Jen and Sylvia Soska, aka The Soska Twins, became an immediate horror name when their micro indie Dead Hooker in a Trunk took the festival scene by storm. Now, the duo are back with American Mary, a body modification horror that stars Ginger Snaps and Freddy vs Jason fav. Katharine Isabelle.
Lonmonster caught the film at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival, where he not only interviewed the twins, but also chimed in with a review:
“The Soska Twins have come a long way since Dead Hooker, and American Mary is huge leap forward in their career as filmmakers. Paying tribute to body horror and rape and revenge cinema, the Soska Twins have created a film that’s bound to make audiences feel for their devil of a protagonist. Despite its flaws, this is a film that shines a light on Canadian cinema, offering hope that there is still originality to be found in horror.”
