It’s A Soska Sister “Shocktober!”
As we cut up our way through “Shocktober 2016”, time to slice and dice on day #21 with the amazing Soska Sisters, who have created some great horror films in their young career!
Get ready for “American Mary” – a bloody great new addition to Halloween tor, directed by two killer twins!
These twins have a twisted sense of humor – and are making a mark on horror!
Meet The Bloody Directing Twins!
As the New York Times said: “Lots of siblings make movies. The brothers Coen (“No Country for Old Men”) are Oscar winners. Andy and Lana Wachowski (“Cloud Atlas”) are a prominent brother-sister team. But sister directors? And not just sisters, but identical twins?”
You Mean There Are Horror Directing TWINS?
The answer is: YES! Meet Jen and Sylvia Soska, the identical twins who wrote and directed the horror film “American Mary!”
First, check out this terrific trailer:
The story follows medical student Mary Mason, as she becomes increasingly broke and disenchanted with the surgical world she once admired. The allure of easy money sends Mary into the world of underground surgeries which ends up leaving more marks on her than her so called ‘freakish’ clientele.
OK everyone, do we smell a twisted, scapel-wielding horror film in the making here?
“American Mary” is on demand and home video, and it really delivers the creepy horror you want this month. As their website proudly claims:
“The Soska sisters have always loved film. Since childhood, they were heavily involved in acting. Above all, they had a special place in their twisted little hearts for horror.”
And how can you argue that on this Shocktober 2016?
Speaking of strong women in horror – how about some lusty Vampires?
Sometimes you need to get down and dirty while getting bloody, and these “erotic horror films” did the trick! Read more here:
Of course, some women in horror have a thing for chainsaws:
“Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers” is just one of the great Linnea Quigley films – see more here:
These women were powerful protagonists, which horror films need more of – like our iconic scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis:
Never forget that she stood up to Mike Myers in “Halloween”! See more here:
