A brand new clip has been released in preparation of the DVD & Blu-ray released of American Mary. The film see’s Jen and Sylvia Soska, AKA The Twisted Twins, return to horror after their directorial debut, Dead Hooker in a Trunk.
American Mary has become something of a horror phenomenon, winning awards and all kinds of praise in its reviews, it is definitely NOT a horror film to be missed. With the film arriving here in the UK on DVD & Blu-ray this coming Monday, fans should check out the below clip for a taste of the nasty things to come. The clip features the Soska Sisters about to go under the knife, and lovingly holding hands as they go under anesthetic. Katharine Isabelle, who stars as Mary, is the one about to perform the surgery with another Doctor who seems a little suspicious!
American Mary arrives in limited UK cinemas on 11th January 2013, and then arrives on DVD and Blu-ray on 21st January.
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.
