Synopsis: 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…

I’m trying to stay positive about this one but I can honestly tell you that it is a hard thing to do. This is a remake of Martyrs, for crying out loud. If you’ve ever seen the original French film from director Pascal Laugier then you know that it is one of the most disturbing and relentless horror films of arguably the last 20 years. To remake this film borders on cinematic blasphemy. But, again, I am trying to stay positive.

Martyrs is directed by Kevin Goetz and Michael Goetz with a screenplay by Mark L. Smith based on characters created by Pascal Laugier. It stars Troian Bellisario, Caitlin Carmichael and Kate Burton and it is set for United States release date of January 22, 2016. Until then and as always you may enjoy the trailer and poster below.





    • Always remember that just because I post these trailers that I never, ever expect anyone to watch them. They catch my eye for various reasons-some good, some bad and in this case some ‘you gotta be f*cking kidding me’.As for the original being visionary: oh yes it certainly was. But you’re right; it will take a piece of you with it.
