One film I’m super-looking forward to seeing at this year’s FrightFest is Lucky McKee’s The Woman. Apparently it’s fucked up big style but you can’t really tell how much of it is hype baloney and just designed to get arses on seats. Warning: if you talk a big game, you’ve got to deliver or face mockery. Look what happened to The Blair Witch Project. Sure it made a mint, but the height of its total horror was somebody scratching twigs against a tent.
Total Film got their claws on the new British quad poster and, as posters go, it’s a good’un. The film stars Angela Bettis, Sean Bridgers and Pollyanna McIntosh. The script was co-written by horror novelist Jack Ketchum.
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.
