Film: Martyrs
"Martyrs are exceptional people. They survive pain, they survive total deprivation. They bear all the sins of the earth. They give themselves up. They transcend themselves... they are transfigured."
Mademoiselle

Martyrs is a French-Canadian horror movie starring Morjana Alaoui and Mylène Jampanoï.

The story is about Lucie, a torture victim who escapes from her captors. She's sent to an orphanage where she meets and befriends Anna, a fellow child abuse victim. While the police and the media investigated Lucie's predicament, the perpetrators were never caught, so Anna pledges to help Lucie track them down. Fifteen years later, Lucie seizes the chance to have her revenge.

The film is exceedingly graphic, but also contains plenty of Psychological Horror.
