STRANGLED: Things Get Grim In True Life Hungarian Serial Killer Film

Based on actual events, Hungarian director Arpad Sopsits has been turning heads with his dark crime thriller Strangled. Despite what the artwork to the left may indicate the story of a necrophilic serial killer actually drew a restrictive 18+ rating and given the unflinching, matter of fact tone of the trailer it's not hard to see why.

Based on real-life events, this psycho-thriller is set in the provincial Hungary of the 1960s, when a series of atrocious murders shock the small town of Martfü. A psychotic killer is on the prowl, who continues to slaughter 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. Stuck in the suffocating social, political and psychological world of socialist Hungary, we soon find ourselves entangled in a web of intricate conspiracy and disturbing drama.

Take a look at the trailer below.
