About the Movie
A domineering, upper-middle class father abducts a feral woman while out hunting. With his twisted set of ideals, he decides to embark upon a deranged project - to "civilize" her – a decision that he and his family will soon regret. Tearing apart the image of the all-American family, director Lucky McKee and writer Jack Ketchum unleash a savage depiction of the sex war and nature vs civilization. Labeled one of the most controversial films of the year, The Woman is a must for fans of horror.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Like David Cronenberg and Roman Polanski, Mr. McKee is a master at drawing suspense from pregnant silences.
Rotten: Calculatedly ugly and undeservedly controversial.
Fresh: "The Woman'' is disturbing, lurid and perverse, but that isn't necessarily bad: Horror buffs, especially fans of Ketchum, will be overcome with joy and excitement.
Fresh: "The Woman" is a pretty good horror movie, with interesting performances.
Mm, I don’t think so.
I started out a bit interested in where these characterizations would head, what story the woman of the Woman would reveal, but we learn nothing about her, or her captors, just that they are mean or mousey and complicit in brutish and lurid criminality. I agree wholeheartedly with Rob Nelson’s (from Variety magazine) critical statement, “Calculatedly ugly and undeservedly controversial.” The movie doesn’t earn the right to, as they say, go there.
