“As a horror movie fan, the French ones are almost always the best ones. Films such as Martyrs, and Les 7 Jours Du Talion are some of the must sees.”
“I’ve watched ridiculous number of horror movies, most of them considered super gory but Martyrs was the only thing to ever disturb me like that. I was actually ok with everything untill they skinned her.”
"i thought the martyrs was repetitive and unrealistic but i also thought people don’t see the meaning and depth behind it"
“Martyrs was so interesting. It was extremely sad. But it has to be one of the most original and interesting horror movies to come out in quite some time.”
“I think that Martyrs is an incredible movie, but I’ve been disturbed by it in so many ways that I will never watch it again.”
"I think they need to make a prequel to Martyrs where it goes further into the story of the family that Lucie kills. The mystery of why they were in the cult and who in the family knew what was going on kills me. A sequel would be pointless, but a prequel could fill in holes without ruining the original"
“the girl with the scars all over her body in martyrs was terrifying”
“Martyrs made me cry. Martyrs made me throw up. Never has a movie affected me as much as that one did- although I haven’t seen A Serbian Film. (Don’t intend to)”
“I haven’t finished Martyrs (2008). I have seen and finished countless scary/horror/gore/you name it movies. I even finished A Serbian Film. But for some reason Martyrs made me desperately depressed not even 30 minutes into it. I was tempted to hurt myself. I haven’t hurt myself in over four years. I turned the movie off and called my boyfriend crying. I still don’t understand why a particular film could make me so sad to the point that for the first time ever, I turned it off.”
“I had an absolute girl crush on Lucie from Martyrs. She was gorgeous, and when she ended up dying I was disappointed. Around the end, I expected her to somehow come back and kick some major ass on that society, once again I was disappointed.
“I watched Martyrs on youtube and I didn’t feel shocked, just really sad.”
“After watching Martyrs and A Serbian Film back to back, i literally felt part of my soul die.”
