On VOD and in theaters now is Peter Strickland's BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO, which looks to be an unnerving slow-burn chiller that will get under our skin. I've yet to check it out myself, and truth be told I've heard mixed reactions, but I plan on peeping it soon enough just to see what all the fuss is about.
Today we have a new alternate poster for the flick which is just as eye-catching as the one we shared with you last month. If nothing else, I can say that BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO has delivered some truly badass art our way and I'm very curious to see if the film itself is as unnerving as some of the posters we've seen for the film. Peep the new alternate poster below.
Berberian Sound Studio is one of the cheapest, sleaziest post-production studios in Italy. Only the most sordid horror films have their sound processed and sharpened in this studio. Gilderoy (Toby Jones), a shy and nondescript sound engineer from the UK is hired to mix the latest giallo film by horror maestro, Santini (Antonio Mancino) and he soon finds himself caught up in a forbidding world of bitter actors, capricious foley artists and confounding bureaucracy. The longer Gilderoy spends mixing screams and the bloodcurdling sounds of hacked vegetables, the more homesick he becomes for his garden shed studio in Dorking. His mother’s letters alternate between banal gossip and an ominous hysteria, which gradually mirrors the black magic of Santini’s film that Gilderoy is responsible for orchestrating. As both time and realities shift, Gilderoy finds himself lost in an otherworldly spiral of sonic and personal mayhem.
Toby Jones, Cosimo Fusco, Antonio Mancino, Fatma Mohamed, Tonia Sotiropolou, and Salvatore Li Causi all star in the film, which is available on VOD and in theaters now.
