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

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.

Excision is technically polished juvenilia that provokes without resonance.
November 8, 2012
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.

I liked this teen comedy-horror flick an awful lot. But then I'm warped.
October 30, 2012
A very strange and rather disgusting indie thriller.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

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.

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.

June 15, 2012
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.
August 26, 2015
It's the take-no-prisoners enthusiasm with which Bates leaps into his suburban nightmare that makes Excision so interesting.
October 29, 2012
Brave, transgressive, disgusting, thrilling - and boasting a 90210-defying turn from an uglified AnnaLynne McCord - Excision could have been this generation's Carrie.

November 1, 2012
This disturbing, demented psychodrama cuts to the heart of teen growing pains.
November 2, 2012
charting the horrors of adolescent alienation... writer/director Richard Bates Jr. is the exciting new face of disturbing, demented psychodrama.
October 30, 2012
An overripe mélange of Cronenbergian 'body horror' and alienated Lynchian weirdness.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 16, 2012
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
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
November 2, 2012
There's an element of parody to this jet-black comedy, but the film is so creepy that it gets under our skin.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Excision is a supremely nasty piece of work in the best way possible.
Full Review | Original Score: B+

This is one of the damnedest "adolescent misfit" movies you'll ever see -- for those who can stomach the splatter, that is.
Full Review | Original Score: B+
February 3, 2012
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.
