Ahead of its theatrical release later this month, a poster and trailer have arrived online for the philosophical horror Masking Threshold.
Directed by Johannes Grenzfurthner, the film centres on a data analyst as he documents his attempts to cure his own debilitating hearing impairment and uncovers the horrifying secret behind his condition.
Frustrated by a constant ringing in his ears, a paranoid data analyst documents his obsessive attempts to cure his own debilitating tinnitus through a series of home experiments conducted in a make-shift lab. But as his research becomes increasingly dark and macabre, a horrifying secret behind his maddening condition is revealed with a potential cure more sinister than he could have ever imagined.
A deeply philosophical horror film inspired by Lovecraftian weird fiction and cosmicism, experimental filmmaker Johannes Grenzfurthner takes us on an unsettling journey into the paranoia of the human mind to reveal the disastrous consequences of the relentless pursuit of knowledge.
Masking Threshold arrives in select cinemas on September 30th, followed by a digital release on October 7th.
