American Mary - Preview & competition
Preview by Jack Foley
THE first ladies of horror, Twisted Twins Jen and Sylvia Soska, team up with the thinking person’s scream queen, Katharine Isabelle, to bring you American Mary.
Hot off it’s UK theatrical tour, American Mary comes to DVD and Blu-ray on January 21, 2013.
Mary (Isabelle) is an increasingly broke medical student who, in her efforts to make ends meet, becomes drawn into the world of underground surgery and body modification with shocking results.
Struggling to make financial ends meet while studying to be a surgeon, talented medical student Mary Mason (Katharine Isabelle) finds herself reduced to applying for work at a local strip joint in order to pay off her mounting debts. During her interview, she is unexpectedly called upon to perform some illegal emergency surgery on one of the club’s clients and is instantly rewarded with a significant cash payment.
Word of Mary’s scalpel-work soon reaches one of the club’s dancers, Beatress Johnson (Tristan Risk), who approaches her offering to pay handsomely for some off-the-books, extreme body-modification work on a friend. The ensuing surgery is a huge success and Mary’s skills soon attract the attention of an underground network of high-paying clientele, all looking for someone to administer procedures and body-mod work unavailable through the usual legal channels.
However, the allure of the easy money and the increasingly bizarre work she is commissioned to perform begins to leave a mark on Mary, and when an incident involving the established surgeons she once idolized leaves her traumatised, “Bloody Mary”, as she has come to be known, responds in the only way she knows how.
