5.0 out of 5 stars Innovative and fresh horror 11 Jan 2013
Format:Blu-ray
Mary Mason is an ambitious and focused medical student who is down her luck. Growing increasingly more broke, she desperately needs money and hits rock bottom when she applies to work at a strip club. During the sleazy interview, the club owner asks for her medical expertise when one of his associates is severely injured for an astronomical amount of money in cash. Of course, she performs the illegal surgery and feels sickened, but happy for the money. Later on, Beatress Johnson, a performer from the strip club who looks just like Betty Boop, approaches Mary for a business proposition involving extreme body modification. She refuses at first to focus on her studies, but after being traumatized and alienated by the teacher she truly admired and the medical field as a whole, she assents and throws herself full force into the dark and sometimes bizarre world of illegal body modification.

I have been itching to see American Mary since Jen and Sylvia Soska's panel from last year's San Diego Comic Con. I finally got the chance when the film was featured at LA's Screamfest and subsequently won most of the awards there, including best picture, best director, best actress, best makeup, and best cinematography The plot and execution of this film is more unique than the majority of the horror films I've seen over the last year. It's truly a breath of fresh air among all the remakes and sequels with twists, turns, and shocking moments. It subverts expectations at every turn and avoids the typical formulaic horror for an unpredictable plot that kept me guessing what would happen. For a movie about surgery, the use of blood and gore is quite restrained and the entire film is beautifully shot. I expected buckets upon buckets of blood, especially after Dead Hooker in a Trunk.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really great film! 20 Jan 2013
By Seb28
Format:Blu-ray
I'll readily admit that i'm not a big fan of gore and horror, but the subject matter of American Mary intruigied me. After watching a trailer, reading a few reviews and friend wanting to see it with someone, I bit the bullet and watched it. Boy am I glad i did! It surpassed my expectations and even though there is a lot of blood, it didn't take away from my enjoyment of the film.

If you're looking for something a bit different that you can really sink your teeth into, all the while feeling a bit uneasy throughout, then this is definitely worth checking out.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb film 29 Dec 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film has restored some faith for me in the dwindling quality of the horror market. Visually a very stunning film for me, slick and exciting. It has the knack of making you want to look away whilst having to keep your eyes locked on the action, and as a fair amount of the gore is implied it leaves a lot up to you and your imagination - for me often scarier than having it laid out for all to see. Definitely a favourite for me and I would safely say for most horror buffs out there looking for something new and refreshing.

I agree with all the positive reviews. My only personal gripe was the strangely flat ending. It felt like a few things got rushed... and I don't mean the loose ends that remained unanswered.
It just felt like they edited out maybe five minutes of lead-up to the final scene - like they were over-budget or under time constraints?
However, as Lucky McKee showed with The Woman, you can create a brilliant low-to-mid budget "indie horror" movie and get the pacing and story arc delivered perfectly.
American Mary just needed a bit more of a lead-up to the final scenes. Sorry I can't be more specific but I don't want to give away any spoilers!
Well worth purchasing for the collection and giving it at least one more watch, but frustratingly an "almost-classic" for me.

Hitting the same tongue-in-cheek marks as Teeth, Bad Biology and Frankenhooker, albeit with a better class of performer and a slicker look than these slightly kitsch body-horror movies, American Mary is a pro-feminist splatter-gore movie for lovers of the Frankenstein myth, with an extra dose of John Waters-style black humour running through it.

Fans of extreme body modification, piercing and tattooing will love this... It's made with a passion for the subject even if the results are horrific. The is a movie that delves into the world where the participants take altering themselves into another realm. Doll-like human barbies who want their nipples removed to give them perfect plastic looking breasts, obsessive Betty Boop fans who'll do anything to get the look they desire. Not to mention a twisted doctor who wronged the central character and ends up being a test subject for Mary's darkest experiments.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised! 21 Jan 2013
Format:Blu-ray
I went to see this film with some friends of mine who are proper horror buffs and I was initially a little reluctant as it didn't look like my cup of tea. But yeah as I said, I was really surprised how engrossing it actually was! My friends loved this obviously but I thought it was fantastic too. It plays out much more like a serious drama as opposed to a gore-fest which was refreshing. In fact, some of my female friends spoke about aspects of the film that I completely overlooked - the more feminist parts that looking back on make perfect sense now.

This is genuinely much more than a standard horror affair and I can't wait to see what the directors do next.

Highly recommended!!
