Excision (2012) feat. Wren Crain
Prep your dream fantasies and your give no fuck attitude because we're checking out Richard Bates Jr's Excision (2012). Joining us to talk about Traci Lords and AnnaLynne McCord's powerhouse performances is Transploitation author and Sick Sad Monsters co-host Wren Crain, who contributes a candid and personal reading about mental illness in the film. CW: Necrophilia, Abortion
Up for discussion: why McCord's Pauline is a queer icon, the film's rude and crude comedy (hint: it's tied to abjection!), and age appropriate crushes on Jeremy Sumpter.
Plus: comparisons to May and Ginger Snaps, tangents about Gilmore Girls AND Monster-In-Law (?!), another sexually charged locker room scene and *a lot* of feelings about the ending.
