Default Christmas Comp #22 - Berberian Sound Studio - FINISHED

Today's Christmas Countdown Competition is a must have for ALL horror fans, especially those who like their horror films of the European variety. Up for grabs is the superb film Berberian Sound Studio....

Something unusual, a love letter to the sounds of Italian horror cinema. One for curious and open minded cult movie fans who like a bit of art on the side and all the Shameless/Arrow collectors, who can enjoy a tribute to the Giallo and pasta horror they love so much...

“One of the year’s very best films, a great, rumbling thunderclap of genius.”

★★★★★ Robbie Collin, The Telegraph




On DVD & Blu-Ray 31 Dec 2012



Dazzling Argento style and haunting Lynchian atmosphere are combined in Peter Strickland’s brilliantly original and hugely acclaimed homage to 1970s Italian horror.

Writer-director Peter Strickland (Katalin Varga) and stars Toby Jones (The Girl; Snow White And The Huntsman; The Hunger Games; Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Tonia Sotiropoulou (Skyfall) and Cosimo Fusco (Angels And Demons; The Card Player).

It’s 1976 and timid, Dorking-based sound engineer, Gilderoy, has been transplanted to Italy’s run-down Berberian Sound Studio to work on “The Equestrian Vortex”, the latest low-budget horror movie by notorious exploitation maestro Giancarlo Santini. Gilderoy’s task is a seemingly simple one: to create, record and mix the sounds of bloodcurdling screams, limbs being severed and the insertion of red hot pokers into human orifices, mostly using a variety of everyday household items such as old vegetables and a hammer. But Gilderoy is totally unprepared for the graphically grotesque images on show, the effect they have on him and for the unusual working practices of his employers. As he becomes more deeply involved in his work, the line between fantasy and reality becomes blurred and, very subtly, Gilderoy’s life begins to imitate art in a nightmare scenario from which he may never escape.

Winner of the Best Film, Best Director and Best Actor awards at the 2012 Film 4 Frightfest, Peter Strickland’s disturbing, eerie chiller is a must-see for fans of the work of Dario Argento, Roman Polanski and David Lynch and features a revelatory central performance by Toby Jones and a superb soundtrack by British indie electronic band, Broadcast.



-----------------------------------------------------

TO WIN:

Berberian Sound Studio is all about the horrors of working in the sound studios of Italian cinema during the 70s and 80s. So, let's put your cult film knowledge to the test!

Below you'll find a video I very quickly put together containing 5 short audio extracts from cult Italian horror films. You have to try and identify the films!

PM (Private Message) me your answers. Each one you get correct, your name will be entered into tomorrow's draw where one name will be randomly selected to win this excellent film.



Good luck,

Kyle

What a shame! I am desperate to see this film, but haven't the foggiest about two of the sound clips.

Oh well.

Doesn't matter if you don't get them all as you get your name in the hat for each one you're right on.
