CHECK OUT THE FIRST CLIP FROM AMERICAN MARY INTRODUCED BY THE SOSKA TWINS

Twisted Twins Jen and Sylvia Soska, along with Tristan Risk, introduce the first clip from the upcoming follow-up to their debut DEAD HOOKER IN A TRUNK, AMERICAN MARY. Check it out below!

SYNOPSIS:

AMERICAN MARY tells the story (a  metaphor for the Soskas own journey through the independent film industry) of a medical student named Mary Mason (Katharine Isabelle) who grows increasingly broke and disenchanted with medical school and the established doctors she once idolised. The allure of easy money sends a desperate Mary into the twilight world of body modification and underground surgeries where obsessed flesh artists will pay anything and go through any pain to get their unusual procedures done. But Mary soon finds that her new ‘profession’ leaves more marks on her own psyche than on her freakish clientele. Keep your bloodshot eyes peeled here boils ‘n ghouls for more information as it comes along.

AMERICAN MARY FINALLY PICKS UP AMERICAN DISTRIBUTION!

It’s no secret that we’re big fans of the Soska twins around here at Backwoods Horror and are eagerly anticipating our first viewing of their newest film, AMERICAN MARY; a film that has been winning accolades all over the world. After checking out DEAD HOOKER IN A TRUNK, the Soska twins have swiftly become a force to be reckoned with in the horror community and we, as big fans, have been covering everything we could on AMERICAN MARY.

Now, for us boils ‘n ghouls in America we have exciting news. A few months ago, we’d learned that Universal Pictures had picked up AMERICAN MARY for international distribution. While we were incredibly excited for the Soska twins, we were bummed as hell that the distribution deal didn’t include us in the good ‘ol USA. All that’s changed now, however as news has come down the line that XLrator Media picked up all U.S. rights to the film. Unfortunately, however, we’ll still have to wait almost a year before it hits US markets as the film will be released under XLrator’s Screamfest label in fall 2013.

JOHN CARPENTER TO RECEIVE LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD AT SCREAMFEST 2012

All I can say is, “it’s about fucking time.” John Carpenter is truly one of the masters of the genre. While HALLOWEEN is often his claim to fame, my personal favorite of his has to be THE THING, an absolute perfect film full of dread, horror, the ultimate in practical special effects, an amazing ensemble cast, fantastic writing, and perfect direction. THE THING is a perfect storm of horror perfection, and for nothing else, he deserves the award for that film alone.

 

FROM THE PRESS RELEASE:

Director John Carpenter, the “Master of Horror” will be honored with a Career Achievement Award at the 12th annual Screamfest Horror Film Festival on Saturday, October 20th, beginning at 7 p.m. with a Q&A, and followed by a screening of Carpenter’s 1987 film Prince of Darkness. The event, and all things Screamfest will take place at LA Live Regal Cinemas (1000 West Olympic Blvd., LA, CA).

Carpenter burst onto the horror scene in 1978 with the wildly popular Halloween, followed by such hits as The Fog, The Thing, Christine, Escape From New York, Prince of Darkness, Village of the Damned, and In the Mouth of Madness.

In Carpenter’s Prince of Darkness, a sinister secret has been kept in a basement of an abandoned Los Angeles church for many years. If revealed, it could mean the end of the world. Starring Donald Pleasence, Lisa Blount and Jameson Parker.
