The Soska Sisters follow up to their awesome debut horror, Dead Hooker in a Trunk is the quite brilliant looking American Mary. The film has been getting praise all over the horror community, and personally I cannot wait to see this nasty looking classic.
The film arrives in limited UK cinemas on 11th January 2013, and then arrives on DVD and Blu-ray on 21st January, and in celebration of the films arrival in the UK, a brand new full length trailer has been unleashed. Empire got the exclusive, and I am so happy to be sharing such a stunning trailer with you below.
The new trailer features plenty of star Katharine Isabelle looking sexy as hell, and there is plenty of nasty scenes and bloodshed. Basically, this trailer is one of the finest horror trailers I have seen for quite sometime, and no doubt the film will deliver as promised. The trailer also features a number of quotes and ratings from reviews, proving that this horror will be awesome!
Simultaneously beautiful, repulsive, shocking and endearing, Jen & Sylvia Soska’s brilliantly original and thought-provoking exploration into the depths of tattoo and body modification subculture is undoubtedly one of the must-see horrors of our time. Featuring a career-best lead performance by Katherine Isabelle (Being Human; Ginger Snaps) in the title role, ‘American Mary’ seduced audiences at this year’s Film4 Frightfest, being heralded as “Absolutely superb” (Ain’t It Cool) and simply “Unforgettable” (Fangoria).
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, where 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, 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.
