In the mood for a great horror film? I mean, a BLOODY GOOD horror film?
And do you want to see that film directed by two women who pose like THIS?
Well, time to introduce you to a couple of twins with a twisted sense of humor – and who 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!”
Here is a great interview done with the New York Times:
This great article is the next step forward for this horror-making-twin-directing-set-of-sisters!
The article, and a lot of press in the last week is for their new medical 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” will be released on DVD and blu-ray in mid-June, so you can see the sisters in action!
Twisted Twins Productions!
And of course, the Soska sisters have a perfect name for their company – Twisted Twins Productions! The Soska twins are breaking barriers and diving headfirst into the bloody world of modern horror – here is some background on them, from their website, Twisted Twins Productions!
“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.”
“Dead Hooker In A Trunk” was their debut film. The twins wrote, directed, produced, starred in, and preformed the stunts for the film. They took lessons learned from Rodriguez’s book, “Rebel Without A Crew”, – the bible on making ultra low-budget movies.

Now, let’s look at the Soska Sisters’ movie debut:
“Dead Hooker In A Trunk” has been available on home video for a few years, and “American Mary” is coming to dvd/blu-ray on June 18th – it’s a great chance to support a new vision of horror – from two sisters who are doing it their way – and not letting anything or anyone hold them back!
