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.

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 12, 2013
Katharine Isabelle dominates the screen from the minute we meet her, and delivers a masterful performance.
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.
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
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
It's a truly interesting slasher fest; in this one, the heroine gets to be both beauty and beast.
May 30, 2013
Combines gore, quiet dread, feminist conviction and a visual classicism, often using a red palette, with impressive, unbelabored dexterity.
May 30, 2013
The Soska Sisters have directed a sharp, smartly acted and squirmy motion picture.
May 16, 2013
If you believe in the artistry of horror - and its ability to be bold, provocative, and daring - then this is a movie that demands your immediate attention.
March 14, 2013
While the film has its problems, there is a lot to like here for die-hard horror fans and body mod enthusiasts.
January 22, 2013
Once in a while, a mould-breaking horror movie signals the arrival of a unique talent: doubly so in this case, since this bracingly perverse 'body modification' tale was made by Canadian twins Jen and Sylvia Soska, aka the Twisted Sisters.
January 13, 2013
This won't break the Soska sisters out beyond their current nerd following, but they have a twisted spark that makes them worth keeping tabs on in future.
