American Mary - A Twisted Twins production (Katharine Isabelle)



Canadian horror/thriller, written, directed and produced by the Soska sisters ("Dead Hooker in a Trunk"), starring Katharine Isabelle ("Ginger Snaps") as Mary.

"Mary is a medical student 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."

The film has gotten very good reviews at different (horror) film festivals in Europe, Canada and the US. I hope it gets a wider release.


Official Trailer: (NSFW)

Caught this at last year's Toronto After Dark and enjoyed it immensely. It's a little too long, but Isabelle's performance is great and the Soska's are terrific writers/directors.

Here's my review of the film:

And, here's my interview with the Twisted Twins:

DVDTalk review:

I saw it on UK DVD, and I pretty much agree with Addi88 and the above review. The film is too long and I found the second half uneven and meandering. Still, Katharine Isabelle's performance manages to keep everything together and gore hounds should enjoy it.

Since I'm not that generous, I give it *** / *****

katherine isabelle is gorgeous in this and wears next to nothing in most scenes (but still doesn't show anything). the movie isn't very good though.
