Eureka Entertainment to release STRANGLED, an unpredictable psychological thriller, as part of the MONTAGE PICTURES range in a Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition on 5 February 2018.
Based on real-life events, Strangled is set in the provincial Hungary of the 1960s at the height of socialism, when a series of atrocious murders shock the small town of Martfű.
A psychotic killer is on the prowl, strangling young women. Amidst the media frenzy, an innocent man is accused and sentenced for the crimes he could not possibly have committed. A determined detective becomes obsessed with finding the real killer, whilst under pressure from his superiors who just want to see a man hang.
Winner of nine Hungarian Film Awards, Strangled is a dark and gritty thriller from Árpád Sopsits that brings to mind both Lang’s M and Fincher’s Zodiac in its approach to the murder-mystery genre. Eureka Entertainment is proud to present the film in its UK debut.
