This is the premis for 'Berberian Sound Studio', the new film from the award-winning British director Peter Strickland (director of 'Katalin Varga'). There hasn't been a lot released about the film yet, as shooting only begins this Autumn, but I must admit that even just from that small amount of information, I'm really curious to see how this develops.
"Every horror film in Italy has its sound twisted and sharpened at Berberian Sound Studio. Only the cheapest, nastiest and most abhorred films pass through these studio doors. Entering this twilight world of cinema is Gilderoy, the unassuming sound engineer from Dorking, England. Having previously recorded sound only for local documentaries, Gilderoy is hardly prepared to enter a studio of horror populated by sleazy directors, desperate actresses, freaks, troubadours and troublemakers.
