Even though we might hesitate to praise Hollywood's decision to roll out its remake train for another iconic movie, you'll never hear us complaining because it will mean we will be blessed with the presence of Oscar-winner Tilda Swinton appearing on the big screen as a man.
1977 Italian horror flick #Suspiria — directed by Dario Argento — is heading for a modern interpretation and quite frankly, seeing the actress as an elderly member of the opposite sex will probably end up being one of 2017's best gifts to us all. Here's the trailer for the original:
Starring alongside Dakota Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz and Mia Goth, the plot will once again focus on an American ballet dancer who transfers to a German dance academy only to realize that it's a mere front for some rather sinister goings on.
Dressing as a man in the Suspiria remake, Tilda Swinton is allegedly playing Madame Blanc, donning a ton of special effects make-up to give her deep wrinkles and droopy skin in the process. And if you're wondering what that bizarre concoction might look like, thankfully some images have emerged:
Essentially, Tilda looks like she's been chewed up into tiny, mushy little pieces and violently regurgitated to loosely resemble a human being — the dedication that this woman puts into her on-screen characters is absolutely phenomenal.

Admittedly however, this isn't the first time that Tilda Swinton has shown herself to be quite the professional chameleon — for example, I basically had to prod my eyes back into their sockets when I realized that was actually her in Amy Schumer's Trainwreck:
In addition to this, the 56-year-old actress has also gone bald for her role of a Tibetan mystic in Doctor Strange, rocked the elderly official look in Snowpiercer and piled on the liver-spots for Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel. Ultimately, she continues to prove time and time again that she's a true industry genius!
On a scale of 1 to 10, how excited are you to see Tilda Swinton as an elderly man?
