American Mary is a truly strange Canadian horror film written and directed by the Soska sisters, a pair of identical twins who make a cameo in Mary as a pair of twisted German sisters that seek the help of the film's protagonist, a plastic surgeon who specializes in body modification. The film has received mixed reviews, some calling it refreshingly twisted, and others accusing it of not having a sympathetic enough lead. But the film is definitely unique, offers its fair share of gore, and definitely shows more of a feminine perspective than we usually see in the genre.
