American Mary

PLOT:

“Twisted Twins” Jen and Sylvia Soska are back with their stunning follow-up to the indie hit Dead Hooker in a Trunk. AMERICAN MARY is the story of a medical student named Mary who is growing increasingly broke and disenchanted with medical school and the established doctors she once idolized. The allure of easy money sends a desperate Mary through the messy world of underground surgeries which leaves more marks on her than the so-called freakish clientele. Appearances are everything.

What people are saying:

“A very interesting watch… American Mary has a few weak points, but MANY strong points. Worth a look for some great cinematography, strong main performances, and solid direction. American Mary is a bloody-good time” 4 stars

“American Mary may be very entertaining, but it also leaves viewers with plenty to dissect, right from the first word of its provocative title… one of the very best films at this year’s FrightFest, and practically guaranteed a lasting cult status.” 3 stars

“A Lot of great moments and ideas but it Never fully commits to being either a horror film or a black comedy and the direction feels aimless at times.” 3 stars

“If American Psycho could launch Christian Bale’s career, can we please see more of Katharine Isabelle after this? The subject matter and treatment of women, especially the entire culture of body modification, is done extremely well and the Soska Sisters have staked out a desperately needed perspective in horror. Now if only they had a story to match… the first half plays out like a sizzling-hot biography of an unlikely underground surgeon, then the second half turns all the promising momentum back on itself and collapses into a murderous row of dominoes. While half-baked, it’s far more interesting than the average slasher.” 2 1/2 stars

“Gore, shock factor, brutal scene that made me feel very uncomfortable. It touches on every subject to turn your stomach.” 1/2 star
