Psychological thriller Strangled comes to dual format in February

14 December 2017

Eureka Entertainment to release Strangled, an unpredictable psychological thriller, as part of the Montage Pictures range in a Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition in February.

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.

“A robust, atmospheric suspense thriller that shows how politics and personal ambition can have a toxic effect on justice” – Hollywood Reporter

“Affectionately adhering to the tropes of the thriller genre, what transpires is a captivating production that while incredibly upsetting, makes for a rewarding experience” – HeyUGuys
