The Shout
  • Description

    It's a gorgeous summer's day and two teams play a cricket game with a difference. It's the annual match between the local mental asylum and the villagers and, in the scoring hut, patients Crossley and Graves sit side-by-side recording every run, over and fallen wicket. to keep themselves entertained, Crossley recounts a terrifying story of how he came to possess supernatural powers that enable him to kill with a shout. It was, he claims, an ancient magic he learnt from spending many years with the Australian Aborigines. Although Graves dismisses the tale as an insane fantasy, as the match continues the proceedings take on an emphatically sinister turn...

    Starring Oscar-nominated actor Alan Bates as the deranged Crossley, The Shout feature strong performances from both Susannah York and John Hurt. The narrative style employed by pal d'Or-nominated director Jerzy Skolimowski, lends depth and dimension to a film that is deeply engaging as well as terrifying, winning him the Jury's prize at Cannes in 1978. With an enigmatic opening sequence, fragments and flashbacks, this release will appeal not only to fans of the horror genre, but audiences who enjoy intelligent, unusual mysteries.
