The Andromeda Strain (1971)

An American science fiction directed by Robert Wise.
A team of scientists are called into a special laboratory to examine an extraterrestrial disease and a man and baby who are not effected by it..
The video was as awesome as awesome gets. The audio was as horse-cock sucking shitty as can be. We've got these beautifully composed shots of the scientists going though decontamination in monochromatic rooms, but when they get where they're going, they arrive to the sound of a baby crying and machines screeching. "WAH! WAH!" "EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE" Like nails on a chalkboard or the most horrible synthesizer sound ever created. There was also no music, which made the sound effects and dialogue stand out even more. Sure, the video is awesome, but they fucked up the audio something fierce, and intentionally! I have to give it a weird pink rating for that kind of crazy situation.
