The Soska Sisters channel their inner Cronenberg for the bizarre, sadistic and oddly hilarious body modification horror film American Mary.
Ginger Snaps' Katharine Isabelle turns in an incredibly impressive performance that completely transforms by the end of the film. Only a few short years after Dead Hooker In A Trunk it's amazing to see how much The Soska Sisters have matured and advanced as filmmakers. The story unfolds at a smooth pace, the camerawork is quite nice and the lighting breathes life into the black & red color palate. This twisted little film isn't for everybody but will certainly find a well-deserved dedicated audience.
