Eureka Entertainment have announced the theatrical release of Strangled (aka A Martfüi Rém), a chilling serial-killer drama based on the true story of the Monster of Martfü, in selected cinemas nationwide (UK & Ireland) from November 17 2017.
Based on real-life events, Strangled, which stars Károly Hajduk, Gábor Jászberényi and Zsolt Anger is a social, political and psychological thriller 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.
Árpád Sopsits directs this tale of a prowling psychotic killer slaughtering young women while an innocent man is wrongly accused and sentenced for crimes he could never have committed. A determined detective arrives on the scene and soon becomes obsessed with the case while under pressure from the prosecutor to see a man hang. We soon find ourselves entangled in a web of intricate conspiracy and disturbing drama.
Winner of NINE Hungarian Film Awards in 2017, Strangled grapples with an incredible anomaly of crime and punishment as it examines and expands the extraordinary story of the infamously malicious Martfű Murderer.
Strangled is released theatrically in the UK & Ireland – November 17, 2017
