    "I consider myself a huge aficionado of horror movies and I really love foreign horror films. There's something just atmospheric and creepy about foreign horror films. I can probably safely say one of my favorite horror films is the 2008 Martyrs. Don't confuse it with the more recently released one which is the US remake, that one is simply terrible. The French-Canadian 2008 Martyrs has a great story, awesome gore and effects, and the best part of it all is it will have you glued in your seat wondering what is going to happen next. It's unconventional to say the least although a lot of people might term it as torture porn. It does fall into that category of torture porn but it's not redundant and mindless like the Hostel films. This is probably the best torture horror porn film I can think of but I don't really like using that term for cult classics like Martyrs. It seems to not give proper respect by doing so because it's so much more. I'm not going to spoil any details about the movie but I'll just say I really enjoyed how it lead me in one direction and then just completely turned things sideways for me as the true story started to come forward!"

    "I was skeptical that I would like this when I went to see it, but it really drew me in at a few parts. I went to a late night viewing with a few friends and I was surprised at how much I liked it. The opening scene really set the table, and the move really picks up the pace around the 25 minute mark. There are a few jump scares of course, but that is to be expected. If you enjoyed the SAW series than you won't be disappointed. So suspenseful!"

    "As I fan of really bloody, gory movies this was amazing. Throughout the whole movie you will see a lot of disturbing and bloody things. The plot itself is decent and the acting as well is about what you would expect. If you are a fan of movies like Saw you will enjoy this."

    "I tried watching Martyrs and it was just too bizarre. The transcendental story-line was just too strange, I thought the film was off-putting."

    "I don't like this remake, it didn't give justice to the original French film. I just watched this because of Troian Bellisario."
