Hey, fans of the CW’s “90210”, you might want to look away, because AnnaLynne McCord’s character in director Richard Bates Jr.’s new horror film “Excision” is a tad … disturbing. In fact, she kinda scares me, to be perfectly honest with you. I suspect anyone expecting the AnnaLynne McCord of “90210” is going to get a rude awakening. Take a look at McCord, as the film’s troubled young female lead, in a not-all-that-helpful counseling session from an EXCLUSIVE CLIP below. Her opponent? Cult film director John Waters, who knows a thing or two about freaking people out.
Based on writer/director Richard Bates, Jr.’s short film of the same name, Excision follows a disturbed and delusional high school student, Pauline (AnnaLynne McCord). Pauline, with aspirations of a career in medicine, goes to extremes to earn the approval of her controlling mother (played by Traci Lords). While dealing with both being an outcast teenager and having an obsession over curing her sister’s cystic fibrosis, Pauline becomes increasingly deranged as her fascination with surgery and flesh and blood grows into something compulsive and demonic, if not epic.
“Excision” also stars Traci Lords, Ariel Winter, Roger Bart, Malcolm McDowell, Ray Wise, and Marlee Matlin.
Coming to DVD and Blu-ray October 16th from Anchor Bay Films.
And here’s an early trailer in case you missed it:
