    ★★★★

    Felt like a sequel to the original rather than a remake. My experience of this was definitely benefitted having seen the original, at least. I loved the differences between the two, how this one unashamedly commits to its central conceit where Argento kept it more of a mystery. The dance sequences are a marvel, and Act 6 is astonishing.
