Universal Pictures is revving up its UK release of the Soska sisters latest blood filled venture 'American Mary'. The gory story of 'Mary' an exceptional med student who by day trains to be a surgeon and finances her studies by stripping at night. Katharine Isabelle ('Ginger Snaps') sinks her teeth into the title role and plants her blood spattered self upon the new UK DVD artwork which you can check out below. The DVD and Blu-ray arrives in the UK on 21 January 2013. And what's more scary is that Isabelle has never looked sexier than sporting her black surgeon's apron. 'American Mary' co-stars Paula Lindberg ('A Town Called Eureka'), Julia Maxwell, Antonio Cupo ('Dark Angel'), David Lovgren, Twan Holliday and Tristan Risk.
"Struggling to make financial ends meet while studying to be a surgeon, talented medical student Mary Mason (Katharine Isabelle) finds herself reduced to applying for work at a local strip joint in order to pay off her mounting debts. During her interview, she is unexpectedly called upon to perform some illegal emergency surgery on one of the club’s clients and is instantly rewarded with a significant cash payment.
Word of Mary’s scalpel-work soon reaches one of the club’s dancers, Beatress Johnson (Tristan Risk), who approaches her offering to pay handsomely for some off-the-books, extreme body-modification work on a friend. The ensuing surgery is a huge success and Mary’s skills soon attract the attention of an underground network of high-paying clientele, all looking for someone to administer procedures and body-mod work unavailable through the usual legal channels.
However, the allure of the easy money and the increasingly bizarre work she is commissioned to perform begins to leave a mark on Mary, and when an incident involving the established surgeons she once idolized leaves her traumatised, “Bloody Mary”, as she has come to be known, responds in the only way she knows how."
