Directed by Julien Magnat, Bloody Mary is a piece of French kitsch chronicling the journey of Bloody Mallory (Olivia Bonamy), the paranormal commando hired to rescue the pope from the band of ghouls who kidnapped him during a visit to Notre Dame. The issue is complicated when the Vatican's publicist is revealed as a frontman for the forces of evil. Mallory is no one to be trifled with, however--she hacked her own husband into pieces on their wedding night when he turned out to be a demon. Along with her crew, which includes a shape-shifting mute little girl with telepathic powers, and a 7-foot French-American drag queen (Jeffrey Ribier), Mallory has no qualms about fighitng evil.
