Random: 30 Day Horror Challenge Day 18

What is your favorite foreign horror movie?

Ahhhhh, I've been waiting for this one.  I went into Martyrs with no knowledge or warning about it at all.  I just watched it on a Saturday afternoon.  A week later, I still felt pangs of anxiety when I thought about this movie.  I woke up in the middle of the night, cringing from the thought of an image from this movie.

I bought the DVD at Best Buy a few months later.  I wanted to support the director and his brilliant vision.  However, the plastic wrap stayed on that DVD for a long time, and it was months before I could bring myself to watch it again. 

Martyrs is a haunting and disturbing, yet incredible movie, that leaves an impact more than any other movie I've ever seen.  If you haven't seen this one yet, it's a must for serious horror fans.  Also, you have to see the original before they royally fuck up a remake by including Kristen Stewart.  Ugh.
