Product Description

SYNOPSIS

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.

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.

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 on...it'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.

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 mind....so 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

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By William Mason TOP 500 REVIEWER on 9 Nov 2014
Format: Blu-ray
This is a highly original and upsetting study of mental illness in a teenage girl, which had me thinking of the film Carrie, but without the telekinesis - Carrie [Blu-ray] [1976], Carrie [Blu-ray] [2013].
Pauline is an 18 year old High School student with a challenging, undiagnosed behavioural disorder. She is fiercely bright and always says what she thinks, sort of like Tourette's Syndrome but without the swear words. She dreams of becoming a surgeon and has the most macabre fantasies. She has an unhealthy pre-occupation with blood, necrophilia, body mutilation, menstruation and disease. She takes no pride in her appearance, her face is covered in spots and her hair is greasy and unkempt. However, just like Sissy Spacek in the original version of Carrie, Pauline is clearly - notwithstanding her weird body language, strange appearance and behaviour - a young woman who would be very sexy if she glammed up for the High School Prom.
She has a younger teenage sister, Grace-Marie, who has cystic fibrosis and urgently needs a lung transplant. Pauline's mental frailty is mirrored by her younger sister's physical frailty, and the two girls have a very strong bond.
Against all the odds, Pauline is in mainstream school, but she's an outcast with the teachers and the other pupils. Her mother is a dictatorial and over-bearing parent, who struggles to cope with her oldest daughter's special needs, and takes out her frustrations on her punch-bag of a husband.
