With industrial snares and stoned, droning vocals, Has Ended, the second single from the soundtrack to "Suspiria" dropped by Yorke ahead of the film's release on October 23, paints a psychedelic horrorscape with greater allure - some critics (presumably) declare - than the film itself.

Luca Guadagnino’s remake of the Dario Argento classic, Suspiria, has been anticipated by film geeks since rumours of its reimagining first surfaced at the Venice Film Festival in 2015. Appropriately, this also became the chosen location for the film's own premiere at the same festival this past September, where it reportedly drew an eight-minute standing ovation as the credits rolled out.
No one cares, though.
While critical reviews seem split on the status of the film as it relates to its predecessor and horror films generally, the real enthusiasm for the film has been in every way heightened because of the man tasked with composing the score for the film. Radiohead frontman, Thom Yorke, who originally declined the job, has taken the task to heart and orchestrated a 25-track score to this modern classic.
In this second single, Thom successfully creeps me out. Watch it below or wait for the international release of "Suspiria" sometime later this month.
