Editorial Reviews

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars American Mary Will Modify Your Soul March 14, 2013
Format:DVD
What happens when life doesn't go as planned? When the simple expectations that we set for ourselves and others fall way below acceptable standards? Many of us end up lost, wandering in a haze of confusion and misdirection that, if left unchecked, can put us on a destructive course that we may never recover from. The real world is cold, harsh, and unforgiving, though we are brought up to believe otherwise. This simple and unwavering fact lies at the core of Jen and Sylvia Soska's new film "American Mary".

Mary Mason is a medical student, a starving medical student more to the point. She is alone in the big city, trying her best to survive her schooling which brings the promise of a well-paying career. She is dedicated and enthusiastic, but also a little bit desperate. The world seems to be closing in on her from all sides, Proctors on one end and bill collectors on the other. With no other alternatives, Mary seeks a job as an exotic dancer, after all, the money's good and more importantly, immediate. Arriving at the low rent and downright seedy strip joint (say "seedy strip Joint" with a New York accent for proper effect), she meets owner Billy Barker, who might as well be wearing a shirt that says scum bucket on it, or so we assume.

Mary is an innocent, in its purest form. She brings a resume to her strip club interview, just in case he might request it. This is the first of many complexities in the film. Usually, its takes a smart and seasoned individual to bother bringing a well-maintained resume with them to a job interview (trust me, that statement is surprisingly and alarmingly true), but it takes an innocent to bring a resume to an interview at a strip club. Not to mention the fact that we have an innocent girl applying to work at a strip club in the first place.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Movie is Great September 16, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really didn't expect it to be as great as I thought it was going to be. I honestly would consider it to be a feminist horror film, as far as horror films go, and it is incredible with how it portrays body modification in terms of how it can horrify and entice the audience. There are a few moments where it feels very strange, in the scenes with the surgeons, but they're supposed to be off-putting and you're supposed to know that something is wrong with them. If you want a rape revenge film that does not sexualize violence against women while focusing entirely on how the woman responds to the rape. It does have very disturbing imagery, so if you are unable to take rape scenes at all or take images of mutilated bodies, then this probably isn't for you. If you can stomach it, it won't disappoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars "..BRILLIANT!! A MUST OWN.." March 25, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
This is one of the past years most awesome darkly disturbing horror movies, very original and well made by the Soska twins who also star in the movie, Katharine Isabelle is amazing in this film as the lead role, she plays a surgeon who has just got through medical school finding it very hard to make ends meet and gets herself through a series of messed up events becoming an underground body modifier performing unusual requests for cash among other personal vendettas, is very dark and gruesome in everyway and is a pleasure to watch, this is certainly Isabelle's greatest performance and its so good to see her get a role like this, it is scary and very entertaining to watch her, this is a must see for horror fans or anybody into this type of subject matter.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my Favorite films August 19, 2013
By S Mata
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Quick shipping and easy ordering.

I would say I am a horror movie fanatic, good or bad I watch it. When I first saw previews for this movie I was intrigued by the lead character, Mary. It seemed pretty badass for a woman to be the lead of a movie where at first (in previews) she is introduced as a slasher surgeon, but as the movie proceeds you find that she isnt some scapulae wielding psychopath, she is a victim at the hands of a instructor, and from there, well you know the saying, "hell hath no fury like a woman scorned". I would say yes, she might get out of hand on a unsuspecting security guard, but the beauty and mystery to her character is so deep.

Twisted Sister Production and Feature!!!! <3 <3 A must see for horror movie buffs.

One of the few movies that have held my attention and not had the same old formula Hollywood thinks we must have to have a hit. I'd like to meet the sisters who made this . They're my kinda freaky ladies!!

5.0 out of 5 stars bold, beeautiful and deadly November 14, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This has to be one of the best horror films I have seen in a very long time. Its original and unique and has nothing to hide. Its boldness and confident stands out from other horror films of the year. With leading Lady Katherine Isabelle (Ginger Snaps) this is a film on fire which keeps on burning. its dark humour and dark themes is what makes this film so well loved and respected.

The directors Jen and Sylvia you can tell put there heart, mind and souls in to making this film and on a very short 15 day shoot this masterpiece or horror cinema was created and was treated with love.

I wish there were more films like this the films that stand out to me are ones that are not afraid to be differenta nd are not scared to go outside the norms of horror cinema which this one bravely does.

a 10/10 hands down
