Jen and Sylvia took a break from their uber busy schedule to let me pick their talented brains for a while.

This time we talk in depth about American Mary and how they came up with this story, we talk about what’s up next for them and much more. Head inside for my latest Versus with Jen and Sylvia Soska aka The Twisted Twins, two girls that we’l be seeing a lot out of for years to come!"

"In a society where people are constantly struggling to make ends meet, even if they have a high drive and ambition to succeed, they're often forced to ruthlessly fight for the life they desperately seek. The struggle to also maintain an outward appearance that their lives are fine can push them over their limit. That's certainly the case with the title character in the new independent horror thriller 'American Mary,' which was written and directed by twin sisters Jen and Sylvia Soska. The story intriguingly balances the ideal world of modern medicine and top notch surgeons, with the underground world of extreme body modification enthusiasts. 'American Mary' follows a medical student, Mary Mason (Katharine Isabelle), who is growing increasingly broke and disenchanted with medical school and the established doctors she once idolized. The allure of easy money sends a desperate Mary through the world of underground surgeries, which leaves more marks on her than her so-called freakish clientele.
The Soska sisters generously took the time recently to talk about writing, directing and filming 'American Mary,' which is now available on VOD and is playing in select theaters, and will be released on DVD on June 18, over the phone. Among other things, Jen and Sylvia discussed how finding information about body modification online convinced them to pen and helm the horror thriller; how they used their creativity to overcome the struggles of shooting an independent film in 15 days; and why they felt using practical effects instead of CGI would give the film's body modification elements and scenes a more authentic feeling."
