Movie Info

Written and directed by Alex Noyer, this horror thriller sees deaf ten-year-old Alexis Reeves (Jasmin Savoy Brown) experience the trauma of her PTSD-ridden father murdering her mother. Attempting to save her, Alexis hits him over the head, killing him. It is at this moment she regains her hearing in a rush of synesthesia. Now an adult, Alexis is quiet about her past but keen to get that same rush as she experiments with unusual and sadistic sounds to try to relive the sensation; but only acts of graphic violence truly create the soundscape she desires. Co-starring Lili Simmons and James Jagger.

Critic Reviews for Sound of Violence

All Critics (42) | Top Critics (5)

Remains absolutely faithful to giallo tradition, in taking a crass and borderline ludicrous premise and pushing it to lurid ends.

Top Critic

The potential is here, but with Sound of Violence, the blood only runs so deep.

May 31, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Alex Noyer is out to shock the hell out of you and he does just that with this hardcore horror outing, which is as original as it is gory.

May 27, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

"Sound of Violence" boasts perhaps the greatest giallo premise that Dario Argento never dreamed up. It's just a shame that Noyer decides that it isn't enough.

May 21, 2021 | Full Review…

Even with his most imaginative slaughter sequences, Noyer aims for more than shock value.

March 20, 2021 | Full Review…

The synaesthetic kills erupt on screen like the Northern lights on LSD, but it's the quieter character moments that really hit home.
