Martyrs (8/10)

This is a French horror film that often gets lumped into the sub-genre of torture porn along with Hostel and Saw. I can surely see why, but this film feels like there’s more to it than that. The majority of the movie feels like a j-horror psychodrama in which you don’t know whether to believe what you are seeing. Just when you think you have it all worked out the film makes some crazy twists and it becomes something else entirely. It’s very dark and, at times, seriously cringe-worthy but is worth seeing through to the end if, for anything, the discussions you will have over what it all meant.
