Being clear again, Martyrs is hard to watch. But what do we do with unsettling things? Make light of them with screen caps and jokes, obvi. Plus you need to watch it so when that asshole horror buff in your film studies class is getting all pretentious you can be like "Bro, have you seen Martyrs?" and he'll be like "...No. What's that?" and you can be like "LOL bro aren't you up on French horror?" and he'll feel all stupid. Unless he has seen it, then you guys can bond like "Dude isn't it fucked up?" and high five and become lifelong friends. —Angelo
Archival footage, a staple of any good horror film, featuring scary nun with bike.
Great winter style: beanie (I mean toque,) trench and a shotgun.
It's French so the girls are obviously flawless.
This is the still I sent to my horror-buff friend to explain why he should see Martyrs.
Then this scary old lady shows up and stuff starts getting existential, LIKE ANY GOOD FRENCH MOVIE SHOULD.
I'm not going to tell you what's up in this scene but believe me, it's rough.
And it all comes down to this one moment, a whisper spoken from the brink of death, and you're either like "Ohhhhh," or "What???" but either way it makes you want to watch the movie again (in a couple months, after your stomach has settled down).
