Critic Reviews for Dead Mary

All Critics (4)

Nothing more than an angsty, tedious, self-important, and painfully boring drama that seems to use the horror genre as only a hook to garner an audience...

By being more psychological in its frights, Dead Mary manages an extra layer of spookiness, but it also risks losing less patient viewers in the process.

Unfortunately, once dead and zombiefied, these chatty chums are no less talkative than before - forget flesh ripping bites, they'll talk your ear off sooner than sink their teeth into it.

I've watched Dead Mary and can't unwatch it. It may be a labor of love and a technically competent film, but it doesn't numb the anger coursing through my soul.

Audience Reviews for Dead Mary


The opening will put you to sleep. Some where about forty minutes in, a good premise begins to develop, but since the most interesting character dies first, you stop really caring what happens. Much wasted potential.

This is quite a good horror film that does borrow a lot from other films like Bloody Mary, Cabin Fever and a few others. It's a little slow to start and it won't please gore fans, but it was much better than I expected it to be.

Very impressive indeed. The beginning starts off with no dialog and yet still tells us about a lot of stuff through the visuals. The cinematography is fantastic, desaturated and highly professional it puts most horror films to shame. Great directing keeps the build up almost painfully slow but always tense. The decision to make these characters young adults as opposed to regular teen fuckheads also made time for real relationships and real reactions to what was going on. Finally the acting was brilliant, very believable and for all it's hard effort this should have gotten a main cinematic release and been much more successful. Being more of a psychological drama and character study than an all out horror results in the final act stumbling a bit as the monster/witch/demon/infection begins to take center stage.
