Review: American Mary
This review originally ran last fall during out Fantastic Fest coverage.  The film is now playing in select theaters and is available on VOD. A medical student finds tragedy, revenge, rebirth and success in the world of body modification surgery in Jen and Sylvia Soska’s bold and confident sophomore feature film effort American Mary. The bloody new thriller from the sisters who gave us Dead Hooker in a Trunk made its American premiere at Fantastic Fest last night and proved the duo have a promising future in the genre.  The film has its flaws to be sure, however, the good in American Mary far outweighs the bad.

Shock Interview: Katharine Isabelle of American Mary
ShockTillYouDrop.com recently spoke with the lovely Katharine Isabelle. The Ginger Snaps star is making another big splash on the horror scene as the titular character in the Soska Sisters’ new film American Mary (review).  Isabelle plays Mary with a dark, edgy and intoxicating flare. She effortlessly makes the role her own and has left a lasting impression on those who’ve had the opportunity to see the film. If you have yet to check it out, American Mary hits VOD May 16th with limited theatrical engagements beginning May 31st.  Ms. Isabelle gave us the lowdown on working with the up and coming directorial duo known as “The Twisted Twins,” her deep bond with the Mary character, the duality of playing both the hero and the villain, and emerging as a feminist horror icon. She was a joy to speak with and she loves swearing. Head inside for the goods.
