Toby Jones in Psychological Horror 'Berberian Sound Studio' Trailer
Though Peter Strickland's horror film Beberian Sound Studio has already seen release in the United Kingdom, IFC Midnight is bringing this promising gem that has played the Toronto International Film Festival, the New York Film Festival and Fantastic Fest to the United States next month. Toby Jones stars in this stylish, psychological thriller that looks and feels like it could have been made in the 70s in addition to have the story set in the middle of the decade. With truly terrifying sound work and trippy, haunting visuals in this first trailer, the film looks like an incredible work of art and horror all in one. Watch below!
Here's the trailer for Peter Strickland's Berberian Sound Studio, originally from Apple:
In 1976, a mild-mannered British sound engineer named Gilderoy (Toby Jones) arrives in Rome to work on the post-synchronized soundtrack to The Equestrian Vortex, a tale of witchcraft and murder set inside an all-girl riding academy. But as Gilderoy begins to work on this unexpectedly terrifying project, it's his own mind that holds the real horrors. As the line between film and reality blurs, is Gilderoy working on a film - or in one? Peter Strickland writes and directs Berberian Sound Studio which also stars Tonia Sotiropoulou and Susanna Cappellaro and arrives on VOD, iTunes and in limited theaters on June 14th. Good stuff?

What did I just watch?! It looks intriguing and weird both at once. Intriguingly weird... Weirdly intriguing? Either way, it's now on my radar.

Strange I was watching Kiss of The Damned the other day, same kind of sounds, looks like a nice family afternoon movie.

Didn't this come out last year? I saw it awhile back and while I really appreciated it's high style and retro feel, it ultimately became an empty experience as it lacked a story and focus. Still, in terms of homages to Eurohorror it was a helluva lot better than Amer.

Yes, this came out last year. It's even been on Blu-ray for 275 days.
