If you find yourself feeling like a full english breakfast straight after an Italian Cannibal film, then it hasn't really achieved it's intended impact, and you're a bit weird.
I'd be similarly surprised (even disturbed) if anybody was lighting candles and breaking out the massage oil after A Serbian Film.

I have such a reaction to that film I have watched it only twice the most emotional reaction I have ever hard to film. I think it's a work of art as well as extreme horror. So beautiful and so horrid and... even talking about it chockes me up in so many ways.

I felt so drawn in and so uptight at the same time and loved the experience in that "wrong" way that fellow horror fiends enjoy so much. It is a rate occurrence and MARTYRS has been the most heightened version of that I have ever felt.
I suppose I do not recommend it because I'm a little protective of this perfect film.

Inside troubled me to the point where it was close to reaching for the stop button. A Serbian Film also had the same effect.
Torture = fine. Crossing moral boundries = not fine.
