[ Movie Page: American Mary (2013) ] American Mary (2012)

Jen Soska (ABCs of Death 2, See No Evil 2, WiH Massive Blood Drive PSA 2013) and Sylvia Soska (Independent Cat, Bad Girls, Dead Hooker in a Trunk) are two twin sisters who are the writers and directors who also starred in American Mary (2012). Sylvia and Jen are referred to as Twin #1 and Twin #2 and their characters have a serious creep factor. They want the unmentionable done to them on the operating table and I was like “oh really, that can really be done?” The twins did a great job with their creepy roles.

American Mary is about a medical student, Mary Mason (Katharine Isabelle - See No Evil 2, Torment, The Spirit Game, Victims) is studying to become a doctor. Mary is doing a great job in class but is having financial difficulties. She went for an interview at a strip club and soon started her side career which she earns a lot of money from. The manager Billy Barker (Antonio Cupo - In My Dreams, Anita B., Bomb Girls) at the strip club offers Mary $5,000 to save someone’s life from dying. Mary accepts this one time job and soon develops a clientele. I could not believe one of the things a client asked Mary to do to her female body parts, all in the name so man would not be attracted to her for her body parts.

Mary soon enters her internship at a hospital where she is invited by a group of doctors to a party for only doctors. The doctors planned this event and it is a routine for them to do with a lot of females from the internship program at the hospital. They soon realize that they have messed with the wrong girl but it was a little too late. Dr. Grant (David Lovgren - Stonehenge Apocalypse, Stargate: Atlantis, Girlfriend Experience) took part in drugging and raping Mary and pays the price by having her mutilate him piece by piece while also having him hang by the skin on his back that has two hooks in them. This movie made me think about; can a humans skin really be that strong?

American Mary contains nude scenes, violence, gore, bad language, and lots of surgeries that make people feel good about themselves. I will not watch American Mary again. I basically watched it because of all the good reviews I read about it. During the whole movie, I kept on waiting for the suspense, action, the good part of the movie but the movie ended and I would not really see why there is so much hype about American Mary. I felt this movie could have been better if it had more exciting thrills and some sort of suspense. I understand that the movie is about a normal average honest girl who went to the dark side because of money trouble and then also because of being raped and she wanted the ultimate revenge. But I thought there were going to be scare factors, suspense and frightening scenes.


The allure of easy money sends Mary Mason, a medical student, into the world of underground surgeries...
