Anchor Bay to release 'Excision'

On October 30th Anchor Bay will be releasing to Blu-ray/DVD the rather good looking flick Excision. It certainly looks like it will be a film to give modern horror a good kick in the ass, but you can judge for yourself by checking out the trailer below. Also included are the full details of this release.

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), 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 of the 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).
