Made in 2007, I originally found this title at Blockbuster of all places, and theres simply no way they realize what it is. Its not SO extreme that you cant sit through it, but its pretty f-ed up. This movie starts as your typical torture-porn, in the vein of Hostel, ... read more

friend recommended this to we - and wow - what a film. Nice little twist, plenty of 'near the bone' scenes and some great effects - we worth watching.

Great Movies to See Only Once (6 movies items)

"The greatest horror movie ever made, Martyrs is definitely too much of a downer to see more than once."
