Lucky McKee’s adaptation of Jack Ketchum’s The Woman was definitely one of the most talked about films at FrightFest this year. We’ve seen the film and you can read our review right here: The Woman Reviewed.
But wait! Before you read our non-spoiler opinion, check out the trailer below. The film is released in UK cinemas 30th September.
When lawyer and proud family man Chris Cleek (Bridgers) stumbles across a wild, feral woman (McIntosh) bathing in a woodland stream near his isolated country home, he immediately makes a decision that will dramatically change both their lives.
Chris captures the woman and chains her up in the fruit cellar below his house, intending to tame and civilize her. To assist him, he enlists the help of his long-suffering wife Belle (Bettis), their two teenage children, Peggy and Brian, and even their youngest daughter, Darlin’. But when the task at hand proves to be more difficult than first imagined, the Cleek family’s fascination and well-intentioned compassion quickly turns to abhorrence and sadistic cruelty. Now, the animal in everyone is about to be revealed, along with one or two of Chris’ other little secrets.
UK Release Date: 30th September, 2011
