See You In the UK!




AMERICAN MARY is coming to your town with Jen, me, Mary herself, Katharine Isabelle, brought to you by the rad folks at Film4 FrightFest before it's Universal Pictures UK DVD/BluRay release.

"FRIGHTFEST AMERICAN MARY TOUR Following its recent successful UK festival run, including the world's first screening at FrightFest back in August, we are delighted to be able to bring this stylish horror thriller to UK cinemas for a theatrical tour in January 2013. 
Writers/directors Jen and Sylvia Soska, and Mary Mason herself, lead actress Katharine Isabelle, will be returning to the UK to join Alan Jones, Paul McEvoy and Ian Rattray to introduce shows the length and breadth of the country. Kicking off at London's legendary Prince Charles Cinema on Friday, 11 January the tour will be calling at Edinburgh, Glasgow, Sheffield, Leeds, Bristol and Brighton. Full details of dates, cinemas and times can be found below. 
One of the year's most horrific highlights, American Mary tells the story of student Mary Mason (Katharine Isabelle) who grows increasingly disenchanted with the American medical school that she is attending and the doctors that she once idolised. The lure of easy money sends a desperate Mary through the gruesome world of underground surgeries, but soon finds it leaves more marks on her than the freakish clientele.
Clever, sexy, funny and utterly gorgeous to look at, American Mary features a standout lead performance from award winning actress Katharine Isabelle (Ginger Snaps), and puts the Soska sisters, a.k.a. the Twisted Twins, squarely at the forefront of modern genre filmmaking. 
On both sides of the Atlantic, Jen and Sylvia Soska's American Mary has already been celebrated with more than a dozen international film festival honours, including Best Picture (LA ScreamFest, ShudderFest) as well as Best Director and Best actress (Toronto after Dark, LA ScreamFest, ShudderFest). 
Total Film Magazine voted Katharine Isabelle Best Actress at FrightFest back in August, whilst SFX magazine called American Mary the 'Best of the Fest'.
