I haven’t reviewed directors Jen and Sylvia Soska’s enjoyable exploitation flick “Dead Hooker in a TrunK” on Beyond Hollywood, and I really need to fix that. I’m a huge fan of the flick, as it appeals directly to the dirty little 42nd Street weirdo which dwells deep inside my inky black soul. The sisters’ latest offering “American Mary” looks considerably darker than their first effort, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less intriguing. Another teaser for the flick popped up at this year’s Comic Con, an event which has eluded my grasp once again. Thankfully, the clip is now available online, which means you can find it nestled below this collection of words. As always.
This synopsis should help set the stage:
After giving the world Dead Hooker in a Trunk, the irrepressible Soska sisters unleash American Mary. Starring Katharine Isabelle (Ginger Snaps), this metaphor for the Soskas own journey through the independent film industry follows medical student Mary Mason as she becomes increasingly broke and disenchanted. The allure of easy money sends Mary into the twilight world of body modification and underground surgeries where obsessed flesh artists will pay anything and go through any pain to get their unusual procedures done. But Mary soon finds that her new ‘profession’ leaves more marks on her own psyche than on her freakish clientele.
“American Mary” stars Antonio Cupo, Tristan Risk, David Lovgren, Paula Lindberg, and Twan Holliday. You can find the latest teaser, as well as the one we covered back in March, in the space below. And I promise I’ll get to work on that “Dead Hooker” review.
