The Original Martyrs Is Enough To Give The Bravest People Nightmares
Martyrs is a 2008 French film that was remade in the United States in 2015, although that version was much tamer. The original film is packed full of child abuse and horrific deaths, centered around a series of girls who are locked up and tortured in a slaughterhouse.
When it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival people left the theater in masses and producer Bob Weinstein couldn’t finish watching it even though his company bought the movie rights. According to the New York Times, “When horror fans dare other horror fans to watch a movie, it’s Martyrs.”
