Lucie, a little 10-year old girl, disappears and is discovered a few months later wandering along the side of a road. The reason for her abduction remains a mystery. Traumatized and mute, she is put in a hospital where she is befriended by Anna, a girl of her own age. 15 years later and somebody rings the doorbell of an ordinary family home. A man opens the door to find Lucie standing there with a shotgun. Convinced she has found her tormentor, she pulls the trigger.
Martyrs is directed by Pascal Laugier (House Of Voices, Brotherhood Of The Wolf). It is an incredibly disturbing experience that goes beyond the constraints of an average Horror/Thriller and into the dark psychological depths of human drama and suffering. Extremely terrifying, utterly believable, provocative and ultimately tragic, Martyrs is one of the most unforgettable films you’ll ever witness.
