Excision (Best)

First timer Richard Bates Jr.’s “Excision” was a film that kind of came in under the radar, though which left more of an impression than almost anything else in the horror genre during 2012. The twisted tale of an increasingly deranged misfit teenage girl obsessed with surgery goes to some very dark places in hysterical and over the top fashion, mixing in satirical humour, colourful campery and extreme art gore along the way. With an unbeatable cast of cult favourites including Tracy Lords, Ray Wise and John Waters, it’s not only horrifying, but a sharp and immaculately written affair that arguably provides the most coffin-funny and homicidal take on teen angst since “Heathers”.
