The Woman is released 17th October on home release and it will certainly divide audiences much like it did at movie festivals this year. Director Lucky McKee is a very promising horror director and this is perhaps his strongest work yet.
We reviewed the movie for its theatrical release last month and you can read all about it here: The Woman. If you haven’t yet heard or seen anything about the film, check out the three clips below. Do it.
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: 17th October, 2011
