What are people saying?

  • Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Excision

    An 18-minute short film version in 2008 of the later feature film, Excision. It clearly laid the groundwork for Bates mind-blowing 2012 full-length debut, right down to the same climax and final shot. Yet, it's evident Bates' camera eye improved, as did his command of the acting. This short just doesn't work as great when compared to the phenomenal full version. Apples and oranges, maybe... but still quite true.
