“The mere observation of a phenomenon inevitably changes the phenomenon.” Drafthouse has unveiled a new official trailer for Masking threshold, a peculiar and mysterious sonic horror thriller from an Austrian director. This premiered at Fantastic Fest last year, and Drafthouse Films will release it in their own theaters later this month. “A surreal study in dread.” Conducting a series of experiments in his own makeshift lab, a skeptical computer scientist attempts to cure his heartbreaking hearing loss. But where will his research lead him? Masking Threshold combines a chamber play, a scientific procedure, an unboxing video and also a DIY YouTube channel while suggesting endless vistas of existential pain and decay. Well, ok. Described as a “deeply philosophical horror film inspired by bizarre fiction and Lovecraftian cosmicism, experimental filmmaker Johannes Grenzfurthner takes us on a disturbing journey into the paranoia of the human mind to reveal the disastrous consequences of the relentless pursuit of knowledge”. It looks wild.
