UK distributor picks up anticipated horror about a sound engineer whose work for an Italian horror studio becomes a case of life imitating art.

UK distributor Artificial Eye has added to its recent spree with Peter Strickland’s Berberian Sound Studio, today announced as an Edinburgh Film Festival world premiere.

Toby Jones stars as a naïve and introverted sound engineer hired to mix the latest giallo film by horror maestro Santini.

Artificial Eye previously released Strickland’s Berlin Silver Bear winner Katalin Varga.
