So I watched American Mary a few nights ago and wanted to share some thoughts I’d had on it. Now, if you don’t already know- I’m a pretty big horror fan, but I also have a real interest in the (for lack of a better word) “feminist”* side of representations in the genre, I mean a few hours before sitting down with the dvd I was reading Carol J Clover’s excellent Her Body, Himself and maybe this skews my opinion on things, but it just seemed like a perfect timing to me.
Anyway, long story short: I loved it.
As for the long part, be aware that there are SPOILERS to come.
Also as a heads up, I use a lot of brackets- I think this stems from the fact that I go on tangents a lot irl and it’s difficult to keep my tone conversational and not academic in writing such as this without it (although I am working on that)
