Did You Know?


The original screenplay was called Bloody Mary. The title was cleared in every territory except Japan, where the name Bloody Mary is copyrighted, and it was suggested that the title be changed to Dead Mary for release in that country alone. When the film's producers discovered that another film, also called Bloody Mary, was being readied for release around the same time, it was decided that the film's title be officially changed to Dead Mary in order to avoid confusion. This spawned an inside joke in the finished film, when the better-known game Bloody Mary is dismissed as being "the lame version" of Dead Mary. See more »


As the girl (Amber) is about to burn her possessed boyfriend in the shed, she turns back in to the shed from the rain - from a face dripping with water to dry skin within a few seconds and proceeds to light a match taken from a box that was equally doused with heavy rain water moments before.

Baker: You just drove a fucking shovel through your boyfriends head, Kim! Who knows? Maybe Zombie Matt will piece himself back together, and come back up to the house. What would you do then, huh Kim?
Kim: [weakly] Fuck you...
Baker: Maybe he'll crawl into your bed. And for old time's sake, maybe you'll let him.
Kim: You're disgusting...

Ummm, yeah, that was dead lame.
24 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let me start by saying that I understand the premise of the movie, and where they where trying to go with it. But they did a horrible job with it. There was so much wrong with the movie, it over shadows any good that there was, making it slim pickings. The story idea, was a rehash of the same old 'bunch of young adults at a camp ground for the weekend'. But they did put in some originality with the whole dead Mary thing. Yeah, it's the same as bloody Mary, and has been done, but still. And doing in the form of a dark psychological thriller rather than the normal monster or gore hound flick was a great idea. But that is the end of it.

The acting was OK at best, but none of the characters had any sort of personality that actually stood out, or made you remember them. They where all the same with different names.

And there are just so many questions, and inconsistencies that it completely ruined the movie, forcing you into a totally confused viewer. We went from a very long and drawn out beginning, that was more like a show of General Hospital than a movie, to people chanting Dead Mary in the mirror, to zombies, then possession (I think?). And they kept babbling about being infected when they where alone...?? Huh? The biggest pet peeve I had was the filming. Like I said, I understand what they where trying to do, with a dark psychological thriller, but the film lighting was absolutely horrible. It looks like somebody took their hand held camcorder outside in the woods, with nothing but moonlight, and filmed the movie. 85% of the time your pausing the movie trying to figure out what character is on the screen. Finally you just give up, hoping that they will do or say something so you know what is going on. I even turned all the lights off in the house wondering if maybe that would help, and I still could barely tell what was going on. And the only way you could really tell the characters apart was what they looked like, considering the lack of personality. So needless to say, who's talking, who's tied up, and who's running around in the rain is totally lost.

So, what or who is Dead Mary? What is the deal with the drops of blood in the bathroom? Or the guy sleeping on the couch who is the first killed. Why are the killed characters coming back as Zombies, and why does that other guy beat the crap out of, and hack up the zombie looking for answers. Answers to what? And why is it, after he beats the crap out of the zombie, and tears it's face apart, it is totally healed and back to normal moments later when it's wife comes to see it. I assume she died in the fire? Where did the bearded guy and the two ladies go off into the woods, leaving the other two at the house? Where did they go? What is up with the ending, and what happened to the girl, who was apparently possessed by dead Mary? Oh yeah, and where is everybody else in the town to begin with? And who the hell is Ted, and where is he? Uggg, it was just way to rushed. If they took the time to actually lay down the story, and filmed it better, maybe the questions above could actually be answered. You can always assume the answers though, and fill in the blanks yourself if that helps. Otherwise it all adds up to one huge and very boring movie.
