The wild beast that dwells within us all boils to the surface in The Woman. 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.
A little off..
I gave it 3 stars because, while I'm not a fan of this specific niche of horror movies, it succeeded telling the story well.
Plus, it could have been worse!
