‘American Mary’ Photo; 2013 Release Date Announced

XLrator Media has acquired all U.S. rights to the horror sensation, American Mary, written and directed by Jen Soska and Sylvia Soska (Dead Hooker in a Trunk). The female-centric surgical horror-thriller will be released on XLrator Media's newly announced Screamfest label in Fall 2013.

XLrator Media CEO Barry Gordon stated.

" American Mary is one of the most original, thought-provoking and subversive horror films I've ever seen. It has riveted audiences at horror festivals and marks the emergence of the 'Twisted Twins' as the most exciting genre directors to come along in years.

American Mary played to highly enthusiastic audiences at LA's Screamfest Horror Film Festival in October where it won five awards including Best Film, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Cinematography and Best Makeup.

Screamfest co-founder and festival director Rachel Belofsky stated.

"Based on the extraordinary audience response at this year's festival, we knew we had to have this film on our Screamfest imprint with XLrator. Jen Soska and Sylvia Soska are incredibly talented directors. We are so thrilled to bring this film to genre fans all over the U.S."

American Mary follows the story of medical student Mary Mason (played by Katharine Isabelle of the Ginger Snaps franchise) as she grows increasingly broke and disenchanted with medical school and the surgeons she once admired. The allure of easy money and notoriety send Mary into the shady world of underground surgery and body modification.

American Mary was released May 31st, 2013.
