“Kill Octopus Paul”

 

Shortly after the passing of the world’s beloved eight-legged soccer soothsayer, a Chinese film called “Kill Octopus Paul” is challenging the truth behind the oracle octopus who correctly predicted world cup results.

Director Xiao Jiang’s fictional thriller follows a group of Chinese soccer enthusiasts who travel to South Africa to uncover an international betting cartel conspiracy.

The plot twists and turns as viewers find out that the legend of Paul, the visionary mollusc, was fabricated and manipulated to aid a match-fixing scheme and international betting ring.
