Storyline

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.

Grisly, atmospheric n a lil tough to sit thru but definitely one of the best serial killer film.
5 April 2018 | by Fella_shibbySee all my reviews

Saw this on a rented dvd few days back. The trailer n premise was intriguing for me. Definitely for blokes who liked Marshland, Memories of murder n True Detective. It is about a sick n pervert serial killer n also about an innocent man who is put behind bars for the murders. The film explains the actions n consequences of both these men. Warning, this film is very grisly n the necrophiliac scenes r explained in details rather than off screen which i wud have preferred. Also the male rape n torture scenes were too much. I feel the director went overboard with the grisly scenes but he did a terrific job in making a good serial killer film. The night time photography is striking. It is eerie n atmospheric. The direction, acting n cinematography r all good but they needed some work on the editing.
