Tough as nails Midwest thriller with Sons of Anarchy alumni out in July

08/06/2017

Monster Pictures is releasing the new thriller Let Me Make you a Martyr July 19. The film starring a powerful cast in Marilyn Manson, Mark Boone Junior, Niko Nicotera and Sam Quartin will be available on Blu-ray and DVD.

Written and directed by Corey Asraf and John Swab Let Me Make You a Martyr brings together a host of taboo subjects in its grimy, barbed and bleak Midwest setting. Drew Glass (Nicotera from Sons of Anarchy) returns home after some time in self-imposed exile to reunite with the love of his life, his adopted sister June (Quartin) and to confront those that have wronged him.
Together they hatch a plan to rid the world of their abusive crime boss father Larry (Boone Jr) who refuses to let June leave. Drew, however, doesn't realise he himself is being hunted by the enigmatic Pope (Manson) on the orders of Larry after he has discovered their scheme to murder him.

The bloody romance, at once a cerebral take on familial disorder on boondocks might partner well as a double with Killer Joe. In addition to the sibling love, Let Me Make you a Martyr also deals with child abuse, rape and murder.

Kat Hughes of The Hollywood News calls it, “A stunningly captured, well-written revenge drama that hides a host of surprises behind strong powerhouse performances.”

Horror journal Bloody Disgusting calls it a “dense frightening revenge tale.”
