“Martyrs” premieres at Screamfest in Hollywood!

Tuesday, October 20th saw the world premiere of directors Kevin and Michael Goetz’ long awaited remake of the French “New Wave Of Horror” classic, Martyrs! The original 2008 release, directed by Pascal Laugier, is still noted for its absolute and unforgiving brutality. Upon its original release, the film turned both heads and stomachs as it stunned audiences worldwide. Now after being nothing more than a rumor for a long time, the Brothers Goetz have finally unleashed their version of Martyrs to an unsuspecting public at its Screamfest premiere last night in Hollywood. Although there is no set release date yet, Anchor Bay Entertainment will be distributing Martyrs to theaters nationwide in the first quarter of 2016, so prepare yourselves for a new version of what some have called “One Of The Most Ferocious Horror Films Ever Made” [Fearnet.com].

SYNOPSIS:  MARTYRS  is a remake of a French film, which  Anchor Bay will be distributing during the 1st quarter of 2016.    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…

In attendance were  Troian Bellisario  (TV’s “Pretty Little Liars”),  Bailey Noble  (TV’s “True Blood”) and directors  Kevin and Michael Goetz  (Scenic Route).

Santos Ellin Jr (AKA The Black Saint) has been watching films of dubious quality since time began, he has also watched a few horror films along the way as well. He has been writing for Horrornews.net for the last four years and was promoted to the position of Lead Theatrical Reviewer/Interviewer/PR last year. He makes so much money doing this that he needs do nothing else with his life but he was also asked to be a co-host of the Horror News Radio podcast last year as well. It’s been said (by a family member) that he is indeed the glue that holds the podcast together although his co-hosts might not agree. He thinks they are all jealous of him anyway.
