I don't use the term torture porn because I think it's beyond stupid. Too many people use it for just about any horror film with violence(which all rated R horror films have)now days.
With that being said, I do agree with you georgec, that Martyrs is a **** film. Violence like that doesn't gross me out, it was just a lame film. So this woman and her cult are torturing people to the point of death just to see if there eyes look up and to the right...which means they are staring at the tunnel of light to heaven.
Also, at the end of the film, they put up a definition of the word Martyr, the french must have a different definition of it, because what it said on the screen from what I remember, was Not what a martyr, is or means.
