Description: The fragile psyche of a respected British sound engineer starts to crack when he goes to work on a gruesome Italian horror film. A veteran of nature documentaries, talented engineer Gilderoy (Toby Jones) accepts a job working on boisterous Italian horror auteur Gianfranco Santini's (Antonio Mancino) "The Equestrian Vortex," but finds the gruesome subject matter becoming too much to take as he's barraged with a series of horrifying images. Later, as the sound crew strives to produce Foley effects with real impact, Gilderoy begins to feel as if the nightmares that haunt him in sleep have managed to invade his waking hour ... (more)

"First viewing - May 15th As you'd expect given the title, the sound design in this film is the best reason to watch it. That and watching these people create a variety of sounds for a giallo film were about all I appreciated here though. It's never predictable, but it got quite tedious in my opinion by never offering any satisfying payoff to all of its shenanigans. Probably it's just not my kind of film, though it seemed like it could've been. Ah well."

Great, another shit-ass year. (74 movies items)

"4.18 Peter Strickland, 2012 An admirable little film with some really cool ideas and is genuinely pretty tense which is a bit of a feat considering there's almost no proper narrative to pull you in or garner concern for the main character. "

"If a horror film can be reasonably likened to a bear trap, then the audience’s enjoyment, with exceptions, probably resides mostly in the first two acts as the filmmakers go about gradually winding and setting the spring. With Berberian Sound Studio, writer-director Peter Strickland has found an unusual solution for providing a catharsis that doesn’t compromise the dread he’s conjured: He doesn’t provide one at all, and that violation of narrative expectation is more disturbing than the "

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- July 2017 (29 movies items)

" Netflix- 1hr. 32min. First Viewing While the plot gets fairly difficult to follow as the film goes on (by design, but still), Berberian Sound Studio is a predominantly queasy psychological thriller that puts you into the shoes of it's protagonist, scaring the shit out of you. The sound design is superb, which should be expected with a film that has the gall to put "sound" in it's title, and Toby Jones lead role helps ratchet-up the tension. The story does get a bit questionable towards the end,"
