Martyrs – the movie

September 6, 2008

One of the sickest sounding new wave of French horror films is Martyrs. Its about a group of religious sickos who torture kids to achieve some kind of mystical insight into the after life. Its told through the lens of someone who survived this ordeal. Its apparently very shocking. Like Gaspar Noe Irreversible type shocking.

Its playing at Midnight Madness in Toronto. Jon Hewitt worded me up about it.

Looks to be legitimately disturbing.

Here are two trailers, the first a teaser, the second the trailer:

    Sick? Why is this sick? Compared to any other horror/thriller?

    Well apparently it is. Its shocking people all over the world. Its like Hostel, but with the victims as kids. That seems to qualify as sick to me.

    But apparently its a well made film and different from most of these torture films of late. One to look out for surely?

    If it is like Hostel then I see what you mean, stomach turning sick, might need to take some friends then to see it.
