A film of intense perversity – the madness of the mind.

1978-The-shout-posterThe Shout is a British horror film based on a 1929 short story by Robert Graves.

A mysterious man who invades the lives of a young couple. The couple provides him hospitality but his intentions are gradually revealed as more sinister. He claims he has learned from an Aboriginal shaman how to produce a “terror shout” that can kill anyone who hears it unprotected.

Filmed along the North Devon coastline, it features a soundtrack by Genesis members Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks, including the track “From the Undertow” from Banks’ album A Curious Feeling.
