Director Peter Strickland immerses our sense of sound into a pool of horrific delight in his latest feature entitled Berberian Sound Studio. A creeping scare flick that unflinchingly entwines its narrative and head protagonist within its own aural web-work. Got to love a film that tampers with its own cinematic tools!
Short and straightforward summary can be read as follows (via TIFF 2012):
“In this tense and moody psychological thriller, a timid British sound engineer begins to lose his grip on reality when he is hired to work for a flamboyant Italian horror director.”
