Making waves across the web is the first trailer for Martha Marcy May Marlene, which Sean Durkin won “best director” out of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.
Being that the film will be released by Fox Searchlight (on July 10), I’m sure the “horror” elements of the “cult drama” will be quite minimal, therefore our coverage will reflect that.
With that said, my best friend was born out of a cult. No, I’m not joking. Scary stuff. Starring Elizabeth Olsen, Sarah Paulson and John Hawkes, it’s quite terrifying knowing that Martha Marcy May Marlene is something that actually happens in this world. Real life terror. While it may be pegged as a drama, it’s impossible to ignore just how haunting this trailer is.
Olsen was the talk of Sundance starring as a damaged woman, haunted by painful memories and increasing paranoia, who struggles to re-assimilate with her family after fleeing an abusive cult.
Watch the trailer inside and see what I mean. Kind of hard not to cover. No?
