The Martyrs remake is gearing up to make its world premiere at ScreamFest and you can check it out for yourself October 20th at TCL Chinese Theater at 9:30 PM. Tickets are on sale now and available right here. The picture (which was made in total seclusion) has scored distribution with Anchor Bay and will be seeing a limited theatrical release in early 2016, which will be followed by a DVD, and Blu-ray bow. No word just yet on an exact date but we will keep you in the loop as we learn more!
The remake is directed by The Goetz Brothers (Scenic Route). Mark L. Smith (Vacancy) wrote the script. Troian Bellisario (Pretty Little Liars) and Bailey Noble (True Blood) star. Blumhouse and The Safran Company were reportedly involved with the production.
Martyrs tells the story of Lucie, a young girl who was beaten and tortured by a sadistic family years prior. Lucie and her friend set out to track down the family years later. The pair exacts brutal revenge but things take a turn for the bizarre and they wind up martyrs in the process of seeking retribution.
