About Martyrs 💬

  • MARTYRS is a story of horror, friendship, revenge, and reconciliation.

10-year-old Lucie Jurin 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 Assaoui, 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...


Like most fans of the original MARTYRS, when we first heard about this new rendition we were shocked... A remake? The paint on Pascal Laugier's classic hadn't even dried yet. And the original has such a massive following of dedicated fans... Could we somehow do it justice? Once we read Mark L. Smith's screenplay we knew we had to make it.

What attracted us most to this version of MARTYRS was not only the strong female roles of Lucie and Anna exacting merciless revenge, but revealing what would happen if Lucie didn't end up dying when she did in the original. If Lucie lived on in that moment, what would the bond between these two women be able to endure? How far could it take them? We looked forward to creating a dark and terrifying world where the only glimmer of hope and goodness could be born from the enduring bond of friendship and love. Very quickly we knew that this wasn't the same MARTYRS - and it's wasn't a toned-down (American) version that decides to pander to the masses either. No, this was still a deep and profoundly moving story set against the same backdrop as the original - nodding to the shadows of an underworld that is all too real. This new, MARTYRS became its own thing - a rebirth for the characters and for us - and we never looked back.

The scariest kinds of stories are those that represent true evil found here on earth, rooted within humanity. This is one of the elements that we loved about the original. We love turning the convention of monsters and ghosts on its head and forging ahead with unapologetic and distinct storytelling that paves new paths.

As much as MARTYRS explores man exacting his force upon another man - kidnapping, torture, pain, dominance - it also presents an existential question: is it possible for those so close to death on Earth to actually see the other side before they perish, and to pass that information back to the living? Imagine the possibility. Imagine the measure of the answer and you realize a cult searching for an answer like this very well could and probably has truly existed. This is the worst kind of evil. This is the ultimate power misused through delusions of grandeur. Searching for answers to a higher power. Questioning religion. Sacrificing for knowledge.

Enter Lucie and Anna. Two little girls have forgotten by the world around them. Abused by the world around them. All they have are one another. How far will that childhood bond take them? And will they be able not only to withstand an evil so palpable and real, but ultimately to prevail against it?

We think so.
