The Martyrs remake has been a hot topic lately. We’ve been getting a lot of release information over the last couple days, but now we have some new stills and a poster to share. The Goetz Brothers are calling this movie a retelling and NOT a remake. We found that to be a pretty interesting distinction, though we won’t be entirely sure what it means until we get our eyes on the film later this week. Still, the new images look like this “retelling” is certainly going to embody the spirit of the French original. I can’t imagine that the brutality of the original will be repeated when this is shown in American theaters on January 22, 2016, but I’m also expecting it to be pretty fucking good.
Martyrs is set to hit VOD platforms on February 2nd. Hopefully these images and poster will hold you over until the big day:
