American Mary Reviews

Richard Haridy

A sensational opening makes the disappointing final act hurt all the more as American Mary falls in a heap in its final act.

Katharine Isabelle dominates the screen from the minute we meet her, and delivers a masterful performance.

The almost excessively uneven narrative does, in the end, cancel out the effectiveness of the film's positive attributes...

Alt horror about a Seattle surgery drop-out is a mediocre specimen of the Canadian kinky flesh genre of "Antiviral," "Crash" and "Kissed." End credits say "For Eli Roth."

Watching Mary's unpleasant journey is intriguing and each character having identifiable quirks is a strong point, but unfortunately American Mary isn't really anything all that special otherwise.

Sexy and delightfully deadpan, Katharine Isabelle absolutely kills it as loner med student Mary, so passionate about perfecting her surgical skills that she spends her evenings suturing turkey flesh.

Alternately creepy and languid, incisive and aimless, American Mary examines a provocative subject, heralding the duo as a couple of the genre's next great voices - that is, as soon as their follow-through proves as strong as their set-up.

Creepy, perverted, disgusting fright flick filled with horrific imagery.

A mindless exercise in sadism that's neither scary nor a guilty pleasure.

Try as the sisters might, American Mary is neither scary or funny.

Writer-directors Jen and Sylvia Soska don't seem to have their material completely under control, but they've created a worthy entry in the Freaks school of cult cinema.

Given its many failings, nothing short of an extreme makeover could save American Mary. Scalpel, please.

American Mary is the newest addition to a long list of horror films about disturbed and disturbing doctors,and it's a worthy one.

Filmmakers display a burgeoning talent that should be exciting to watch develop in future endeavors, especially if they stick close to the beat of their black hearts, eschewing the temptation of screenwriting templates.

The filmmakers certainly exaggerate (i.e. exploit) their subject, but for a community that prides itself on shock value, there seems no sufficient alternative.

Writer-director siblings Jen and Sylvia Soska allow their film to turn slack and unfocused after an enticingly lurid, wickedly tense first half.

It's a truly interesting slasher fest; in this one, the heroine gets to be both beauty and beast.

American Mary simply reveals itself as a film with little on its mind, content to scare rubberneckers into contemplating the backstory of the more outlandish body manipulation jobs they've seen in public. A documentary would have sufficed.

Combines gore, quiet dread, feminist conviction and a visual classicism, often using a red palette, with impressive, unbelabored dexterity.
