Episode 52: American Mary


Welcome one and all to our month long celebration of female directors as part of Women in Horror Recognition Month. Each week we’ll be discussing a  genre flick from the fairer sex, kicking off with American Mary. Currently working its way through the hype machine, the Soska Sisters’ film has been lighting up festivals and screenings for a while. We take a look at the ins and outs of American Mary – focusing on its portrayal of characters of both sexes, as well as examining the themes and how far the Soskas have come since Dead Hooker in a Trunk.

We also return to the format we had eschewed during guest picks month to talk about some of the things we have been watching lately. Expect to hear us chat about The Five-Year Engagement, Big Money Rustlas, Superhero Movie, Bad Kids Go To Hell and much more, all interspersed with digressions on Powerman 5000 and Kevin Smith’s new-found writing technique.
