Trailer: First look at neo-giallo, 'Masks'

Giallo films were famous by Italian filmmakers such as Dario Argento and Mario Bava. Today, the subgenre is alive and kicking, as evidenced by Andreas Marschall's neo-giallo horror, Masks. This is the sophomore feature for Marschall, who also directed Tears of Kali (2004). 

Masks is about "Stella, an ambitious acting student, who’s been accepted to the mysterious Mateusz Gdula school. The founder of the school committed suicide when his very special training method got forbidden because of the deaths of several of his students in the 70s. But when strange things start to happen in the abandoned wing of the school, Stella suspects that Gdula’s method is still practiced. And she wants to participate at all costs."

Quiet Earth has scored the first trailer for Masks, which you can check out below:

Personally, I think the trailer runs on a bit too long and shows too much. And the lack of dialogue is off-putting, but that was the idea, I'm sure. The music, the atmosphere, and the story are just oozing Suspiria. Thoughts?
