"With apologies to Rocky Horror, the year’s Whistler Film festival has its own late-night double feature.
Vancouver-based twin sisters and writing-directing partners Jen and Sylvia Soska are opening the festival’s midnight madness program Nov. 28 with their new horror movie American Mary.
I visited the self-styled Twisted Twins onset more than a year ago when they filmed the movie, which stars local cult-indie fave Katharine Isabelle (Ginger Snaps, Insomnia) as a disillusioned med student who finds work in a bizarre underground fetish scene, doing body-modification surgeries.
Also in the movie’s corner is B.C. make-up wizard Todd Masters (True Blood, Twilight: New Moon), so there will be blood and strange prostheses.
Since they wrapped, the movie has drawn raves at genre festivals in the U.S. and around the world, but Whistler will mark the movie’s home-province debut."
THAT'S RIGHT, WEST COAST!! American Mary makes her home Province debut - 11pm opening night at the Whistler Film Festival!!
