[Sundance ’12] Review: ‘Excision’ Doesn’t Leave Its Mark

Sundance 2012

Leading into the Sundance Film Festival with an insane amount of hype, Richard Bates, Jr.’s Excision left audiences a little perturbed. The pic starred an uglied up AnnaLynne McCord as a disturbed and delusional high school student with aspirations of a career in medicine goes to extremes to earn the approval of her controlling mother. Traci Lords, Ariel Winter, Roger Bart and John Waters also starred in this coming-of-age horror story that left Ryan Daley underwhelmed.

It’s like a Shakespearean tragedy without the Shakespeare. In the end, all of the subconscious craziness in ‘Excision’ is just an unnecessary afterthought tacked onto an insightful coming-of-age story.
