The fantastic-looking Berberian Sound Studio picked up by IFC; watch the trailer here!

Time to start looking forward to this one, folks. BERBARIAN SOUND STUDIO looks like a combination of Brian De Palma's BLOW OUT and any number of sordid "giallo" films from the 60s and 70s. The chiller, which we first reported on a couple of weeks ago, will be hitting theaters in the UK very soon; thankfully, those of us in the states won't have to wait forever for it to slink its way in front of our eyes.

IFC Midnight has acquired the domestic rights to SOUND STUDIO, and will release it at an undetermined time (hopefully sooner rather than later). Most likely it will be hitting VOD first, before receiving a limited theatrical release. We've got the trailer for you below, so check it out!

In addition, BERBARIAN will be playing at the Toronto International Film Festival, New York Film Festival and Film4 Frightfest in London.

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.
