TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: Martyrs flays off everything that gave the original its icy horrific beauty, leaving us an empty, pointless remake.

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...

Both the French and U.S. iterations of "Martyrs" are transparently voyeuristic cheaply ginned-up Guignol peep shows with intellectual pretensions.

Pointlessly repellent.

Jan 21, 2016 | Full Review…

The filmmakers ... place only the tiniest fig leaf of a story on a panoramic canvas of the gory, gross and repellent.

Jan 21, 2016 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Shatteringly stupid and repulsively misogynistic, "Martyrs" mashes revenge, torture and the supernatural into one solid, quasi-religious lump.

Jan 21, 2016 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, in goosing the momentum, the creators of the film have lost the soul of what was essential to this horrific tale.

Another slash-and-dice programmer with no redeeming factors whatsoever.

Audience Reviews for Martyrs

½

A completely butchered remake, the original beauty and horror were gone in this slasher-like remake. The horror was tone down by a mile, the shock and twists were gone, stop copying and start making your own films with fresh ideas!
