AMERICAN MARY: ON DVD MONDAY (21.01.2013)
Sharing our thoughts on the film exactly, THE DAILY RECORD, praises the movie for its decisive female characters:
"It's nice to see a horror film with a strong female character. All too often women in the films are there purely for titillation or, simply, to be fodder for the a-typical murderous madman."
ENTERTAINMENT FOCUS on why American Mary is a potential break-out movie:
"American Mary proves that great cult horror is alive and well. In the Soska Sisters American Mary gives horror a new and entertaining classic that doesn’t sensationalise for the sake of it. With a distinctly wicked flavour mixed in with some brilliant, stand out horror that never feels gratuitous, this is a great movie that deserves a big audience."
Whilst decrying bland and formulaic mainstream horror which focuses purely on gross spectacle, GEEK CHOCOLATE praises American Mary for standing out from the bleak and dismal herd:
"How refreshing and ironic that not only does American Mary buck that trend, but that it is a film about expressing individuality which comes to us courtesy of a trio of women, so often marginalised and victimised in horror."
