ANCHOR BAY BRINGING ‘EXCISION’ TO BLU-RAY & DVD THIS HALLOWEEN

Anchor Bay has announced that, just in time for Halloween, they’ll be releasing EXCISION (see my review here) on Blu-ray October 30th, 2012. If you’ve read my review, you know I’m a huge fan of the film. I know what’s going on my Halloween list (it’s like a Christmas list, but better!).

FROM THE PRESS RELEASE:

On October 30th, Anchor Bay Films presents the harrowing coming-of-age horror film 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.” Boasting an 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), 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) and cameos including director John Waters, Marlee Matlin and Ray Wise , Excision comes to Blu-ray™ for an SRP of $24.99 and DVD for an SRP of $22.98

EXCISION turned critics’ stomachs as well as heads, garnering much attention at festivals this past year. Noel Murray of AV Club calls it “One of the damnedest ‘adolescent misfit’ movies you’ll ever see — for those who can stomach the splatter, that is” and Chris Bumbray of JoBlo exclaims
“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.” Excision holds a 94% “want to see” rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Based on a short film of the same name, EXCISION follows a disturbed and delusional high school student, Pauline (AnnaLynne McCord), who, with aspirations of a career in medicine, goes to extremes to earn the approval of her controlling mother (Traci Lords). While dealing with being an outcast teenager and obsession over curing her sister’s cystic fibrosis, Pauline becomes continually deranged as her fascination with surgery and the human flesh grows into something abysmal and demonic.

Bonus features on the Excision Blu-ray™ and DVD include an audio commentary, a behind-the-scenes featurette, and collectable O-card packaging (for the DVD).



RED BAND EXCISION TRAILER EMBRACES THE WEIRD

Here it is, the official Red Band trailer for the Sundance Film Festival sensation EXCISION, from director Richard Bates Jr. and starring AnnaLynne McCord, Traci Lords, Ariel Winter, Roger Bart, Jeremy Sumpter, Malcolm McDowell, Matthew Gray Gubler, Academy Award winner Marlee Matlin, Ray Wise, and John Waters (who plays a PRIEST!).

In case you haven’t heard of it (and I hadn’t till today), here’s a brief synopsis:

Life sucks when you’re seventeen. Alienated teen Pauline (AnnaLynne McCord) struggles with the pressures of fitting into high school, pleasing her parents and a burning desire to lose her virginity. With a grotesque curiosity for the darker side of life, Pauline is considered a social outcast by everyone around her. Enticed by flesh, she retreats into her own fantasies and hopes to become a great surgeon…that is if she doesn’t go mentally insane first.
