ANCHOR BAY FILMS PRESENTS ONE OF THE MOST UNNERVING PSYCHOLOGICAL HORROR FILMS OF THE YEAR WITH EXCISION
Starring AnnaLynne McCord, Traci Lords, Ariel Winter, Roger Bart, with performances by Jeremy Sumpter, Matthew Gray Gubler, Ray Wise, John Waters, Golden Globe® nominated Malcolm McDowell, and Academy Award® Winner Marlee Matlin.
Comes to Blu-ray™ and DVD October 16th.
Anchor Bay Films presents the harrowing coming-of-age horror film, and instant cult classic, EXCISION, from writer/director Richard Bates, Jr., which Sundance Channel deemed “Without question the most mind-blowingly grotesque film to screen at this year’s fest.” EXCISION boasts an impressive and eclectic cast including AnnaLynne McCord (The CW’s “90210,” Transporter 2, Fired Up, FX’s “Nip Tuck”), Traci Lords (Blade, Zack & Miri Make a Porno, Cry Baby), 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, and Academy Award® winner Marlee Matlin.
Based on writer/director Richard Bates, Jr.’s short film of the same name, EXCISION follows a disturbed and delusional high school student, Pauline (AnnaLynne McCord). Pauline, with aspirations of a career in medicine, goes to extremes to earn the approval of her controlling mother (played by Traci Lords). While dealing with both being an outcast teenager and having an obsession over curing her sister’s cystic fibrosis, Pauline becomes increasingly deranged as her fascination with surgery and flesh and blood grows into something compulsive and demonic, if not epic.
