Share Article

For generations, teenagers have chanted her name - "I believe in Mary Worth....I believe in Mary Worth..." Standing before a mirror with a single candle in hand they thrill to the prospect that the spirit of Mary Worth will reveal herself in the mirror, or better yet, emerge from within.

Chicago area based MK4 Productions has completed their production of the feature film, "THE LEGEND OF BLOODY MARY". The film's screenplay incorporates the findings of seventeenth century Salem manuscripts detailing the punishment and execution of the sixteen year old Puritan girl, Mary Worth -- now popularly known as Bloody Mary.

The film explores the urban legend of summoning the spirit of Bloody Mary by chanting "I Believe in Mary Worth", while gazing into a mirror by candle light. The centuries old manuscripts detail the treacherous account and unjust treatment of Mary Worth, including her death sentence which was carried out as she was forced to watch her torture in the reflection of a mirror.

The film stars Stephen Macht, Caitlan Wachs, Dean O'Gorman, Paul Preiss, Rachael Taylor, and Nicole Aiken. Produced by Broadway Xanadu producer, Robert Ahrens.
