Excision Review

excision reviewYear: 2012

Director: Richard Bates Jr

Synopsis (from IMDb): A disturbed and delusional high school student with aspirations of a career in medicine goes to extremes to earn the approval of her controlling mother.

My Short Review:  I had read good reviews about this one and I really DO like the main actress, Annalynne McCord, so I was really looking forward to watching this movie.

Unfortunately, 40 mns in, I could not make it through anymore.

Full disclosure: I was pretty beat when I started watching the movie, so it needed to be extra special to keep me awake and somehow I did not really get into the film so I decided to call it quit at midpoint.

For this reason I won’t be giving Excision a note, as I believe it would not be fair.

What I can say though is that I enjoyed the performances of AnnaLynne as a repressed unpopular girl and Traci Lords as her righteous mom. Not a big fan of Ariel Winter (from Modern Family) though.

Some of the Dream imagery is very well shot and a bit on a gory side. Everything else: the teenage angst, the smartass geeky girl, the jocks, stupid mean girls, a lot of clichés that just bored me and did not manage to keep me awake.

I’m welcoming comments from people who actually made it to the end and please try to make me wanna finish it one day.

My Rating: N/A (it would not be fair to give Excision a rating since I haven’t gotten to the end.
