Dazzling Argento style and haunting Lynchian atmosphere are combined in Berberian Sound Studio, released on DVD and Blu-Ray on 31st December 2012 by Artificial Eye, in Peter Stickland's brilliantly original and hugely acclaimed homage to 1970s Italian horror.

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.

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.
