The Sound and the Fury: Trailer for Berberian Sound Studio

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to work for a horror film? Not just any horror film with monsters and the like, but one of those good old-fashioned ’70s grindhouse films, like the original Last House on the Left?

That is exactly the kind of experience that the above trailer for Berberian Sound Studio looks to be. It even has some of the music and sound effects down perfectly. Here’s the official synopsis:

In the 1970s, a British sound technician is brought to Italy to work on the sound effects for a gruesome horror film. His nightmarish task slowly takes over his psyche, driving him to confront his own past. Berberian Sound Studio is many things: an anti-horror film, a stylistic tour de force, and a dream of cinema. As such, it offers a kind of pleasure that is rare in films, while recreating in a highly original way the pleasures of Italian horror cinema.

It looks right up my alley, what about you? Just remember, it’s only a movie.

Can't wait to see this. I love 70's horror cinema, particularly the horror movies and thrillers that came out of Italy at that time. The Italian films have a look, a feel, a mood that are all their own. Has there ever before or since from anywhere else been anything like Italian "giallos"?

I'm there with you Scott, if the trailer is a good judge, then the sounds are going to be amazing. I also saw Toby Jones (the lead) in a kind of Biopic of Hitchcock, it villianized the director a bit much for my tastes, but I still thought he was great. I'm woory that it's all style and no substance, but even if that's so I think it would be worth the price of admission.
