Berberian Sound Studio Trailer

"Don't be afraid. A new world of sound awaits you." One of the many interesting films showing at TIFF next month is this intriguing, eerie psychological thriller of sorts, starring Toby Jones, who you should recognize from Captain America or Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy or The Mist. Berberian Sound Studio is about a fellow named Gilderoy who starts to lose his own mind when he's hired to orchestrate the sound mix for the latest film by Italian horror maestro, Santini, played by Antonio Mancino. This looks both aurally and visually unsettling, yet oddly fascinating, the perfect festival film to catch when you can. Take a look!

Here's the first trailer for Peter Strickland's Berberian Sound Studio, debuted on YouTube by TIFF:

In this tense and moody psychological thriller set in 1976, timid British sound engineer Gilderoy (Jones) begins to lose his grip on reality when he's hired to work for flamboyant Italian horror director Santini.

Berberian Sound Studio was both written & directed by English filmmaker Peter Strickland, of the short Bubblegum and 2009 feature Katalin Varga previously. This first premiered at the Edinburgh Film Festival earlier in the summer, but will also be playing the Toronto Film Festival this fall. Berberian Sound Studio doesn't have a US distributor yet, so be on the lookout for this after it gets more reviews at TIFF. Curious?

Peter Stickland better be careful, Billy Friedkin and the ghost of Michelangelo Antonioni might take him to court for that premise.
