Product Description


A truly unique horror ride into the scariest of all places –the mind of a teenage misfit!

EXCISION is the story of Pauline ( AnnaLynne McCord), a delusional teenage outcast. Pauline picks scabs. Pauline dissects road kill. Pauline fantasizes about performing surgery on strangers. Her fascinations disturb her schoolmates and her parents, Phyllis ( Traci Lords) and Bob ( Roger Bart). No one understands Pauline except for Grace ( Ariel Winter), her younger sister who suffers from cystic fibrosis. An outcast at school and at home, Pauline is convinced that the best way to repair her estranged relationship with her family is to perform a risky operation to save her sister s life...

Starring AnnaLynne McCord (90210) as Pauline, EXCISION continues a long tradition of horror films with compelling female leads, such as Scream, the original Halloween, the original A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Birds, and Psycho. Also starring Traci Lords (Cry Baby, Blade), Ariel Winter (Modern Family), Roger Bart (Desperate Housewives), Jeremy Sumpter (Friday Night Lights, Soul Surfer), Malcolm McDowell and John Waters.

EXCISION is Richard Bates Jr. s directorial debut adapted from his highly praised short film, also entitled EXCISION , which played at over 50 film festivals internationally and garnered 24 awards from festivals such as Austin Fantastic Fest, Sundance Film Festival and Fantasia International Film Festival.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a horror movie, but horrific nonetheless 6 July 2013
Excision is a film that you will either love or hate. There doesn't seem to be an in between. It'll never be a huge hit as it's probably quite hard to market. It's not a horror movie, nor is it a thriller, comedy, or teen drama, yet it encompasses all of those genres and probably a few more.

It's about a high school girl, Pauline, who is a bit of a loner and slowly descending into a dangerous world of make believe. It's not a happy-go-lucky tale. What she needs, is someone to look out for her and take an interest. Sadly, her mother is a little preoccupied with her own life and her dad just does what he's told by her mum, leaving her to her own devices.

There is a strong horror element in the film, but it's psychological horror, drawn from her fantasies as she slowly descends deeper into her psychosis.

There aren't many films that are like this, or if there are, I haven't heard of them, therefore it's quite difficult to liken this film to any other.

If you're in the mood for something which is a very grisly affair, mixed with pretty much every other genre, give this a go. It's an indie film and it always will be, but everyone gives a good enough performance to elevate it to a cult film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bit of something different,really enjoyed it. 7 Oct 2013
Excision is a fairly unique movie,it manages to be genuinely twisted and dark whilst maintaining a nice black humour and a strange,charming quality throughout.The lead actress is a big part of this in my opinion,as I thought she was incredible in what was undoubtedly a challenging role to take's a feat she pulls off so naturally it's pretty amazing to see.
All the rest of the cast are stellar and play their parts perfectly,keeping the very interesting story going superbly,I was fascinated to see it all unwind.

Excision is probably not for everyone,as it is more of a character study than all-out action/gore etc,it's a film with a very strange and intoxicating feel,but if you're into films with different and strange stories,which aren't "by-the-numbers",then I highly recommend this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Behind Closed Doors 1 July 2013
This review will probably be rambling and incoherent, as even as I write I'm not entirely sure if I 'get' 'Excision' or indeed enjoyed it!

All I know is, some 24 hours after watching it's still on my it couldn't have been that bad could it? Very hard to define, but if I had to force 'Excision' into a genre, I'd say it was the blackest of black comedies I've probably ever seen. I laughed more than I squirmed....just! This is a brilliant exploration of mental illness and teenage angst vs. the 'keeping up appearences' ways of a proud, yet desperate mother.

What we have with 'Excision' is a film of extremes. There is lots of undoubted humour, especially directed towards the poor, downtrodden, 'I give up' father, played by Roger Bart. The heated, love/hate relationship between Pauline and her mother is often ammusing too. How many times have you wanted to throw food at someone, just because they're irritating you! A classic moment!

On the contrary, we have some very graphic and explicit scenes which play out in Pauline's dreams. A part of me thinks a few of them were over the top and a tad gratuitous, but then the whole film is surreal and boundary testing, so this isn't necessarily a negative.

'Excision' is a brilliantly acted, well made and pacey - and the final scene amoung others will live long in the memory. A strange link I know, but the final scene of 'Audition' grabbed me in a similar, 'oh my word' way. Powerful stuff. Audition (Collector's Edition) [DVD] [2001]

In summary this is not a film for everyone, but approach with an open-mind and I'm sure you won't forget it in a hurry

5.0 out of 5 stars The last cut is the deepest! 23 Oct 2014
By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER
AnnaLynne McCord stars as Pauline, a disturbed high school misfit who has delusions of becoming a surgeon. Dominated by her over bearing mother, Pauline battles with her sanity and unhealthy obsessions.

Superb, a teen based horror that’s pungent with everything from necrophilia, growing pains, peer pressure, sexual anxiety, parental strife, mental illness and horror – real horror. Writer/director Richard Bates Junior does a brilliant job of filling an 80 minute movie with so many thematic smarts but never once over egging his bloody pudding. He gets excellent performances out of McCord and Traci Lords (as Pauline’s mother), whilst the blending of surreal imagery via Pauline’s dreams and the real world awkwardness – with some dry humour in the mix too – produces a picture that is in equal parts oddball and emotionally shattering.

When Dead Ringers collides with Ginger Snaps, Excision will stay with you for days afterwards. 9/10

4.0 out of 5 stars Surreal, as trippy as Altered States... 17 Jan 2014
Pauline is a young woman who lives with her family and her younger sister Grace who has Cystic Fibrosis.

Pauline has some delusions of being a great surgeon, and she also has some horrific dreams that she finds stimulating to say the least.

Her family put up with her delusions and her school classmates find her annoying.

But as this is all happening around her she has a plan, a plan that will leave them all shocked, and some people may not survive.....

Every now and again, you get a really bizarre release that separates audiences,many becomes something of a cult thing, to say that this is one of those movies is like saying to someone it gets dark at night.

From the upstart, it's got a really psychedelic, 'May' feel to it, and although there are parts that are truly hilarious, there are also scenes that really repulse, and the film gives you that guilty, dirty feeling whilst watching. It's not an ideal film to watch with a loved one.

Saying that though, it's a fascinating journey into someone's delusions, someone who thinks they are superior to the majority of people, and eccentricities are garnered from her parents struggles and possessiveness of their youngest.

Lords, is brilliant as the mother, and has a 'Carrie' vibe to her portrayal.

Dream sequences are sublime, and full of connotation regarding sexual orientation, and repression.

It's a hard film to recommend, but if you like extreme cinema, you will find a good addition to the Sub-Genre, but something distasteful, and really pushing taboos and boundaries.

I think the director is very pleased with the outcome..

Quite unlike anything else I've see. The cover picture is misleading as it doesn't apply to any images seen in the film itself, but I digress.
