11. American Mary (2012).

Sarah & Adam celebrate Women in Horror month by discussing Jen & Sylvia Soska’s American Mary. This divisive film splits your hosts on some aspects, like so many split tongues, but there’s a lot to like about this ode to body modification, revenge, torture, and female empowerment.

Content warning: Unpacking this film’s sexual violence leads to a larger discussion about sexual assault in the genre. This discussion runs from 22:10–35:25 of the program.
