Martha Marcy May Marlene pits the Catskills Against Connecticut

In terms of scary movies, the big money went to Paranormal Activity 3 this weekend, but the smaller, quieter Martha Marcy May Marlene got better reviews, at least according to Metacritic. It's not quite an apples-to-apples comparison. Martha Marcy May Marlene isn't your typical scary movie. There's nothing paranormal about it, and there's no menacing slasher with a butcher knife picking off teens one by one. Instead, its scares are psychological.

Articles Editor Marisa LaScala joined Westchester Magazine in 2003, and ever since she's blown every paycheck at the Greenburgh Multiplex. She also staunchly defends Richard Kelly, doesn't mind spoiling the endings of trashy movies you're curious about but don't want to pay to see, wishes the Hold Steady would come and rock out Westchester, misses Arrested Development more than anyone can imagine, and still watches cartoons and Saturday Night Live.
