We don't know what's weirder: This creepy international trailer for "American Mary." Or the fact that this demented horror flick was written, directed and produced by twin sisters from Canada. Okay, it's a tie. In filmmakers Jen and Sylvia Soska's much-buzzed-about horror movie, Ginger Snaps' Katherine Isabelle plays a former medical student who goes a little baseball-bat crazy after being seduced into an underground world of extreme body surgery. Body horror aplenty!
"American Mary" will be released in the UK, starting in January. It's also expected to hit the States and Canada sometime in 2013.
After giving the world DEAD HOOKER IN A TRUNK, the irrepressible Soska sisters unleash AMERICAN MARY. Starring Katharine Isabelle (GINGER SNAPS), this metaphor for the Soskas own journey through the independent film industry follows medical student Mary Mason as she becomes increasingly broke and disenchanted. The allure of easy money sends Mary into the twilight world of body modification and underground surgeries where obsessed flesh artists will pay anything and go through any pain to get their unusual procedures done. But Mary soon finds that her new 'profession' leaves more marks on her own psyche than on her freakish clientele.
