American Mary

 (2012)

American Mary Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Strapped for cash while putting herself through medical school, medical student Mary Mason takes a job as a waitress at a strip bar, run by Billy Barker. As she becomes increasingly disillusioned with her studies, Billy introduces Mary to a new and extremely lucrative sideline, performing extreme body modifications to an odd collection of flesh-obsessed characters. Subsequently forced to drop out of medical school, she soon takes refuge in her new career. But as her demeanor steadily darkens, and her actions take on an altogether more vengeful twist, she begins to be known and feared as 'Bloody Mary'.

For more about American Mary and the American Mary Blu-ray release, see American Mary Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Katharine Isabelle, Antonio Cupo, Tristan Risk, David Lovgren, Paula Lindberg, Jen Soska

American Mary Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

American Mary was shot with Red Epic cameras by Brian Pearson, a frequent second unit DP, who also served as cinematographer for Final Destination 5 and The Butterfly Effect 2. Pearson used darkness and shadows effectively to create atmosphere and extract the maximum visual value from the Soskas' tight production budget. Most of the film takes place indoors, and Pearson's spaces are always dim and mysterious.

The image on XLrator's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray is clear, detailed and sharp, as is generally the case with projects originated on Red. Blacks are deep, with well-delineated shadows and detail, so that items that are supposed to be visible in shadow can be seen, if only dimly. Details of faces, costumes and props (including bizarre surgical implements) are readily discernible whenever they are in focus. The generally cool hues of Mary's environs (notably, med school and her residences) contrast with the warmer tones of Billy's club and a few outdoor locations, but overall American Mary is a chilly-looking movie. Even the redness of blood has been somewhat dulled, probably in post-production.

Some light banding occurs here and there, but most viewers will never notice. Otherwise, no artifacts were in evidence. Red footage generally compresses well, and except for a few scenes, American Mary doesn't have a lot of rapid activity. The average bitrate of 19.94 Mbps appears to be sufficient.


American Mary Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

American Mary's DTS-HD MA 5.1 track is atmospheric more than immersive. It has a general sense of ambiance for various environments, but the film is generally set in locales and features actions that offer little in the way of opportunity for elaborate surround activity. Even the Bourbon a Go Go club and a raucous party that Mary attends do little except place music at appropriate volume into the surround array. The dialogue is clear, and the sound effects are appropriately unsettling. The score by prolifie Canadian composer Peter Allen contributes to the creepy atmosphere, but more notable are the multiple versions of "Ave Maria" heard at key points throughout the film. Their reproduction is flawless; their effect is increasingly disturbing.
