Excision (REVIEW)

“Excision” is a movie that defies categorization. It’s being marketed as a horror film, which, while that label is not entirely accurate, is understandable because the film contains a level of squishy gore and bodily fluids that isn’t typically seen outside of genre affairs. Some might argue that it’s more of a comedy. While it is true that mainstream comedies of the last few years have been incrementally edging up against the line between funny and disgusting, “Excision” gleefully charges past that line and dares the audience to laugh or blow chunks.

Horror Headlines: Tuesday October 9th, 2012

Oh hey everybody, the site's back! Sorry for the short absence, I promise it will never happen again. If it does, blame Mark (always blame Mark). By next week your news-writer Joe should be settled in his new place of residence, and will hopefully be returning to his duties here on the site. While we get back up to speed, make sure you're caught up on all the new podcasts we've been putting out lately.

Lots of headlines today screaming "Watch Audience Reaction for Paranormal Activity 4!". Put that through an honesty filter and it comes out as "Paramount wants you to believe this is still an 'indie' series and we're going along with them". So, all is normal in the genre press.

Daniel Knauf, the guy behind the HBO series "Carnivale", has hopped on board NBC's upcoming "Dracula" miniseries as writer and show-runner. I have not seen any episodes of "Carnivale" and will not watch a Dracula miniseries on NBC. So, not sure what we're doing here.

First Official Stills from "Hitchcock", the biopic which hits theaters November 23rd.

A real nasty clip from "Excision", starring Annalynne McCord. The film gets a release October 16th. No sarcasm here, this is at the top of my 'must see' list.

Check out a sales teaser for "Cabin Fever: Patient Zero". So apparently they're still making those, sure it's going to be great... (sarcasm has returned)

A glimpse into the "Prometheus" film that could have been... Between this and the conversation on our podcast about it, I am never going to be able to enjoy "Prometheus" again. Are you happy now?

In Real People News: 

Man dies during roach eating contest in Florida. So, that's a thing.

Beer truck crashes, people react accordingly... And with that, you know where Joe's been.

Snapshots: "Excision" makes Sundance uncomfortable...

I have no knowledge on the subject but I'm declaring this a sequel to "Teeth". Come on, look at that still, what else could it be? Anyway, this just got picked up by Anchor Bay. So, "Teeth 2" coming to DVD soon...
