MARTYRS

de Pascal Laugier

Synopsis

Two friends are out to take revenge on the people who kidnapped and tortured them when they were little girls, but they will wind up facing a cruelty much greater than any they’d ever imagined. Ten years after requesting ambulances at the doors of the Melia’s Auditori, Martyrs returns to Sitges with all its sadism intact.
