Poster Debut: Martha Marcy May Marlene

Sean Durkin‘s slow-burn psychological thriller Martha Marcy May Marlene caused quite a stir at Sundance back in January, and has wowed Australian audiences at the Sydney and Melbourne Film Festivals. A bunch of appropriately unsettling posters have debuted online ahead of its proper release.

Elizabeth Olson stars as Martha (or Marcy May, or Marlene), a young woman who escapes from a strange commune led by the enigmatic Patrick (John Hawkes). In the weeks and months following her exit, traumatic memories she had once blocked out come flooding back, and she grows increasingly concerned that Patrick is still watching her every move. The Oscar buzz has already begun for these two fine actors – expect it to be a deafening roar by January next year.

Unfortunately, Martha Marcy May Marlene doesn’t hit Australian cinemas until January 19, 2012. In the meantime, you can read our review here, or check out the trailer.

Discuss: Do these posters entice you?
