Anchor Bay Films has just issued a press release announcing its acquisition of the trippy thriller EXCISION, starring AnnaLynne McCord, Traci Lords, Ariel Winter, Roger Bart, Malcolm McDowell, Marlee Matlin and John Waters. The flick played at this year's Sundance Film Festival (check out Chris Bumbray's extremely positive review right HERE).
Directed by Richard Bates Jr., EXCISION is the story of Pauline (McCord), a delusional teenage outcast. Pauline picks scabs. Pauline dissects road kill. Pauline fantasizes about performing surgery on strangers. Her fascinations disturb her schoolmates and her parents, Phyllis (Lords) and Bob (Bart). No one understands Pauline except for Grace (Winter), her younger sister who suffers from cystic fibrosis. An outcast at school and at home, Pauline is convinced that the best way to repair her estranged relationship with her family is to perform a risky operation to save her sisterís life.
The distributor has not set a release date for EXCISION yet, but you can be sure we'll let you know when they do.
