As an American, I've heard many of the "French are pussies” statements among my fellow countryman, especially around the time of the Iraqi War. Yet whenever I'd listen to these rants- maybe even reluctantly joining in myself- I would look around in fear. For what my fellow Americans don't know is that the French are the most terrifying and wrathful people in the entire world. My evidence? I've seen their horror films and they scare me. I, of course, have to presume that a countries horror genre represents the peoples mentality as a whole. Just look at today's subject, “Martyrs”. It is one of the darkest and most harrowing horror films I've ever had to experience.
