FMWL Indie Spotlight - The Twisted Twins Kick Off Women in Horror Month by Revealing American Mary!

I've talked a lot about my favorite twin Canadian filmmakers of 2010 - The Soska Sisters - at FMWL.  Their next film, American Mary, has quickly become one of the most anticipated films on the indie horror scene for 2011.  We were able to share the teaser trailer with you all upon its release in December, and today they've unleashed more awesomeness upon the horror scene.
Below is a Public Service Announcement for the WiH Month Massive Blood Drive that the Twins are promoting, urging all who love horror to give their blood to help those in need.  You can check out a breakdown of the making of said video over at their blog, including a listing of who's who among the women of indie horror that appear in said video. 
(On a personal note, The Mike will not be giving blood.  Why?  BECAUSE HE'S A HUGE FREAKIN' PANSY AROUND NEEDLES, alright?  I'm spreading the word instead, OK???  Ahem.  Sorry about that.  HUGS!  Let's get back on track, shall we?)
Ant the end of the video, you will find the big reveal of the day - Katharine Isabelle, star of former Midnight Movie of the Week Ginger Snaps.  Ms. Isabelle will be taking on the title role in American Mary, opposite the Soskas and Paula Lindberg (who was featured prominently in the teaser trailer as Ruby Realgirl).  Isabelle definitely showed that she has the chops to shine in the horror genre with that film (as well as in her supporting role in Freddy vs. Jason), and I can't wait to see what she has in store for us all.
With the magical conjunction between the Soskas and Isabelle, I feel confident predicting that American Mary will offer up as much girl power as is humanly possible.  And if you don't believe me, you should also know that it has just been announced that Women in Horror Recognition Month founder Hannah Neurotica will also appear - in a cameo role - in the film.

I can assure you of one thing - these ladies aim to make anyone who loves Women in Horror proud.  I can't wait to see what they have in store for us all.
