About Excision

Pauline wishes that reconnecting with her mother was as easy as picking scabs. She also wishes that fixing her sister’s lung disorder was as simple as dissecting road kill. Maybe the other girls at school would be nicer to her if they knew she fantasized about performing surgery on them. Pauline, a social misfit at home and highschool, the traditional neglected teen she takes refuge in the bizzare dreams that once haunted her. As the lines of reality blur, she begins to orchestrates a shocking plan to prove her worth to her disapproving parents and bullying peers. A twisted body horror surgical sensation, Pauline’s twisted tale is sure to get under your skin…and stay there.

May very well be the best independent horror film in years


Excision is a supremely nasty piece of work in the best way possible
