The original Martyrs movie is probably the most disturbing horror movie ever made; a bold task, then, to attempt a remake? Possibly. Check out the trailer for the 2008 French-Canadian original to see what the remake is founded upon.
Will this remake be a brave attempt at matching and reinventing the dark gut-blood of the original, or simply a naff cash-in? Writer Mark L. Smith, who wrote upcoming Oscar-tipped gorefest The Revenant, scripted Martyrs 2015 so I have reasonably high hopes...
Bloody Disgusting just dropped a batch of so-fresh-they're-still-bleeding pics from the new Martyrs remake, released January 22.
Martyrs is released in selected cinemas January 22 and on DVD, Blu-Ray and VOD February 2.
