  1. spasmolytic's rating of the film American Mary

    Disturbing. But in that John Waters way which I don't like.

  2. JMKE's rating of the film American Mary

    i mean duh, movies don't have to make sense for them to be good, but it had so much potential in the first 20 mins!! the doll people were so cool, but everything else about it Sucked. i can't believe i had to look at ugly men with dermals portrayed as being bad ass...

  3. Matt's rating of the film American Mary

    Seems to want the viewer to think it's deep, but doesn't want to go the extra mile and actually say anything. The script plays like a half-finished first draft. The shock and gore scenes are so generic they evaporate from memory as soon as they're off the screen. There is some good cinematography, but the only thing memorable about it is the undeserved hype.

  4. Lena Lopes's rating of the film American Mary

    I was expecting to see more details of the surgeries :(

  5. Effendi Ben Smith-Malick's rating of the film American Mary

  6. mikong's rating of the film American Mary

    Everything else has already been said. A lot of cool shots but the third quarter is a bit dragging and the ending is abrupt!

  7. emily's rating of the film American Mary

  8. Pablo Ramos's rating of the film American Mary

    The Gothic Lolita reading of God's Not Dead, except completely undecided on what it's trying to proselytize.

  9. .:BuNNii:.'s rating of the film American Mary

    I loved this grotesque masterpiece! This was a morbidly beautiful flick! A must see for one who is craving to see a refreshing and unique twist on darkness.

  10. nargs_au's rating of the film American Mary

    It's not really a horror film but it's such a horror film. Enjoy.

  11. J. O.'s rating of the film American Mary

    Exceptionally poorly written, shabby direction, and mostly atrocious performances. There were some good ideas and some moments of humour, but generally not worth your time.

  12. Fx Ardhi Djohary's rating of the film American Mary

  13. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film American Mary

    The occasional fractions of humor thrown in by Soska sisters didn’t work out, and the same happened with the poorly written script, which was never able to excite or create any kind of fear. Review and Rating: http://www.alwayswatchgoodmovies.blogspot.pt/2013/06/american-mary-2012.html

  14. Paolo Simeone's rating of the film American Mary

    Boh, sembra quasi abbian tagliato via dei pezzi ed è un peccato perché viaggiava anche bene. Un po' col freno tirato, mentre avrebbero dovuto approfittare dell'ottima Isabelle. Passabile.

  15. Remy Chevalier's rating of the film American Mary

    "It's gratuitous in its nastiness, hollow in its overheated perversity, and utterly unbelievable at every turn...." and I loved every minute of it! It was hyper squeamish and never boring. What it says about me I don't know, but it's become one of my all time favorite films!!!

  16. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film American Mary

    Nip & Tuck: The Extended Cut. No pun intended.

  17. hastapura's rating of the film American Mary

    Isabelle anchors what could be a Six-ian exercise in adolescent shock, giving it a likable, believable center. Things get a bit out of hand as generic demands weigh heavy (same issue mars Ginger Snaps), but I was always engaged and, to the Soskas' credit, rooting for Mary. That's as successful as this stuff gets in the end.

  18. João R's rating of the film American Mary

    A flawed (that could easily been better if more profound and less revengeful), stylized, twisted, not always appealing, intense but deeply intriguing movie lead by the charismatic Katharine Isabelle.

  19. Justin Vicari's rating of the film American Mary

    I thought I would like this film, its makers clearly appreciate Cronenberg, Ferrara, Waters, and some other favorites of mine. But this mess only shows how hard it is to make a disturbing film that is intelligent and which rings true. It's gratuitous in its nastiness, hollow in its overheated perversity, and utterly unbelievable at every turn.

  20. Westley's rating of the film American Mary

    It's kind of like a low-rent Cronenberg. It's not bad, but not great. There are a few really good scenes, but on the whole the film doesn't quite gel. It suffers from an unfocused and anticlimactic script. However, it's a huge step up from the Soska sisters' first movie, "Dead Hooker in a Trunk," which sucked. "American Mary" proves the Soska sisters have potential. I'm interested in seeing what they do next.

  21. Tyler Aikens's rating of the film American Mary

    A promising idea that had the potential of saying something profound but instead chose style over substance, resulting in a mindless and muddled rape-revenge exploitation film that is more tits and gore than brains and heart.

  22. Adam Moody's rating of the film American Mary

    Grotesquely inventive horror with a killer concept, a knowledge of what to show and what to leave to the imagination and a hell of a performance by Katherine Isabelle. The ending is rather abrupt and the acting in general isn't the strongest, but the Soska Sisters have made a surprisingly provoking genre film.

  23. Mathias Palmberg's rating of the film American Mary

    This movie starts out promising but ends up in a ditch! The premise is good enough and leading lady Katharine Isabelle is alright. The problem lies in the script and the directing which is really all over the place. I also found it strange that a movie which deals with issues of bodily and female empowerment, ends up punishing the leading lady for her actions.

  24. Sam Everett's rating of the film American Mary

    Barely a two star movie. Pros; cool concept; decent body horror. Cons; poor character development; women as sex objects (without any commentary on this, just for the sake of it); poor pacing; wooden acting; unnatural plot progression; badly executed/developed sub-plots (which only served to further the "women are things" message).
