Body horror films aren’t something the horror genre gets a lot of. They’re few and far between and when they do come out they’re usually scrutinized and picked over to the bones because of our excitement and delight at receiving a new one.
One of the most effective ones that I saw in the past several years was the Soska Twins’ American Mary, which starred Katherine Isabelle (Ginger Snaps, “Hannibal”). To say that the movie didn’t pull any punches is an understatement. I genuinely felt uncomfortable at many scenes and even though I sympathized with Mary and the horrible experience she endured, I still found myself questioning if the scope of her revenge was justified or if she went way too far. But I guess that’s the point of the movie, right? It challenges what we feel is acceptable as “justice”.
No matter your thoughts on the above matter, I think we can all agree that the movie has some rather memorable characters! But which one are you most like? That’s the basis for this week’s quiz, which you can take down yonder!
According to the quiz results, “You are Billy! You know how to handle your business and how to make your problems… well most of them, disappear!”
