American Mary (2012)
Director: Jen Soska, Sylvia Soska
Main Stars: Katherine Isabelle, Antonio Cupo, Tristan Risk
Storyline: A medical student needs cash she gets into the body modification business which leads to a darker side of life.
Review (Spoils): Mary Manson (Katherine Isabelle) is beautiful and smart but she just cannot make ends meet and she has the eye of her teacher Mr. Grant. This leads to her to become a stripper but someone needed underground medical attention and she becomes the new surgeon for the underground strip joint. During all this she gets invited to a surgeon gala which leads to Mr. Grant drugging and raping her which brings out the Bloody Mary part of Mary(she gets her revenge on him). She gets a strange call from a plastic looking lady named Beatress (Tristan Risk )which leads Mary to become also a underground body modification surgeon for the freaks of the land.
We got lots of the blood, stitching, stabbings, knife cuts, scars, weird body modification and even some nasty body hooks. This is not for the weak as there is some weird scenes but at the same time they are quick. Too be honest the drug and rape scene is more unsettling.
Katherine Isabelle blesses the horror screen again with her beauty and her great acting. She plays the snarky, smart yet a tad psycho very well known character as Mary. Antonio Cupo also does a great job playing the sleazy owner of the strip joint and who also has a strange attraction to Mary (who can blame him really).
Rating: This film reminded me of May which is a good thing. It was different and it did not rely on torture which many films now fall under and it can be boring. The storyline and the characters were interesting which held my full attention. Plus we have sexy Katherine Isabelle in black stockings and also gracing the screen with blood what more can I really ask?
