The prestigious New York Film Festival is getting a shot of
scary stuff for its 2012 edition that begins next month, with the announcement
of its first Midnight Movies section that will include a couple of hotly
anticipated fright features.
The Film Society of Lincoln Center has announced that the
Midnight titles will be Barry Levinson’s THE BAY (pictured below), Peter
Strickland’s BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO (pictured above) and Takeshi Kitano’s
OUTRAGE BEYOND. THE BAY, produced by PARANORMAL ACTIVITY mogul Oren Peli,
combines the found-footage and eco-horror subgenres to tell the story of a
Maryland town terrorized by parasitic “isopods” in the water supply via news
reports, surveillance footage and other video sources. In BERBERIAN SOUND
STUDIO, THE MIST’s Toby Jones plays a British audio engineer who travels to
Rome to create horrific aural FX for a giallo-style thriller, and discovers the
line between reality and fantasy blurring, perhaps fatally. OUTRAGE BEYOND is
Kitano’s sequel to his 2010 film OUTRAGE, in which the filmmaker plays a
renegade yakuza called on by a corrupt cop to take down a new crime boss who
shows no respect for the rules of power-sharing. The New York Film Festival
runs September 28-October 14; for more information, check out the fest’s
