Win MARTYRS on DVD In Our Competition

To celebrate the release of MARTYRS – out now on DVD and Digital HD – we have a copy on DVD to giveaway.

A brilliant reimagining of the French revenge shocker, this all-new version puts its own bloody stamp on the story – but is just as harrowing, visceral and gutsy. Directed by the “ones to watch” sibling duo of Kevin and Michael Goetz (Scenic Route), Martyrs is one of the most exciting horror remakes yet.

It also boasts some great performances from its young cast, with Troian Bellisario and Bailey Noble proving themselves as two scream queens for the ultra-violent generation – plus cult star Toby Huss makes the most chilling appearance of his career.

For your chance to win MARTYRS on DVD, simply comment below telling us which is your favourite remake and why.

The competition will close at 11.59pm GMT on Tuesday 12th April 2016 and one valid comment will be chosen and notified by email.

BatWhilst I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, nothing can beat a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. I don't do 3D movies so put the red and green spex away!

  1. The seven Samurai was remade into the magnificent seven. I have seen boih. I hate seven Samurai but love the magnificent seven . main reasons it’s got a load of good actors in it, and nearly all of them are legend.

  2. I think poltergeist did a pretty good job!

  3. The Thing, still remains one of the best horror films of all time. Even the special effects have (just about) stood the test of time

  4. It would have to be The Hills Have Eyes. Although in keeping to the original story it brings the film to the modern generation. The original now looking dates die or the budget. A bigger budget, great make up and increased violence helps the remake surpass the original. It may not be a new idea anymore, but it a crowded genre of mutated cannibal films and remakes, this defiantly stands out

  5. the last house on the left, the original looks very dated where as the remake brings it up to date but keeps with the original story

  6. I’m going with The Fly from 1986 – Jeff Goldblum is brilliant in the lead role and it’s overall a classier (and gorier) production that its 1958 counterpart.

  7. Poltergeist was a pretty good remake, I hope they remake the others too!

  8. I watched the “Carrie” with Chloë Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore the other night and was very impressed – def better than the original 🙂

  9. I’m not generally a fan of remakes, but Cronenberg’s “The Fly” is sublime!

  10. Mine Is The Evil Dead when i first heard that they were remaking it it filled me with dread but the remake pays homage to the original while blazing its own path with a new and unique story which is rare in a remake.

  11. Texas Chainsaw Massacre. I’ve seen the remake several times with my daughters and we all enjoy it. Horror films are our favourite!

  12. The Ring remake was pretty great, shame about the sequel though.

  13. Carrie, i think the original was good, but the remake was a whole lot better

  14. Outland basically a remake of High Noon but set in space/

  15. Scarface for the action and interpretation

  16. John Carpenter’s 1982 remake of ‘The Thing’ is one of my favourite horror movies of all time. Much better than the more recent 2011 reboot though 😉

  17. I quite enjoyed the remake of the hills have eyes but didn’t like the sequel much. Zombies wanting to breed was a step too far lol

  18. i loved the dawn of the dead films

  19. Night of the Living Dead. I thought it stayed true to the original film.

  20. I think the 2004 “Dawn of the Dead.” I remember a lot of the original horror films that have been remade and in the vast majority of cases they remake falls well short of the original. Along with “Dawn of the Dead” improvements definitely occurred with “The Fly” and “The Thing.”

  21. Mad max because it was none stop action and had a some great charaters and a great story

  22. House on Haunted Hill, not as good as the original but because of Geoffrey Rush’s caricature of Vincent Price in the lead role.

  23. i enjoyed Poltergeist

  24. I like the remake of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, it was a good combination of gore and scariness.

  25. The Thing (1982) was a truly great film. It was not only far superior than it’s original, it was far superior than most horror films.

  26. One of my favourite remakes is “Invasion of the Bodysnatchers” with Donald Sutherland.

  27. The Thing, was even better than first

  28. Ocean’s Eleven

  29. The House on Haunted Hill remake was pretty good

  30. The Thing, great visual effects

  31. The Crazies is a remake of the low budget 1973 original and is everything a remake should be. This creepy re-imagining contains just enough original concepts and classic tribute material to make it a fantastic film. I am not usually a fan of remakes but have to admit that this film and its team delivered.

  32. The Last House on the Left… I enjoyed some of the minor changes, like leaving the daughter alive, that made it feel more suspenseful… there was more for the characters to fight for.

  33. Poltergeist for me

  34. John Carpenter’s The Thing – returning to the source material produced a masterpiece of horror.

  35. I’m not really a fan of remakes but I loved Dawn of the Dead (zombies that run- yikes!)

  36. Mad Max was a good recent remake and won a few Oscars. Tom Hardy was brilliant.

  37. None that I can think of. So far I’ve always found the original better.

  38. I wouldn’t say better than the original, but total recall was a bit of a laugh

  39. Let Me In is the best remake i have seen

  40. Polterguiest

  41. The day the earth stood still, updated & much better

  42. No love for “Halloween”?

    I’m a big Rob Zombie fan, and I thought his take on the story was… unique. At least he made it his own, right?

  43. Carrie – Hit Girl was really good in it

  44. The ring was a good remake 🙂

  45. i agree with Carrie 😀

  46. the evil dead

  47. CAPE FEAR really chilly film and robert di niro was amazing as max cody

  48. Mad Max as it was a new take on a classic

  49. Dawn of the Dead was decent I thought.

  50. the reemake of carrie is good

  51. Dawn of the Dead. The original looks so dated compared to the remake

  52. the ring

  53. evil dead

  54. Carrie remake was better than the original- more creepier

  55. Little Shop of Horrors, The re-make into a musical was brilliant with superb casting 🙂

  56. Another one in the Poltergeist camp.

  57. i enjoyed Poltergeist

  58. I loved the Dawn of The Dead Remake, super fast zombies are so much more scary

  59. Horror fans don’t really like remakes but I’ll say The Evil Dead II.

  60. dawn of the dead remake

  61. The thing remake because it shows what happened at the Norwegian base.

  62. I loved the texas chainsaw massacre. Jumped out the chair ha

  63. The 2008 Pascal version is the best, though this isn’t far behind…..Martyrs are exceptional people 🙂

  64. total recall. loved the original but the remake is sharper

  65. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It was well close to the original.
