15 | Martyrs


Released: 9/25/2008
Director & Writer: Pascal Laugier
Starring: Morjana Alaoui, Mylene Jampanoi, Catherine Begin
Synopsis: A young woman, Lucie, tracks down the family who may or may not have held her captive and tortured her when she was a child. Things quickly spiral out of control and Lucie enlists the help of her close lady-friend, Anna. However, the monsters that Lucie is fighting become too strong and soon Anna is left alone to pick up the pieces. This alone could be a perfectly acceptable synopsis for a movie, right? Well not this movie. You barely have time to digest the events that unfold in the first "part" of this film before you are forced to experience a whole new level of depravity. It's a feel-good flick for the whole family to enjoy!

Our next episode will cover Starry Eyes, a film about one woman's desperate journey to make it big in Hollywood. Unfortunately for our main character, talent is no longer enough to succeed as an actress.
