Mock necrophilia. Decapitated talking heads. Makeshift surgeries. Wild, uninhibited sex bathed in menstrual blood. The midnight film EXCISION, making its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, is without question the most mind-blowingly grotesque film to screen at this year’s fest—so much so that at the press and industry screening I attended, about half the audience walked out in disgust (I can make this assumption since each exit followed a particularly gruesome scene).

Pauline, played by 90210’s AnnaLynne McCord, it not your normal gal. An 18-year-old, Neanderthal-ish high school senior with bushy eyebrows, acne, hunched posture, and plagued by a herpes infection she contracted as a young child from her father performing mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, she’s an outcast at high school. She also desperately wants to lose her virginity…while she’s having her period.
