In LFO, an amateur scientist develops a technique for hypnotizing people using a specific sound frequency. He puts this into action using his neighbors as subjects, and things get weird, as you’d expect. Fittingly for a trailer for a film about manipulation via sound, there is no dialogue here — this LFO trailer is all machine-made sound and atmosphere. There’s not much indication of the film’s sense of humor here, as this trailer is all about the weird. But that’s a good place to start.
LFO has been released in quite a few other countries already, but is just now coming to the US via SpectreVision and Dark Sky Films.
LFO will be on VOD/Digital Download platforms and DVD on October 28. Trailer via Dark Sky Films.

Robert (Patrik Karlson, The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared), an amateur sound engineer, spends hours in in his basement full of wires and oscillators experimenting with sound waves. After he finds a frequency that allows him to hypnotize people, he lures his attractive new neighbors into his house to act as test subjects for his discovery. Under Robert’s control, the oblivious couple is manipulated into increasingly elaborate role-playing games that allow Robert to indulge in his most megalomaniacal fantasies. But when investigations into the suspicious death of his wife threaten to bring an end to his demented operation, Robert must use his scientific breakthrough on a much larger scale in order to continue his warped research.
