AMERICAN MARY Joins Universal Pictures International Entertainment

Our beloved Twisted Twins, Jen and Sylvia Soska’s latest masterpiece has a new home.  Read on for the details.

IndustryWorks Pictures, the producers of its latest horror film AMERICAN MARY announced that Universal Pictures International Entertainment, the international home entertainment division of Universal Pictures, has acquired the rights to AMERICAN MARY for a number of international territories, including the UK and Germany.

This is exciting news for the countries abroad that wish to view this film.

The film stars Katharine Isabelle (Ginger Snaps, Disturbing Behavior, Freddy Vs. Jason) and Julia Maxwell (Hot Tub Time Machine, Charlie St. Cloud) and is out of the disturbingly creative minds of Jen and Sylvia Soska.

Synopsis:
From the creative team that brought you the indie-smash film Dead Hooker In A Trunk – American Mary is the story of a medical student named Mary who is growing increasingly broke and disenchanted with medical school and the established doctors she once idolized.  The allure of easy money sends a desperate Mary through the messy world of underground surgeries which leaves more marks on her than the so-called freakish clientele.

Following its market screening in Cannes earlier this year, AMERICAN MARY will premire in the UK Monday August 27th at Film4FrightFest at the Empire Cinema in Leicester Square, London with Katharine Isabelle and the directors in attendence.  UPIE is looking to release AMERICAN MARY in early 2013.

IndustryWorks commented: “We’re very excited to be working with such an established distributor that not only has significant presence in the market place but truly understood that AMERICAN MARY is something special and very unique, touching on several controversial subject matters, something that is very rare in this business today.  This is a film that will certainly resonate with the mass pop culture audiences of today.”
