Dig these giallo-inspired credits from Berberian Sound Studio

Peter Strickland's BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO doesn't come out here in the states until early 2013, but you can get a taste of it here with the below credit sequence. And if you love some Italian-tinged horror, you won't want to miss 'em!

Now, it should be stated that these are not the credits for BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO, but the credits for the film within it, a gory piece of giallo called THE EQUESTRIAN VORTEX.

You can spot my review of BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO closer to the film's release. By the way, if you love what you're hearing the film's soundtrack will be available in January via Warp Records.

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; IFC will announce a release date soon.

And here's the film's trailer:

Extra Tidbit: I think Toby Jones should just star in everything from now on.
