Daniel Stamm to Exorcise Martyrs Remake

Daniel StammThe remake of the French film Martyrs has been the subject of some really heated discussion amongst the fan base, and it’s not a two-sided argument either. As always everyone is rallying for the film to be left alone, but alas, we all knew that wasn’t going to happen. All we could hope for is that they nail down a good director who could get the job done. Speaking of which …

According to The LA Times the producers of the American remake (also the producers of Twilight) have just nailed down The Last Exorcism director Daniel Stamm (pictured right) to shape the film for an English-language audience. Honestly? We dig their choice. Stamm really exhibited some chops with Exorcism, so we’re looking forward to seeing what he’ll come up with here.

Pascal Laugier’s 2008 original told the story Lucie and Anna, orphans who establish a friendship, until one of them inexplicably goes on a murderous rampage to avenge what may or may not have been earlier incidents of child abuse.

Now that a director has been picked, let’s just strap in and hope for the bloody best shall we. Brace yourself. Something tells us this is going to be a way bumpy ride.

    Yes! More “You’re close-minded if you don’t give this a chance” rabble! More “The original isn’t that good anyway,” responses! More “I don’t like reading subtitles anyway,” bullshit. Can’t wait for the mouth breathers to rush to this remake’s defense!

    Inhale. Long exhale…….whatever.

    Once they remove the film’s teeth, what’s left?

    Doubtless future reviews of the remake will have lines such as: “While not as violent as the French original this version makes up for that lack with a disturbing psychological portrait.. (blah, blah, blah).”


    Isn’t there an American alive with an original idea of their own?

      There was this Arizona guy who managed to shove a cactus up his ass with no lube while he sucked off a donkey and played Amazing Grace on the accordian. That was pretty original.

      HEY! I totally made a dig at Republicans and didn’t even catch it!

        Awesome. I await the movie. “Cactus Ass: The Beginning!”
