CRISTINA FERRARE VAMPING OUT IN 'MARY, MARY, BLOODY MARY'

Cristina Ferrare in Mary, Mary, Bloody Mary YEAR: 1975
More exploitation than horror, MARY, MARY, BLOODY MARY is a visual treat, not only because the leading lady, Cristina Ferrare, is gorgeous but the Mexico location offer a myriad of settings to keep the viewer interested while the characters always have something to do, and somewhere to go: with little chance of getting away...

From beaches to highways, villas and art galleries, it's a low-budget flick that, despite the wooden, looped dialogue, will keep you in intrigued, entranced. Mary is a surreal artist about to enjoy a show displaying her strange artwork. When not painting, she hangs around with a handsome drifter, who becomes the only person she doesn’t sink her teeth into…

Actually, that’s the one thing that separates this from all other vampire flicks. Mary doesn’t use her teeth (and her teeth aren’t fangs): Instead she stealthily carries a finger-sized dagger that she stabs her victims with and devouring them of blood. After a few kills, including a fisherman and in one delectable scene, a bisexual female art collector, the police begin to catch on – each corpse is not only bled from the neck and sucked dry but were drugged beforehand, using the same chemical...

But Mary's not the only killer on the road…Cristina Ferrare with Helen RojoJohn Carradine plays a mysterious masked man that travels around leaving his own bodies behind, including a sexy hitchhiker. He’s also after Mary, who becomes more of a heroine after this new darker menace is introduced. She's now more vulnerable as she falls deeper in love with her boyfriend, who doesn’t know her dark secret.

Something's fishy about Cristina Ferrare w/ David Young RATES: ***1/2
After a car chase replete with a 1970’s slick soundtrack, there’s a showdown along a rolling hillside where John Carradine reveals his true identity and battles our heroine in a prolonged wrestling match… he has a knife and she her own wits… resulting in a fitfully bloody finale that includes her one true love being put to the test.

The direction is creative, relying on a stockpile of the usual close-ups and zooms from this era, and the pacing is suspenseful. Although the love scenes with Mary and her pretty boy boyfriend drag; you'll wish she'd either take off to find more victims or turn him into lunch.Not scary in the conventional sense, MARY is more creepy and sadistic. And fans of vampire flicks will have to put some rules aside. Other than the non-biting technique, this particular sexy vamp roams the daylight hours. In fact that’s where most of the bloodletting takes place, so you can see Cristina Ferrare even better!
