  1. I’m no expert on extreme cinema, and still have an incredible amount of films to catch up on, but I’m betting Pascal Laugier’s Martyrs is as brutal as it gets. More importantly, it’s well-acted and thought-provoking, something too many films of the genre can’t lay claim to nowadays unfortunately.

    This film has defninitely moved into my top faves of all-time. A great review of a great film!

  2. While not being an expert I have seen a fair amount of extreme cinema. There are many films that have stronger scenes of violence & bloodshed. The August Underground series immediatly spring to mind. But these films lack characterisation & plot, rendering the violence less disturbing. It is because Martyrs is such an all round good movie that makes it so powerful.
    Thank you for the kind words.
