‘Martyrs’ trailer: What’s the French word for “awesome?”

FRESH UPDATE STYLEZ: Um, that YouTube video isn’t working anymore, but luckily, there are other teasers online (obtained more legally, I guess).  I wrote about those here, so ch-ch-check it out.

This upcoming French horror flick was apparently a big hit at Cannes this year and has been bought up by the Weinsteins for US distribution (which means, we’ll probably get to see it via Dimension Extreme and not in theaters).

France. A night at the beginning of the 1970s. Lucie, a little girl missing for over a year, is discovered wandering by the side of a country road. Near catatonic, she can say nothing about what has happened to her. The cops quickly find the place in which she’s been incarcerated – a disused slaughterhouse. Every indication is that she never once left the empty, freezing room in which she was imprisoned. Filthy, starving, dehydrated, the child’s body nonetheless bears no traces of sexual abuse – this was no pedophile abduction, but something far stranger. What happened in that icy room? And how did Lucie escape?

The French are on a roll, so let’s keep and eye out for this one.
