The Shout Blu Ray|
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 – a perfect companion piece to Nicolas Roeg’s ’70s masterpiece Don’t Look Now. Also featuring strong performances from Susannah York and John Hurt and employing a distinctive narrative style employed by Palm d’Or-nominated director Jerzy Skolimowski The Shout is presented here in a High Definition transfer made from the original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio. During a cricket match at an insane asylum between the inmates and the local villagers patients 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 friend dismisses the tale as an insane fantasy as the match continues the proceedings take an emphatically sinister turn...

During a cricket match at a lunatic asylum a couple (John Hurt and Susannah York) are told a story by one of the patients (Alan Bates). He tells of the time he spent in Australia and of the special, devastating gift the aborigines taught him. The couple allow him to move in with them where he begins a passionate affair with the wife. The husband is only interested in learning 'the shout' himself so he can use it in his music, even though it has the power to kill.
