New To Blu: Excision - Halloween Horror #4

click to purchase
New this week to the high def format is the brain twisting horror film, Excision. As much an experimental feature as it is an exercise in outlandish terror, this is one of the most disturbing films I've seen in months. There are no actual comparisons for this film. In short, I'll say that this movie could be called an artistic version of We Need To Talk About Kevin if Gregg Araki had directed it and the star was a perverted teenage girl obsessed with medical procedures and blood. Weird, I know.

AnnaLynne McCord's performance as a delusional teen under the control of an overbearing god thumping mother,Traci Lords, is by far one of the most distinct portrayals in recent history and definitely one of the most twisted. Lords is also priceless as she continues to make forward strides in the world of professional acting. Needless to say, she still looks great. Roger Bart continues to trudge along playing the same character he's played for years while McCord and Lords easily steal the show.

Fans of horror and the macabre will absolutely enjoy this off the wall suburban horror film. It's not an easy movie to watch, but the stunning cinematography and different approach make this a must see for anyone that likes horror films or modern tales that stray from the beaten path. I wasn't sure going in but ultimately enjoyed Excision. But, I'm weird.
