American Mary

Special Guests: Jen Soska, Sylvia Soska, Tristan Risk

Guest Co-Host: Iris-Dora Saravia

We’re joined by Iris from the Badasses, Boobs and Bodycounts podcast as we look at the 2012 film, American Mary. Directed by the twisted twins, Jen and Sylvia Soska, the film tells the tale of a med student, Mary Mason (Katherine Isabelle), who is working towards becoming a surgeon but decides to pay her bills by doing body modification. American Mary takes the horror film into new directions and talks about such things as body image, ambition and more.

Also along for the ride this week Robohost who seems to have been fed some bad data from Mike White’s blog.
