In terms of horror, 2012 was a woeful year, particularly within the mainstream, with only the likes of Cabin In The Woods and Sinister being genuinely effective in releasing the fear (and fun) from the genre. However, with festivals such as London’s FrightFest and Manchester’s GrimmFest giving fans the chance to view many impressive upcoming efforts, one that stood out from most was Jen and Sylvia Soska’s American Mary (read our review Here), the follow-up to their exploitation effort, Dead Hooker In A Trunk.
The film sees Ginger Snaps actress, Katharine Isabelle, give a memorable performance as Mary Mason, a young medical student pushed to the limit when keeping up with the demands of her dream profession. She chooses a path involving some unique individuals, and things take a turn for the worse when a horrific altercation spirals into tormented territory.
