I watched the movie Martyrs not too long ago, and have to say that it was just absolutely brilliant. The first half of Martyrs was pretty good in that the viewer is only partially certain of what is going on, while the second half was a descent into a strange world of brutality and mysticism. The final scenes were nothing short of complete brilliance and transformed this movie from a simple gore-porn horror movie into something almost spiritual. That shifting of gears was almost as disconcerting as some of the torture sequences, and boy do they have some torture sequences! Brilliant though it was, Martyrs is not for the squeemish. The makers of this one really make the viewers earn that final scene! Trust me, it’s worth it.
