Entertaining, disturbing little sickie about a terminally-broke female medical student (Katherine Isabelle of 'Ginger Snaps') who finds a unique way to make ends meet: doing underground surgeries for people in the 'body modification' community. Naturally, the deeper she goes into that increasingly bizarre world, the weirder things get.
Not a classic for the ages, but a decent watch with some good gore and lots of eye candy courtesy of Isabelle. Think Dee Snider's Strangeland
without the Internet angle and a hot chick in place of Dee Snider, and you're sort of in the ballpark.
It is unclear why the film is called American Mary
since this film was apparently an all-Canadian production. Maybe 'Canadian Mary' didn't have the right ring to it.
