Jen and Sylvia Soska's American Mary
was one of the more exciting discoveries of 2012, throwing a sexy spotlight on the otherwise shady world of body modification and backstreet surgeries. Katharine Isabelle (Ginger Snaps
) is fantastic as the titular medical student, forced into moonlighting due to mounting college debts, only to discover that her new identity as a corsetted, scalpel-wielding fixer is infinitely more gratifying and titillating than coping with her sleazy professors. The film, and its rampaging twin sister directors, took FrightFest by storm earlier this year, before doing the same in Austin, TX at Fantastic Fest and embarking on a globe-trotting festival tour that saw the film rake in the awards.
American Mary will enjoy a limited theatrical release in the UK on 11 January ahead of hitting Blu-ray and DVD on 21 January. Empire Online has an exclusive on the UK trailer, which shows a little more of the plot than I would personally have revealed, while not quite capturing just how sexy and fun this film is, but certainly won't hurt your enjoyment of the film. Isabelle in particular deserves high praise indeed, while the Soskas vault over the "difficult second feature" hurdle (after Dead Hooker in a Trunk) and now have everyone's attention.
