A Few Interesting Ideas but Too Many Loose Ends
29 April 2011 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Mary, Mary, Bloody Mary (1975)

** (out of 4)

Forgotten Mexican horror film about an American painter named Mary (Cristina Ferrare) who is living in Mexico where she sells her works and also kills people for their blood. It turns out Mary is a vampire but not the traditional one with fangs. Since she has no fangs she must stab or slash the throats of her victims but soon she has a new man (David Young) in her life as well as a mysterious man (John Carradine) in black who appears to be doing the same type of murders. The term "less would have been more" certainly applied to this film because somewhere in this mess there's a good movie but sadly the direction is so poor and the film goes off in so many directions that you can't help but loose focus on the majority of everything going on. If you read the film details you're going to be reminded of George Romero's MARTIN, which would follow a few years later and it's pretty fair to say that the Romero film is a remake of this, although it's certainly much better done with many of the weak points left out. The film's screenplay never really makes anything clear including what's going on with Mary. We never really learn why she has no fangs or why she needs the blood at all. We never figure out why she keeps this guy in her life when he could have made another victim. There's a lesbian art seller who comes in then out of the movie without too much explanation. Even worse is that the film runs an incredibly overlong 91-minutes and while so much plot is left missing we get other scenes that just drag out for no reason. There's one sequence where a woman is hitchhiking yet it takes nearly two-minutes worth of screen time before she finally gets in the car where the action then starts. Why on Earth did they drag this out so much? The entire time of her waiting to get in the car adds nothing to the film other than the extended running time. Those wanting gory violence will probably have a smile on their face after the first murder, which is quite graphic as Mary is having sex with a man only to then cut his throat and out comes the red stuff. This first murder has a ton of gore in it but from this point on the murders become less gruesome and there are a few where no blood is shown. Those wanting nudity will find some here but it's mostly un-erotic stuff including the bit where the lesbian finally gets Mary in the bathtub. Ferrare isn't too bad in the role of Mary but she certainly can't compare with previous female vampires from the 70s. Carradine only appears in a few scenes as he apparently left the film before shooting was complete, which means we get a much younger stunt double running around with a cape over his face. MARY, MARY, BLOODY MARY has some very interesting ideas but sadly none of them ever come together. There's way too many dry spots but I'm sure with a little editing this thing could have been a little better. Romero's MARTIN certainly got the job done much better.
