American Mary

I heard about American Mary on twitter from talk about Fright Fest. I heard good things about the film but deliberately wanted to know as little about the film as I could before watching it. From the chatter from Fright Fest, this seemed to be the kind of film where you need to know as little as possible before watching it so the changes within the film do take you by surprise. I wouldn’t go so far as saying it is a twisty kind of film, it’s just that the film takes an unusual direction and it would be a shame to know this direction before hand.

The film seems to has a fairly low budget but it doesn’t seem to suffer from any financial constraints. The film certainly delivered on horror/discomfort front. As a calling card, this was an impressive film. Is not quite a debut feature but certainly an important early work.
