Excision Reviews

We Got This Covered

Excision isn't for the weak of heart or those hoping for a simple-minded watch, but can most certainly be a rewarding endeavor for any viewer needing a good character piece full of personalities worth a good psycho-analysis.

I liked this teen comedy-horror flick an awful lot. But then I'm warped.

There's an element of parody to this jet-black comedy, but the film is so creepy that it gets under our skin.

charting the horrors of adolescent alienation... writer/director Richard Bates Jr. is the exciting new face of disturbing, demented psychodrama.

This disturbing, demented psychodrama cuts to the heart of teen growing pains.

A very strange and rather disgusting indie thriller.

An overripe mélange of Cronenbergian 'body horror' and alienated Lynchian weirdness.

The List

It won't be to many people's taste, but for those with strong stomachs, Excision presents a strain of horror that's grounded in real life, and one with more potency that most conventional slasher/torture fare.

Rosie Fletcher
Total Film

Brave, transgressive, disgusting, thrilling - and boasting a 90210-defying turn from an uglified AnnaLynne McCord - Excision could have been this generation's Carrie.

Like the lovechild of Carrie and Napoleon Dynamite, Pauline is the oddball hero of a truly impressive, eccentric teen horror.

Screen-Space

Bates' piercing originality and keen eye for framing and ear for dialogue sets it own precedents, standing tall on the stooped shoulders of Pauline and her teen-dream bloodlust.

Excision is no horror movie, but rather, a blood-strewn black comedy. It's an uneasy tone to strike, but Bates finds the right balance with his sharp script and just enough underlying tension.

A dark comedy that may not quite be Lucky McKee's masterful May but should earn fans along the lines of Ginger Snaps and Teeth

JoBlo's Movie Emporium

While it's more than a little sick, and will likely leave you queasy by the time the credits roll, EXCISION is nonetheless a truly unique horror ride into the scariest of all places- the mind of a teenaged misfit.

It's the take-no-prisoners enthusiasm with which Bates leaps into his suburban nightmare that makes Excision so interesting.

Excision is a supremely nasty piece of work in the best way possible.

This is one of the damnedest "adolescent misfit" movies you'll ever see -- for those who can stomach the splatter, that is.

Financial Times

McCord's elfin face has been transformed here with fake heavy eyebrows into something disturbingly simian and her low, uncouth voice provides a really weird sexual charge.

Guardian [UK]

It could have been David Cronenberg meets Todd Solondz, but ends up more of a cautionary cartoon on things you shouldn't try at home.

You wait years for one quirky, necrophiliac, indie horror to arrive and then...well, only one turns up. Excision is probably why.
