The Shout 1978,
This review is from: The Shout [DVD]  (DVD)
Alan Bates , John Hurt , Tim Curry , Suzannah York. Shot on location in North Devon. Bates is the crazy traveller who terrifies musician John Hurt whilst magically seducing his wife. Can he really kill just by the power of his 'shout'? This film may not be for all tastes. Very surreal but intelligent and with some great visuals - many bizarre images are juxtaposed together, creating a great atmosphere. Director Skolimowski ( Moonlighting , The Lightship) knows his stuff and paces the film well. Essentially a fantasy yet hard to categorize...this is truly a cult film and I for one was entranced by it. One of my personal all time favourites...."I'll shout you dead!" Buy it!
