Christopher Webster [Celluloid 10.09.12] horror



Ah marketing. It's a tricky thing. What will entice audiences? Here, Anchor Bay Films takes the wtf approach in releasing a clip that taken out of context would be seem very odd indeed. Jeez, even IN context it's strange.

The company is releasing what might be the oddest coming-of-age horror film ever, Excision. Based on writer/director Richard Bates, Jr.'s short film of the same name, Excision follows a disturbed and delusional high school student, Pauline, with aspirations of a career in medicine, who goes to extremes to earn the approval of her controlling mother, Traci Lords (yes, that Traci Lords).


Excision boasts an impressive and eclectic cast including AnnaLynne McCord (90210, Transporter 2), Traci Lords (Blade, Zack & Miri Make a Porno), Ariel Winter (ABC's "Modern Family"), Roger Bart (Hostel Part II, Law Abiding Citizen, American Gangster), Malcolm McDowell (The Artist, A Clockwork Orange, Rob Zombie's Halloween, HBO's "Entourage") and cameos including Ray Wise, director John Waters.



So what do you think? Does that clip make you want to see Excision?

If you need more to go on, here is the film's trailer and our review from Sundance
