Anchor Bay Films presents the harrowing coming-of-age horror film Excision, from writer/director Richard Bates, Jr. Excision boasts an eclectic cast including AnnaLynne McCord (The CW’s 90210, Transporter 2), Traci Lords (Blade, Cry Baby), Ariel Winter (ABC’s Modern Family), Roger Bart (Hostel Part II), Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange, Rob Zombie’s Halloween) 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.
