International Trailer and New Poster for Martha Marcy May Marlene

The title to this film is practically a tongue twister on its own, seriously just try saying the title five times fast in a row, but damn if this film doesn’t look interesting as hell. Hopefully if it does well at the box office, the film will get a wider release.

If you’ve never heard of the film until now, the film is a psychological thriller that stars Elizabeth Olsen, the younger sister to those former “Full House” cuties Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. In the film, Elizabeth Olsen plays Martha, a young woman rapidly unraveling amidst her attempt to reclaim a normal life after fleeing from a cult and its charismatic leader (John Hawkes). Seeking help from her estranged older sister Lucy (Sarah Paulson) and brother-in-law (Hugh Dancy), Martha is unable and unwilling to reveal the truth about her disappearance. When her memories trigger a chilling paranoia that her former cult could still be pursuing her, the line between Martha’s reality and delusion begins to blur.

Opening in theaters on a limited release in the U.S. on October 21, you can view the trailer below which comes via Empire:
