More Info:
  • Alex McCown

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

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Kenji Fujishima

    It's hardly a desecration of Pascal Laugier's 2008 French horror film of the same name, but that assumes the original is a canonical text.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Frank Scheck

    Deviating from the original in some key respects, this version of Martyrs doesn't make much of a case for its inspiration, but it may attract those hardcore horror fans averse to reading subtitles.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Chuck Wilson

    The co-directing brothers Goetz prove adept at building escape-the-bad-guy action sequences, but they continually run up against the story's Marquis-de-Sade underpinnings.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Glenn Kenny

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

  • Kyle Smith

    A self-serving remark on the part of the filmmakers, who place only the tiniest fig leaf of a story on a panoramic canvas of the gory, gross and repellent.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Oktay Ege Kozak

    Martyrs is only eighty minutes long, sans credits, yet still it manages to cram four bad horror films into its meager runtime.

  • Robert Abele

    Depending on what you need from horror like this – shock followed by relief, or a brutalization fix – Martyrs is bait-and-switch, or it’s a drawn-out tease that makes good. Either way, it’s a sop to vile tastes.

  • Noel Murray

    The movie feels like a thin excuse to show image after image of women being abused. This Martyrs has the bones of its predecessor, but it's been bled dry.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Jeannette Catsoulis

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