Ratings & Reviews

  1. spasmolytic's rating of the film Excision

    Casting a really attractive lead would've made it less authentic, perhaps to the point of absurdity, but at the same time it would've I don't know. Made it more enjoyable.

  2. Fabiha's rating of the film Excision

    "Solely based on the definition, I don't know a teenager who doesn't profile as a sociopath."

  3. Nick Schwab's rating of the film Excision

    Mixes horror/dark comedy traits with the dynamics of a domestic drama. The conflict and narrative arc is present but not heavy until near the end: Pauline's descent into madness, and her need to prove herself and connect with her mom (the last shot shows how much this disassociation has affected her.) Excision is a tragedy and an anomaly: a horror-comedy that's dark and disturbing but also oddly heartfelt.

  4. traag-1's rating of the film Excision

    Pleasently surprised by this film. Body horror through a Solandz-Zwigoff satirized lens.

  5. wiwitaek's rating of the film Excision

  6. lepetitjermey's rating of the film Excision

    cute but it feels like a case of missed potential

  7. Catarina C Gomes's rating of the film Excision

  8. sorcery's rating of the film Excision

    Trailer was much better then the movie.

  9. Mariana Basílio's rating of the film Excision

  10. el.'s rating of the film Excision

    Too much of everything, too messy and trying desperately to be gruesome. Also, not BPD.

  11. Lutka's rating of the film Excision

    The horror is perfectly incarnated into the intriguing character of Pauline. Amusing and original film!

  12. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film Excision

    I would have loved this when I was 17. I'm not 17 anymore.

  13. Michael Peer's rating of the film Excision

    This is a horror/drama that doesn't really deliver in either category. Everyone is playing a caricature, so any meaningful resonance goes right out the window. The horror elements are non-existent, unless you consider gore as horror. Surprisingly, Excision's main strength lies in it's humor, which is dry as a bone.

  14. Marianne Kătelyn's rating of the film Excision

    Pauline is the girl of my dreams my pants hurt so much right now

  15. Dorabella's rating of the film Excision

    Favorite female narrative. Great very female horror movie in the same vein as Suspiria or Baby Blood. One of my favorite movies and "horror" movies. Or maybe more like a thriller. Not to mention Traci Lords is in it and she's great!

  16. Bandeira's rating of the film Excision

    Good story. Cool cast. Mediocre Film. "Hollywood 4 cable" version of john water's work for the adolescent masses.

  17. Rohan Berry's rating of the film Excision

    AnnaLynn McCord's performance is superb here as the gawky and increasingly strange teenager Pauline, she is matched by a coldly prim performance from Traci Lords as her suburban mother. Some of the grotesque surgical inserts are like outtakes from a LadyGaGa video, which makes them quite mesmerising. The film has a satisfyingly obvious narrative arc, which enables the dialogue to zing back-and-forth.

  18. Pymo's rating of the film Excision

  19. Daniel Montiel's rating of the film Excision

    Interesting ideas, messy execution and some intriguing performances. Casting Traci Lords was a huge mistake though, and it hurts the film a lot.

  20. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Excision

    Esto es cualquier cosa menos una película de terror. "Excision" tiene de comedia negra, pero yo diría más de drama, uno que es retorcido. La frustración de una adolescente y una madre, es el típico cuadro de una familia escindida y que está marcada por la tragedia; una hija moribunda. Lo molestoso del filme: ese juego alucinatorio que mezcla a Matthew Barney y Lady Gaga en un diseño de arte. Waters...¡vamos!

  21. bbbbbbbbbbbbbbb's rating of the film Excision

  22. Fabio Nosotti's rating of the film Excision

  23. CAMERACCIO's rating of the film Excision

    certo che la scelta di John Waters come reverendo rende il tutto più perverso

  24. Skinnedteen's rating of the film Excision

    Such a huge switch from girl next door in 90210 to a disturbed character in Excision. AnnaLynne McCord did such a good job playing the role of Pauline in this one. Beautiful Kubrik-esque cinematography. Richard Bates Jr. is such a promising director, knowing that this is his very first film.
