This has been my second viewing of Martyrs, and knowing what to expect this time around, it has had a much deeper impact than when I watched it a few years back. If you care to give it a shot, I suggest watching it alone, putting it away for a month or two, and then watching it again. I feel like this film has just ripped apart my insides. It has taken my mind to a state in which I have trouble articulating through writing. Maybe it's just me. You'll probably hate it. As repulsive the imagery in this film is, it has permanently affected me. It has accomplished its task. It has succeeded in its purpose. Recommended.
