The Soska's 'American Mary' UK trailer debuts

Over here in the States we have to wait until the Fall of 2013 to see American Mary released on Blu and DVD, but not so in the UK. Back in Blighty the Soska Sisters eagerly anticipated follow-up to Dead Hooker in a Trunk will be hitting theaters from January 11th, through FrightFest, and Blu-ray and DVD on January 21st from Universal UK. I see an import copy in my near future. Now is your chance to see the new UK trailer for American Mary in all its glory!

Struggling to make financial ends meet while studying to be a surgeon, talented medical student Mary Mason (Katharine Isabelle) finds herself reduced to applying for work at a local strip joint in order to pay off her mounting debts. During her interview, she is unexpectedly called upon to perform some illegal emergency surgery on one of the club’s clients and is instantly rewarded with a significant cash payment.
Word of Mary’s scalpel-work soon reaches one of the club’s dancers, Beatress Johnson (Tristan Risk), who approaches her offering to pay handsomely for some off-the-books, extreme body-modification work on a friend. The ensuing surgery is a huge success and Mary’s skills soon attract the attention of an underground network of high-paying clientele, all looking for someone to administer procedures and body-mod work unavailable through the usual legal channels.
However, the allure of the easy money and the increasingly bizarre work she is commissioned to perform begins to leave a mark on Mary, and when an incident involving the established surgeons she once idolized leaves her traumatised, “Bloody Mary”, as she has come to be known, responds in the only way she knows how.
