All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Excision (2012)

Starring: AnneLynn McCord, Traci Lords, Ariel Winter, Roger Bart, Ray Wise, John Waters, Malcolm McDowell
Director: Richard Bates Jr.

An awkward high school female wants to be a surgeon and gets stimulated by the thought of blood. She has no friends aside her younger sister, who has Cystic Fibrosis, and her mother struggles to connect with her. But she has a plan to her family.

My Take:
Take away the grusome imagery and the movie is a tale about the relationship between a misunderstood teenage female and a controlling mother. For the most part, each of them has given up on trying to find a common ground with one another and instead focus on the younger sibling in need of a transplant. A solid cast pushes along the somber tone with major props going to McCord. This will be probably be a movie a person either will really enjoy or simply hate.

Rating: So Good

  1. This is in my Netflix Queue, glad to hear you liked it. It does seem polarizing.
