Magnolia Pictures to Solve The Oxford Murders

By Steve Barton

Everyone loves a good murder mystery. Especially those in which the killer is particularly psychotic. Such is the case with Alex de la Iglesia’s thriller The Oxford Murders, which is finally coming to the States after a two-year long wait.

The film starring Elijah Wood, John Hurt, Leonor Watling, Julie Cox, and Burn Gorman (greatest name ever) will arrive on VOD, Xbox Live, Playstation, Amazon and Vudu on July 2nd and will be opening in theaters on August 6th from Magnolia Pictures.

“When an elderly woman is viciously murdered in Oxford, her body is discovered by two strangers whose lives are immediately changed forever: Arthur Seldom (John Hurt), a prestigious professor of logic, and Martin (Elijah Wood), a young graduate student who has just arrived at the university hoping to be Seldom’s pupil.

It quickly becomes clear that hers is the first in a series of increasingly bizarre murders, with each victim’s corpse marked by strange symbols. Professor and student join forces to try and crack the code, setting into motion an elaborate game with the killer with ever-increasing stakes. As Martin gets closer to the facts, he grows increasingly unhinged from his grasp on the world around him.

Based on Guillermo Martinez’s award-winning novel, THE OXFORD MURDERS is an edgy and intelligent thriller from cult-favorite director Álex de la Iglesia.”
