Seven of the Most Deviously Frightful Doctors in Horror Films
Doctors. Aside from the medical field, they've excelled in so many areas. Literature… Dr. Seuss. Sports… Dr. J. Sugary beverages… Dr. Pepper. Successful doctors are everywhere. And they've certainly left their mark in - and on - the horror genre.
Without a doubt more than a few movie doctors have gone off the deep end, many of them with some pretty colorful results. We've seen our favorite doctors and scientists do all kinds of nasty things to their human victims. Most take bodies apart, but a couple of them even put things back together, most notably Dr. Frankenstein. Yes, there have been some great ones, like Dr. Anton Phibes, Dr. Jekyll and Dr. Giggles, but here are a few of our other favorites: Seven of the Most Deviously Frightful Doctors in Horror Films.
Mary Mason-American Mary
We may as well it kick off with the newest film on the list, and also the only female entrant. Mary Mason, or Bloody Mary as she's known to her patients, is the damaged title character in American Mary, the kick-ass sophomore effort by filmmakers Jen and Sylvia Soska. Brilliantly portrayed by Katharine Isabelle, Mary Mason is a med school student who suddenly finds herself a celebrity in the underground world of extreme body modification. Mary is a wonderfully unique creation surrounded by a backdrop of wildly colorful characters, making the film both thrilling and visually shocking.
