XLrator Media has acquired the U.S. distribution rights to Jen and Sylvia Soska's (Dead Hooker In A Trunk) horror thriller American Mary. The film will be released by XLrator's new Screamfest label in Fall 2013.
Strapped for cash while putting herself through medical school, student Mary Mason (Katharine Isabelle) takes a job as a waitress at a strip bar run by Billy Barker (Antonio Cupo). 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'.
Note: In the United Kingdom, Universal Studios will release American Mary on Blu-ray in January. See our listing here.
