Posted by:

American Mary Fantastic Fest 2012Mary Mason is a surgical student with financial problems. In order to solve these problems, she answers a advertisement looking for a “dancer”. Arriving at a grungy strip club, Mary meets Billy Barker, the manager of this fine establishment. As Billy is checking out Mary’s “wares”, a problem develops in the basement of his club. He returns and immediately and offers Mary a quick $5,000 in cash for some help. The job ? Patching up a thug with razor cuts extending the length of his body. Job completed, Mary returns home where she is immediately contacted by an affiliate of Billy’s. The job this time is body modification and the price tag is $10,000. Mary is no longer a starving student but a entrepreneur with a successful side business.

Soon after, Mary’s instructors take interest in her and invite her to a party being thrown by a bunch of doctors. It does not take long to realize that Mary is out of her element, and soon after she is the victim of rape at the hands of  her surgery instructor. From this point forward Mary is a changed person. She decides to drop out of school and enter the world of body modification full time.

Halloween White Elephant: Child’s Play (1988)

From Noah–“I assigned Brian CHILD’S PLAY because, as a horror fan, it’s beyond shameful to never have seen the first entry to this series. I know some people will debate on how the entire thing stands up as a whole, but I love all of the CHILD’S PLAY movies. The best thing about the first one being that you have a demon puppet terrorizing a little boy. A child. And I’m all for any horror movies where a child gets terrorized. I was also interested to hear how well Brian thinks this stands up having watched BRIDE OF CHUCKY with him recently.”

Every kid wants a Good Guy doll! Little Andy wants one so bad that his mother actually agrees to purchase one from a greasy hobo in the alley behind her place of employment. What every kid may not want–maybe–is a Good Guy doll possessed by the spirit of a dead serial killer. Unfortunately, that was exactly the little bonus that came with the dubious Good Guy doll Andy’s mom illicitly acquired. Charles Lee Ray, alias The Lakeshore Strangler, alias Chucky, is now committing homicides from beyond the grave as the Lilliputian plaything. Guess Andy’s mom should have bought him a Nintendo.
