First poster & image from the ‘Martyrs’ remake

by Phil Wheat

Coming courtesy of Dread Central, here’s the first image and poster from the Goetz Brothers’ remake of Pascal Laugier’s Martyrs – which has already completed filming (it’s a rarity these days to only hear about a movie AFTER it’s finished) – the latest film from the uber-prolific Blumhouse Productions.

The remake stars Bailey Noble (True Blood) and Troian Bellisario (Pretty Little Liars). Martyrs also features Kate Burton (Stay, Big Trouble in Little China) and Blake Robbins (Rubber). The script comes fromMark L. Smith whose previous work includes Vacancy, The Hole and The Revenant.

Ten-year-old Lucie flees from the isolated warehouse where she has been held prisoner. Deeply traumatized, she is plagued by awful night terrors at the orphanage that takes her in. Her only comfort comes from Anna, a girl her own age. Nearly a decade later and still haunted by demons, Lucie finally tracks down the family that tortured her. As she and Anna move closer to the agonizing truth, they find themselves trapped in a nightmare – if they cannot escape, a martyr’s fate awaits them…
