Excision

Year 2012
Runtime 81 mins
Alberta Premiere
Pauline has never been popular. It's not just the acne, either. Or the cold sores. It's not even the complete distaste for social convention. It might have something to do with her obsession with amateur surgery, though. Not to mention her fondness for bodily fluids. Come to think of it, it's probably a good thing that her classmates can't see her day- dreaming about dead bodies and blood-soaked sex. Expanded from his award-winning 2008 short, writer-director Richard Bates Jr.'s Excision has stunned audiences and critics alike at the Sundance and Fantasia festivals with its Grand Guignol grotesquerie. Proving its debauched pedigree with appearances by Traci Lords, John Waters and Malcolm McDowell, Bates's feature-length debut is an astounding exercise in repulsion, a character-driven gross-out that announces a disturbing new vision in the world of horror.
