suspiria was the first film in his Three Mothers trilogy (which also included Inferno and The Mother of Tears), and the Three Mothers are a trio of witches who use dark magic to manipulate the world. The mysterious, creepy hook that has fans going nuts also makes an appearance in the trailer, and as expected, it doesn't look like it's used for anything good.

Warning: The Suspiria trailer contains some graphic and disturbing imagery.

"Ebersdorf's IMDb page is the only substantial piece of information about him that comes up when you Google his name. The actor has no agents listed on his IMDb profile, and his biography includes the note that it was written by Ebserdorf himself. In an intriguing twist, the UK tabloid 'Mirror' credited Swinton as playing a character named Lutz Ebersdorf at the time. It wasn't until almost a year later that actor Ebersdorf entered the fold."
