Shit Worth Checking Out: Debut trailer for Martha Marcy May Marlene.

Yesterday, Fox Searchlight debuted the first trailer for their Sundance hit Martha Marcy May Marlene, written and directed by Sean Durkin, a first-timer.  Durkin took home the Dramatic Directing Award at Sundance for his efforts.  The film stars Elizabeth Olsen (the seemingly talented sister of the unjustifiably famous Olsen Twins) as a "damaged woman" who flees from a cult and tries to reassimilate with her family.  Fresh off his Best Supporting Actor Oscar nod for Winter's Bone, John Hawkes plays the cult leader and appears to be at his creepy-best.  Loved him on Deadwood, and glad to see him making the most out of the indie roles he secures.  Check out the trailer below!

Martha Marcy May Marlene will be released in limited theaters (of course) on October 7th.  Looks frickin unsettling, but I'm there.
