Product Description

One of the year’s most horrific highlights, American Mary tells the story of broke student Mary Mason (Katharine Isabelle) who grows disenchanted with medical school and the doctors she once idolised. The allure of easy money sends a desperate Mary through the gruesome world of underground surgeries but soon finds they leave more marks on her than the so-called freakish clientele... Smart, sexy, funny and utterly gorgeous to look at, American Mary features a standout lead performance from horror icon Katherine (Ginger Snaps) Isabelle, and puts the Soska Sisters, aka the Twisted Twins, squarely at the forefront of modern horror filmmaking. Unmissable.

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.

Medical school student who is broke sees an ad for a dancer in a sleazy nightclub but whilst she is there she is offered 5k by the owner of the club to stitch up a guy he's just smashed in. Slowly she is drawn into a world of people that see her talent and know they can underground for different and odd surgeries. As a sub plot Mary is drug raped by her School teacher and from that instant changes. She becomes one bad girl- making sure she gets revenge on her rapist which she does big time. The movie has been shot really well and lead actress Mary played by Katharine Isabelle is nothng short of stunning! Interestingly enough there is little violence or gore to be seen for the first hour but the movie really gets dark and violent in the final third. It's a wel told story by it is at times lagged down. The whole 180 degree turn, Med school teachers on 100k plus a year raping students and thinking they can get away with it? Really? The night club thrives with 3 customers a night, more extras were needed. The movie needed to be padded out a little too, it was that enjoyable that an extra 20 mins or so of character development would have been fine. Some will say this is just turns into I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE and sure there are elements here but if so it's still 100 times better than that trash, nice soundtrack too. The only problem is that it feels gappy, like something is missing, but considering it's an Indie movie this is throughly enjoyable.

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.

If you were drawn by the plot of the film then I'd suggest buying it or getting hold of a copy to have a watch.

It had me gripped for the opening 30-45 mins as the plot started unfolding, but then it started tapering off and I began losing interest in it. Worth a watch and Katherine Isabelle player her role very well, the support cast was a bit questionable at times but did reasonably OK.

Would recommend this if sold by the plot as I was...

Forget what you think you know about the Soska sisters (aka the Twisted Twins) after their niche cult horror-comedy debut DEAD HOOKER IN A TRUNK. Their second feature film, AMERICAN MARY, is shocking to the core. Darkly funny, tragic and ultimatley horrific, AMERICAN MARY is the evolution of a couple of film-makers who have matured immensely in such a short space of time. The biggest surprise of the year and an instant horror classic.
