EXCISION [2012]

Like MayAmerican Mary, Richard Bates Jr.'s Excision is one of those unique character study films that lingers with you long after it's done.
At times it's intensely disturbing, shockingly funny, unapologetic in it's twisted execution and carried by a fearless performance from 90210's AnnaLynne McCord.  As outlandish as the film is on the outside, underneath it's tale of family and social dysfunctions is painfully realistic grounding the film in an unsettling reality. Filled with a gaggle of cameos from cult film fan favorites, Excision is definitely aiming for the oddball crowd that doesn't mind going on an uncomfortable yet entertaining ride.
