We begin in Southold, New York, 1843, where we meet a young Mary (Stefanie Scott) with blood trickling from behind the blindfold tied around her eyes. As she is interrogated about the events surrounding her grandmother’s mysterious death.
As the story flashes back, we witness Mary, raised in a repressively religious and eerily claustrophobic household. Finding fleeting happiness in the arms of Eleanor (Isabelle Fuhrman), the family’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, inflicting brutal punishments.
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) and the revelation of greater forces at work…
The Last Thing Mary Saw oozes with palpable oppression, suspense, and sin. This dark and dread-filled horror promises to sate genre fans’ thirst for supernatural twists and innate terror. Audiences should get ready to witness The Last Thing Mary Saw, a painfully tense, heart-wrenching, and impossible-to-forget film.
