Ahhhhh, I've been waiting for this one. I went into Martyrs with no knowledge or warning about it at all. I just watched it on a Saturday afternoon. A week later, I still felt pangs of anxiety when I thought about this movie. I woke up in the middle of the night, cringing from the thought of an image from this movie.
I bought the DVD at Best Buy a few months later. I wanted to support the director and his brilliant vision. However, the plastic wrap stayed on that DVD for a long time, and it was months before I could bring myself to watch it again.
Martyrs is a haunting and disturbing, yet incredible movie, that leaves an impact more than any other movie I've ever seen. If you haven't seen this one yet, it's a must for serious horror fans. Also, you have to see the original before they royally fuck up a remake by including Kristen Stewart. Ugh.
