Pretty sure you all have seen American Mary already but if you haven’t get thee forth post haste and do so! Man, did I love this movie. It’s got one of my biggest all time girl crushes in it, Katharine Isabelle from my beloved Ginger Snaps, and the story itself is just kickawesome. I never knew what was going to happen next and that so rarely happens these days.
Mary’s just your typical med student who wants to be a surgeon, who’s also up to her eyeballs in debt, a total starving student as she says at one point. To make ends meet, she decides to try to her hand at stripping but things don’t exactly go as planned. Instead of stripping, she’s asked by the club’s owner to help save the life of one of his boys who is extremely hurt for whatever reason. $5000 if she agrees to help him out. So of course she does. I would too for that kind of money and I’m not even in med school.
Next she starts to get harassed by a woman named Beatrice, a dancer from the club, who has had extreme body modification done to look like Betty Boop, while really she just looks uber creepy. Bea has a friend who wants to be a living Barbie doll and as such wants…well…she wants the full Barbie package including the whole no genitalia and asexuality bit. Once again there’s a lot of money on the table and since Mary’s still in debt, she once again agrees to do it. Poor Mary, this is really the start of her downfall.
After Mary does this surgery, more follow till…well…if you actually haven’t seen this one, I don’t want to ruin it for you but let’s just say Mary gets drawn into a seedy underworld and then something unspeakable happens to her that makes her go just a teensy bit cray. Just a teensy bit though… 😉
Seriously, this movie rocks more than words can describe so if you haven’t seen it GO NOW!!! I included a link up top just for you! Damn, I love Katharine Isabelle. She is so phenomenal and so incredibly hot. I need to go watch this again, like right now. Laterz.

This is actually the next movie I planned to watch on Netflix. Glad to hear that it will be worth the watch. Beatrice looks horrifying, and would make a scary serial killer if they had went that route and if this was a slasher. Very good make up. considering Tristan Risk is pretty in real life. Agreed 100% about Katharine Isabelle.
I think you’ll like this one. 🙂 And super glad you agree about Katharine Isabelle!
This was the movie to see in case you were unconvinced as to whether Katharine Isabelle had any acting chops or not. The answer is hell yeah-in spades. Helluva movie I need to show this one to my wife.
Oh, Ginger Snaps was the first thing I ever saw her in and she blew me away – I definitely had no doubt of her acting chops but this…this was just phenomenal.
Oh she was definitely great in Ginger Snaps.
I adore those movies so hard!
I have the Ginger Snaps trilogy box set. Love them all.
I have them all too! 🙂 They’re the best.
Reblogged this on Jessie Spencer's Blogspot.
Liked this film, it was very different – I would have put it my Best of 2013 but wasn’t too sure it was really horror…
I dunno, it kind of reminded me of “Audition”. I think I’d classify it as horror. It definitely had it’s horrific moments.
Sounds pretty awesome! I have it on my Netflix list. I’ll bump it up for sure 🙂
Sweet! Let us know how you like it! 🙂
This movie was AWESOME! It impressed the hell out of me!!!!
I know!!!! I so loved it!! Creepy AND fantastic!
It really was! Glad to hear you enjoyed it too!
Good review, Misty! I have this film lined up to watch, soon. If it’s on Netflix then I will add it to my list. I have been putting it off for way too long. Stoked to watch it, now.
Thanks! It IS on Netflix and you should definitely watch soon – come back and let us know what you think! 🙂
Is it weird that i’m incredibly attracted to a woman who does horrible surgery on people?
Nope. Cause she’s a hottie.
