Reviews

Films at their best - and worst - continue to have tremendous power, and Martyrs is absolutely a film which encapsulates this.
- Keri O'Shea, Warped Perspective
With Martyrs the horrifying imagery and gore are not the point or the source of entertainment ... It transcends the genre, and challenges the viewers to see beyond the horror.
- Marianna Neal, Impression Blend
