The feature film debut for filmmakers Corey Asraf and John Swab, Let Me Make You a Martyr is a gritty crime thriller taking place in a small town. The grimy world of the film full of drug addicts, child kidnappers and smooth talking hitmen. Drew Glass is desperate to escape the clutches of his adoptive father Larry and start a new life with June. However, with Pope on his tail, this might not be an easy task to accomplish.
Let Me Make You a Martyr is a fairly average crime thriller that is elevated by an excellent and unrecognizable performance by shock rocker Marilyn Manson. While Pope is far from the main character, appearing in only a handful of scenes, Manson ends up stealing every minute that he is on screen. Let Me Make You a Martyr is also notable for its excellent camera work, which makes it appear like a more expensive film that it really is. Overall, Let Me Make You a Martyr is a fine enough debut from Corey Asraf and John Swab.
