Storyline

Kim and her boyfriend Matt have just broken up, but they travel together to a cottage nearby a lake to spend the weekend with their friends Eve, Dash and his wife Amber and Baker and his new girlfriend Lily. The atmosphere becomes heavy with the situation between Kim and Matt, and one of them suggests them to play "Dead Mary". Matt, Eve and Dash summon the evil witch repeating her name three times in front of a mirror with a candle. Along the night, Matt hears weird noises, is killed and returns to life, while part of the group is possessed by the fiend. Without knowing who is possessed, the rest of the group fights to survive.

Did You Know?

Trivia

The script originally featured an actual Bloody Mary who, when summoned by the mirror game, rose from the depths of the lake to murder the characters one by one. Director Robert Wilson decided that it would be more interesting if the evil force was never seen, but instead could manifest itself in any one of the old friends gathered at the cabin, thus making the film more a creepy paranoia piece and less a supernatural slasher film. However, many film websites still make reference to the film's original (and now incorrect) synopsis. See more »

Goofs

In at least one point in the film, Lily's character is referred to as "Lydia." See more »

The cover art for the DVD was the highlight of this light frothy fright movie.
7 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

Yes, what the DVD cover depicts and the title of the movie are not very accurate as to what this movie is about. Still it did keep me guessing until the end where I just said to myself "what"? The movie has a reunion of a bunch of idiot waste of spacers, the people who in high school and college thought they were all that because they drank lots and lots of booze and cheat on their "loved" ones repeatedly. Ah yes, how I wanted them all dead right from the get go. This feeling of wanting them dead only increased as they talked and talked and talked, if Leatherface had shown up with his chainsaw I would have been pulling for him...the only character I liked was the younger girlfriend of one of the aforementioned losers who did not want to be there at the extremely boring yet tense reunion and I don't blame her a bit. Well the wild weekend turns really cool when they decide to play a game of Dead Mary, I am guessing because there was already a movie called bloody Mary. Well they play and from the rest of the movie on I am wondering if there was a point to the game dead Mary and if there was a reason to name the movie this. I don't know what happened after that as there was no rules established, no plot established and whatever was killing people was not established. Not that it was all bad, there was a lot of paranoia horror to go around and some good kills as well...along with that, however, there were also a lot of conjecture scenes and pointless plot points too (hey where is that Ted guy anyway?). So all in all this just was not to good of a movie, however not all bad either. At least it was well made and stuff, I have seen a couple of movies recently where you couldn't even say that. So watch out for Dead Mary!!! Though she isn't in this film much.
