    No trust me, 'Martyrs' isn't just some horror-violence film. It's so much more than that..

    Seriously, watch it this weekend @elevenism

    @elevenism everything NYRexall is saying about Martyrs is true it is experience like no other, and this comes from a jaded horror movie fanatic.

    That isn't horror for me.
    All it makes me feel is bad for the people to whom the violence is being done.
    Same here, I hate torture porn.

    This is not torture porn. This is not gratuitous. And seriously, if you can go beyond the violent parts, this will blow your fucking mind. I think it's in fact right up your alley, man.

    So...A Serbian Film. Torture porn, or dark art of the most deviant order?

    That's a debate for those who have seen it!

    I've had I described to me and decided it wasn't for me. Contrary to Martyrs, I don't see the point. Martyrs has a point, I failed to understand A Serbian Film's point, or to consider its point important enough for me to suffer through more than an hour's worth of human atrocity.

    Irreversible and Martyrs are fucking brutal, but their violence has a very clear purpose. I didn't want to go through a movie which would put me through this just for the heck of showing me it could. That's how I perceived it anyway.

    ASF is definitely atrocity to the extreme, but it's important to remember that the kind of shit that happens in that movie does in fact go on in the real world.

    Irreversible is fucking hard to watch. It's like ASF, where you only need to see it once. It stays with you forever after that. I can't imagine what that must have been like, filming that horrible scene..

    Have you ever seen the French film Inside? That's another one that's hard to watch, but I felt had a point to what was going on. Again, you only need to see it once though..

    Yeah. That's the Not Fun part

    That's why I'm not a fan of torture, rape, actual suffering and anguish. That's not why I watch horror. I'm here to see a guy have his hands swallowed and chewed by a corpse's belly while said corpse's head goes its own way on its brand new spider legs. I'm here to see an impossible creature bred inside a poor guy's guts haunt the spaceship and hunt down the six remaining passengers. I'm here for the mad spirits infecting a bunch of friends in a remote cabin in the woods.

    Rape, torture, terror, anguish... Not so much. @elevenism and I are more like fantasy fans, Twilight Zone style. We want the alien and the unknown and the weird. We're not here to face how atrocious the real world can actually be.

    Which makes movies like Martyrs and Irreversible all the more peculiar to me : they were worth it. They were everything I hate, and I don't regret having watched them for a second.
