With a bit of body horror mixed in, the Soska Sisters have offered a decidedly different horror perspective in the rape-revenge sub-genre.
October 20, 2018
The Soska Twins show a lot of depth in their filmmaking, producing an intriguing movie that you can't take your eyes off of.
August 23, 2018
Isabelle rightly steals the show courtesy of her smouldering and deranged central performance, remaining charming throughout despite the horrors she ultimately commits.

If AMERICAN MARY has flaws-which I'm sure it does-they're dwarfed. I was having such a good time, I chose to ignore them. Hell, some of my best, most beautiful and interesting friends are flawed. That's what makes them so unforgettable.
August 24, 2015
One of the strangest, darkest, and most confident "female-centric" horror flicks in quite some time.
November 25, 2013
A sensational opening makes the disappointing final act hurt all the more as American Mary falls in a heap in its final act.
November 12, 2013
Katharine Isabelle dominates the screen from the minute we meet her, and delivers a masterful performance.
July 2, 2013
The almost excessively uneven narrative does, in the end, cancel out the effectiveness of the film's positive attributes...
June 27, 2013
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."
June 14, 2013
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.
June 12, 2013
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.
June 3, 2013
Creepy, perverted, disgusting fright flick filled with horrific imagery.
May 31, 2013
A mindless exercise in sadism that's neither scary nor a guilty pleasure.
May 31, 2013
Try as the sisters might, American Mary is neither scary or funny.
May 31, 2013
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.
May 31, 2013
Given its many failings, nothing short of an extreme makeover could save American Mary. Scalpel, please.
May 31, 2013
American Mary is the newest addition to a long list of horror films about disturbed and disturbing doctors,and it's a worthy one.
May 31, 2013
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.
May 31, 2013
The filmmakers certainly exaggerate (i.e. exploit) their subject, but for a community that prides itself on shock value, there seems no sufficient alternative.
May 31, 2013
This is truly a cut above.
