With just two weeks to go until The Last Thing Mary Saw premieres on Shudder, a poster and trailer have been released for the period horror movie. Directed by Edoardo Vitaletti, the film centres on Mary (Stefanie Scott) as she is blindfolded and interrogated following the mysterious death of her grandmother, and tells her own recollection of events; take a look here…
Southold, New York, 1843: Young Mary (Stefanie Scott, Insidious Chapter 3), blood trickling from behind the blindfold tied around her eyes, is interrogated about the events surrounding her grandmother’s death. As the story jumps back in time, we witness Mary, raised in a repressively religious household, finding fleeting happiness in the arms of Eleanor (Isabelle Fuhrman, Orphan), the home’s maid. Her family, who believe they are seeing, speaking, and acting on God’s behalf, view the girls’ relationship as an abomination to be dealt with as severely as possible. The couple attempts to carry on in secret, but someone is always watching, or listening, and the wages of perceived sin threaten to become death, with the tension only heightened by the arrival of an enigmatic stranger (Rory Culkin, Lords of Chaos) and the revelation of greater forces at work.
The Last Thing Mary Saw features a cast that includes Rory Culkin, Isabelle Fuhrman, Stefanie Scott, Carolyn McCormick, and Judith Roberts.
The Last Thing Mary Saw premieres on Shudder on January 22nd.
