It's quite possibly the most disturbing horror movie ever made - and now French-Canadian shock horror Martyrs is due for the Hollywood remake treatment... but can this bold project hope to reach the dizzying heights of the original?

The marketing peeps behind it certainly think so, releasing this shouty and confident poster dubbing the Martyrs remake 'The Ultimate Horror Movie'...

Still, as much as I look forward to seeing how the Goetz Brothers handle this raw and ultraviolent material, there are plenty of red flags for the mainstream Hollywood audience. No spoilers, but it's unflinchingly brutal and guaranteed to spark controversy with its treatment of religious themes... not exactly safe ground for a wide release from the producers behind confirmed smash hits at Insidious, The Conjuring and Paranormal Activity...

Here's some footage from the original Martyrs for the curious...

... and a little more!

Either way, I'm intrigued to see how this is gonna turn out. Thoughts?
