Just recently announced as having its UK premiere at this year’s Film4 FrightFest Halloween All-Nighter, director Richard Bates, Jr.’s highly anticipated Excision is now set to shock shelves across the pond on DVD and Blu-ray this November 12th courtesy of Monster Pictures.
From the Press Release:
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’s Fantastic Fest, Sundance Film Festival and Fantasia International Film Festival.
