Slant Magazine - Kenji Fujishima
It's hardly a desecration of Pascal Laugier's 2008 French horror film of the same name, but that assumes the original is a canonical text.
The A.V. Club - Alex McCown
Unfortunately, in goosing the momentum, the creators of the film have lost the soul of what was essential to this horrific tale
The Hollywood Reporter - Frank Scheck
Deviating from the original in some key respects, this version of Martyrs doesn't make much of a case for its inspiration, but it may attract those hardcore horror fans averse to reading subtitles.
Village Voice - Chuck Wilson
The co-directing brothers Goetz prove adept at building escape-the-bad-guy action sequences, but they continually run up against the story's Marquis-de-Sade underpinnings.
The Playlist - Oktay Ege Kozak
Martyrs is only eighty minutes long, sans credits, yet still it manages to cram four bad horror films into its meager runtime.
