Urban Legends - Bloody Mary (2005) Review
Urban Legends: Bloody Mary (2005) is a 1h 33-min rated R supernatural slasher-thriller horror film that was shot in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. Bloody Mary was the third and final segment/installment in the Urban Legend film series. Bloody Mary abandoned the slasher element from the original/preceding movies and went towards supernatural elements. Director Mary Lambert (Pet Sematary (1989), The Blacklist (2016), Madonna: Like a Prayer (1989), The In Crowd (2000)) did a fantastic job giving us stylistic and mood imbued shots but too bad her talent could not help this horrible script and bad editing.
The gore factor was okay as we saw spiders coming out of a girl’s face who also has glass shards in her head. What the girl did next was grotesque and left undesired memories that I had for days. The gore did not stop and is one of the reasons I gave this film a four along with great directing because of the gore and directing was the main strength of the movie.
The film revolves around Mary (Lillith Fields - Dead Noon (2007), Tracker (2007), The Adventures of Chris Fable (2010)) who is an angry ghost who is out for revenge, Mary wants to kill the children who helped in one way or another to kill her in the late 1960’s. Siblings Samantha (Kate Mara - 127 Hours (2010), The Martian (2015), Shooter (2007), Iron Man 2 (2010)) and David (Robert Vito - My Best Friend’s Wife (2001), Port Charles (1997)) has to solve the case before it is too late. Samantha, her friend, and David jokingly conjure up Bloody Mary in 2004 and find themselves the next morning in a deserted saw mill area with no memory of how they got there. Samantha began having visions and people began popping up dead leading Samantha to began researching the disappearance of Mary Banner in 1969. What will Samantha do with all of the information and will Mary stop killing people?
The kills were cruel, and some kills were over the top nasty. The actors gave us average performances; the plot was average, and a little interesting. The film’s unoriginality, predictability, plot holes and CGI finale was not inviting and was a downfall. The creepy score worked well and wondered with the movie. It is recommended to watch the film with an open mind and not to expect much out of the film if you want to have an average experience watching it.
