Spain has been the recent meccha for interesting genre films (off the top of my head, Abres Los Ojos, The Abandoned, [REC], The Others, The Orphanage, Three Days, Time Crimes and Sexy Killer.) And one of the godfathers of recent rise has been Álex de la Iglesia
who has made a wide collection of films that spans many genres with his own gallows humour spin. While his resume is not spotless (can anyone out there sit through 800 Bullets?) it is certainly strong enough to warrant confusion when his 2008 serial killer film, The Oxford Murders
, which happens to star John Hurt, Elijah Wood and Dominic Pinon never appeared on these shores. But two years after the fact, Magnolia has picked up the rights and are putting it out the film on VOD on July 7 followed by limited theatrical release on August 6.
The film has been out on DVD in Europe for some time, but it is nice to see it officially show up in the US (and hopefully Canada).
