Toby Jones gives an inspiring performance as a timid sound engineer sent to Italy to work on a mysterious and exotic horror film.
A smash hit at the Edinburgh Film Festival, this sinister and moody thriller follows a timid English sound engineer (Toby Jones) who finds himself working with a group of mysterious filmmakers on a horror film in Italy. Director Peter Strickland uses sound and an innate understanding of the psychology of fear to slowly build the tension of this moody, paranoid thriller to fever pitch. Toby Jones gives another outstanding performance as Gilderoy, a man permanently uncomfortable in a strange environment, and forced to deal with the minutiae of his work as the tone shifts from dark humour to claustrophobic mystery.
