New York, NY (October 30, 2018) – Luca Guagadnino’s remake of the 1977 Dario Argento cult classic Suspiria just set a 2018 box office record for best opening per theater before it goes wide this coming weekend. The update, which stars Tilda Swinton, Dakota Johnson, Mia Goth and Chloë Moretz, is set at a prestigious dance academy, and, as in the original, involves grisly murders and the supernatural. But for genre fans interested in screening Argento’s version “considered by many to be one of the all-time best horror films,” the OTT platform MIDNIGHT PULP has horror fans covered – for FREE.
Offering an expertly-curated selection of horror, thriller and cult programming, MIDNIGHT PULP is one of the few streaming outlets online offering the original SUSPIRIA, guaranteed to put an extra chill into this spooky season. In addition to this supernatural classic, MIDNIGHT PULP also offers a coven’s worth of Italian horror classics in the GIALLO collection, featuring the best of the Italian horror genre from notable directors like Argento, Mario Bava and Luciano Onetti, and viewers can choose to view on a no-charge freemium model or with an ad-free premium subscription starting at $4.99.
