Blu-ray and DVD Specs and Artwork for Martha Marcy May Marlene

Post Thumb:


One movie we’ve been a bit hit or miss in our coverage of is Sean Durkin’s Martha Marcy May Marlene, mainly because we’re just not sure how genre-related it really is. But come February 21st we’ll all be able to judge for ourselves as the film hits DVD and Blu-ray courtesy of 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.

From the Press Release:
From 2011 Sundance Film Festival “Best Director” winner Sean Durkin, in his feature film debut, and featuring breakout star Elizabeth Olsen in her “Best Female Lead” Film Independent Spirit Award nominated role, MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE arrives on Blu-ray and DVD February 21, 2012.

After escaping from a dangerous cult and the watchful eye of its charismatic leader, a young woman named Martha (Olsen) tries to reclaim a normal life with her family. But the haunting memories from Martha’s past trigger a chilling paranoia — and nowhere seems safe as the fragile line between her reality and delusions begin to blur.

Supported by unforgettable powerhouse performances from Academy Award nominee John Hawkes (Winter’s Bone, American Gangster) and Sarah Paulson (Down With Love, What Women Want), the MARTHA MARCY MARY MARLENE Blu-ray and DVD are rich with special features, including “Mary Last Seen,” the chilling short film by writer/director Durkin that started it all.

I'll see you on the other side...

  • Terminal

    It’s not horror at all. It’s a drama thriller with heavy emphasis on drama. It’s not even remotely scary. Just a bit tense in some moments. Just curious but if you’re not sure how horror related it is why not check with the news editor and do research on it?

    Are you guys looking for ways to broaden your movie coverage by sneaking stuff like this in or is there no news editor? I’d definitely check before posting this on a horror site, just saying.

    • The Woman In Black

      We’re hardly sneaking it in – we’ve done several stories on MMMM already. And we’ve done research – watched the trailers, read reviews, etc. – and the consensus is that yeah, it’s fringy, but there are enough “psychological thriller” elements to warrant our covering it on occasion. But this will probably be our last story since it’s now heading to home video.
