Photos from Martyrs – Pascal Laugier, 2008. Quite certainly the stuff of nightmares and easily one of the most difficult films I’ve ever seen. A philosophical take on the torture porn genre. If that sounds interesting in the least, then, like me, you’re probably a maladjusted insomniac who’s seen too many horror movies. But life’s more fun that way. To reiterate: Martyrs is NOT a fun journey. It is decidedly not for those who bristle at the sight of blood. If you stick it out, it will make you think (it’s overall message is delivered a bit heavy handedly, but it is intriguing nonetheless). Like Haneke’s Funny Games (the original, 1997 version), but for the Saw Generation.
