Directed by brothers Michael and Kevin Goetz, English-language film Martyrs (review) is of course a remake of Pascal Laugier’s same-named French film from 2009. The original was nothing short of a brutal masterpiece, and needless to say, it’s going to be hard for the remake to stack up.

Will it be any good? It won’t be long before we find out. The American remake of Martyrs is headed to limited theaters and Digital HD on January 22, 2016, courtesy of Anchor Bay. In the meantime, you can check out some images below along with all the info you need to know.

Bailey Noble, who played Adilyn Bellefleur in “True Blood,” toplines with “Pretty Little Liars” star Troian Bellisario. Kate Burton (Stay, Big Trouble in Little China) and Blake Robbins (Rubber) round out the cast.

Mark L. Smith (Vacancy, The Hole, The Revenant) penned the screenplay.

Synopsis:
Ten-year-old Lucie flees from the isolated warehouse where she has been held prisoner. Deeply traumatized, she is plagued by awful night terrors at the orphanage that takes her in. Her only comfort comes from Anna, a girl her own age. Nearly a decade later and still haunted by demons, Lucie finally tracks down the family that tortured her. As she and Anna move closer to the agonizing truth, they find themselves trapped in a nightmare – if they cannot escape, a martyr’s fate awaits them…
