Oscar nominee Alan Bates turns in one of his most forceful performances as an asylum inmate with supernatural powers in a film that is both highly unsettling and deeply compelling.
During a cricket match at an insane asylum between the inmates and the local villagers, Crossley and Graves keep themselves entertained by telling stories. Crossley tells of how he came to possess supernatural powers enabling him to kill with a single shout and although his companion dismisses the tale as an insane fantasy, as the match continues the proceedings take a sinister turn. Employing a distinctive narrative style employed by Palme d'Or-nominated Polish director Jerzy Skolimowski, ‘The Shout’ is presented here in a brand-new High Definition transfer. Featuring strong performances from Susannah York and another early role for John Hurt.
