American Mary Reviews

Page 1 of 3
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
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...
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
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 17, 2013
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
May 31, 2013
A mindless exercise in sadism that's neither scary nor a guilty pleasure.
Full Review | Original Score: 5.0/10
May 31, 2013
Try as the sisters might, American Mary is neither scary or funny.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
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.
May 31, 2013
Writer-director siblings Jen and Sylvia Soska allow their film to turn slack and unfocused after an enticingly lurid, wickedly tense first half.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
May 31, 2013
It's a truly interesting slasher fest; in this one, the heroine gets to be both beauty and beast.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
May 30, 2013
Combines gore, quiet dread, feminist conviction and a visual classicism, often using a red palette, with impressive, unbelabored dexterity.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
