Warp Films Berberian Sound Studio Wins three awards at FrightFest

Berberian Sound Studio:
Wins three awards at FrightFest

 

Peter Strickland's second feature film Berberian Sound Studio has won three FrightFest 2012 awards, including Best Film.

The full list of awards won were:

  • Best Film
  • Best Director (Peter Strickland)
  • Best Actor (Toby Jones)
 

Berberian Sound Studio is Peter Strickland's second feature film and co produced by Warp Films & Illuminations Films.

The film previewed at this years Film 4 FrightFest last weekend (Sunday 26 August). FrightFest is the UK's international fantasy and horror film festival which attracts thousands of fans each August to the London's west-end and prestigious Empire Cinema.


Synopsis

It's 1976 and Gilderoy, an introverted sound engineer of a very sensitive disposition from Dorking, specialising in local nature documentaries, goes to Italy to work on the horror film ‘The Equestrian Vortex’ by exploitation maestro Giancarlo Santini. Only the cheapest, nastiest and most abhorred films pass through the run-down Berberian Sound Studio doors though and in this crazy, dodgy and alien environment Gilderoy composes bloodcurdling sounds from hacked vegetables, works out how to create chainsaw effects and mixes screams. But soon life begins to imitate art as both time and realities begin to shift – and Gilderoy finds himself lost in an otherworldly spiral of on screen witchcraft, off-screen sexual intrigue and sonic and personal mayhem. From Strickland comes an evocative celebration and delicious deconstruction of the Italian horror genre, full of sly references and a brilliant soundtrack by Broadcast.


The Curzon Soho will be screening Berberian Sound Studio from 31 August, visit their website to book tickets
