The remake of MARTYRS is notorious for almost the exact opposite reasons of the original French film. Where that film was bloody and brutal, many are worried that an American production will reduce its extreme quality to be more palatable and thus totally pointless.
I'm not here to make a decision one way or another, not having seen it yet, but the massive image gallery we've just received makes the film look like it's definitely going for hardcore. Check out the torturous, fully fleshed out collection below, along with a brand new stomach-churning poster!
Ten-year-old Lucie flees from the isolated warehouse where she has been held prisoner. Deeply traumatized, she is plagued by awful night terrors at the orphanage that takes her in. Her only comfort comes from Anna, a girl her own age.
Nearly a decade later and still haunted by demons, Lucie finally tracks down the family that tortured her. As she and Anna move closer to the agonizing truth, they find themselves trapped in a nightmare – if they cannot escape, a martyr’s fate awaits them...
MARTYRS, directed by Kevin and Michael Goetz and starring Troian Bellisario and Bailey Noble, will rip through theaters on January 22nd.
