EXCISION (USA) – Dir. Richard Bates Jr.

Pauline is a troubled teen. Socially awkward and with an unhealthy obsession with surgery, Pauline’s alienation leads her down a dark path, culminating in extreme measures to gain the approval of her mother in this Sundance Film Festival hit. CS Regulars may remember the short film version of Excision from Celluloid Screams 2009… In 2012, Director Richard Bates Jr. is back with the feature-length version, a pitch-black teen-angst horror that plays like a combination of Todd Solondz and Lucky McKee’s MAY, including cameos from John Waters, Malcolm McDowell and Ray Wise, and astounding performances by Traci Lords and a virtually-unrecognisable Annalynne McCord (from TV’s 90210)
