Suspiria: The horror film that made audiences retch and sent the star to therapy

As if the world wasn't scary enough, along comes another movie promising to be one of the most horrifying and disturbing films of the year - Suspiria.

Call Me By Your Name director Luca Guadagnino has remade the 1977 flick, replete with grisly new details so stomach-churning, they had a room full of critics struggling not to vomit.

In fact, even filming the story of an American dancer who joins a German ballet school was so psychologically distressing it forced lead actor Dakota Johnson to seek counselling. 

"No lie, [it] f**ked me up so much that I had to go to therapy," she told Elle magazine.

When a particularly graphic clip of the movie was screened at CinemaCon in Las Vegas earlier this year, critics took to social media to share their reactions to the gore.

"I had to look away but it wasn't enough. The sound effects alone will haunt me for the rest of my life," one tweet read.

"Bones cracking, skin ripping. I literally feel sick."

One critic described how he was "close to upchucking" his lunch, while another labelled the scene "one of the most f**cked up things I've ever seen".

The newly released cinematic trailer doesn't show much of the clip in question, in which a dancer is slowly "torn apart" into a pile of bones and body tissue by supernatural forces, but it's still chock-a-block with the stuff of nightmares.

I'll level with you: I watched the video half under my desk, between my fingers, with no sound - which is a real shame, seeing as I missed the score composed by Radiohead's Tom Yorke - but I'm a total wuss.

If you think you take handle it, please, be my guest, watch away - but maybe do so on an empty stomach.
