The last thing Mary saw Writer-director Edoardo Vitaletti:
“It is an honor to join Shudderthe incredible list of films. They’ve been raising the bar for thought-provoking genre storytelling for years, and I’m excited to partner with them to release The Last Thing Mary Saw.
The last thing Mary saw begins in Southold, New York, 1843: Young Mary (Stefanie Scott: Insidious: Chapter 3), blood flowing from behind the blindfold tied around her eyes, is asked about the events surrounding her grandmother’s death. As the story goes back in time, we see Mary, raised in a repressive religious home, finding fleeting happiness in Eleanor’s arms (Isabelle Fuhrman: Orphan), the maid. Her family, who believe they see, speak and act in the name of God, regard the girls’ relationship as an abomination, to be treated as harshly as possible. The couple attempt to continue in secret, but someone is still watching or listening, and the wages of perceived sin threatens to turn into death, with the tension only heightened by the arrival of an enigmatic stranger (Rory Culkin:Waco, Halston) and the revelation of greater forces at work.
The last thing Mary saw is produced by Isen Robbins and Aimee Schoof (You’re here, Blue Caprice) by Intrinsic Value Films, Harrison Allen and Madeleine Schumacher from Arachnid Films, Stephen Tedeschi (Blue Caprice) and Executive Produced by Scoop Wasserstein (The clothe). The film will premiere virtually on August 15 as part of the 25th Fantasia International Film Festival, which kicked off on August 5 as a hybrid event with in-person screenings in Montreal, Quebec and the Geo Virtual Slate. – locked in Canada. Following Fantasia, the film will premiere in the UK on August 28 at FrightFest in London.
