Product Description

When lawyer and proud family man Chris Cleek (Sean Bridgers True Blood, Deadwood) stumbles across a wild, feral woman (Pollyanna McIntosh Exam, Burke and Hare) bathing in a woodland stream near his isolated country home, he makes a decision that will dramatically change both their lives. Capturing her, Chris chains The Woman up in the fruit cellar below his house, intending to tame and civilize her. But when the task at hand proves to be more difficult than first imagined, he sets in motion a collision course for a brutal showdown between his family and the wild female force of nature...

From author Jack Ketchum (The Girl Next Door, The Lost) and director Lucky McKee (May), The Woman is laced with intense savagery and dark humour that builds to a haunting and simply unforgettable climax.

5.0 out of 5 stars An incredibly original and wicked horror film 5 Sep 2011
Format:DVD
It's fair to say that The Woman is one of the most original horror films to have been released in years. This was my personal favourite amongst all the films that were showcased at this year's Film4-sponsored FrightFest and I can't recommend it enough, this is primarily down to Pollyanna McIntosh's standout performance in the title role. Although it is true to say that the film explores dark subject matter, it does so in an admirable and entertaining way. There are plenty of genuine shocks and psychological twists along the way, with a chilling ending that is sure to haunt every viewer and make The Woman an unforgettable horror film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hard to Define. Hard to Forget. 8 Nov 2011
Format:DVD
Pollyanna McIntosh achieves something that doesn't happen all too often nowadays in this excellent and truly original horror flick. 'The Woman' doesn't speak, but boy does she scare! The performance from McIntosh is sublime and genuinely chilling.

Huge compliments must also go to Lucky McKee for creating this visual feast and for his brilliant creation of the main male character, played by Sean Bridgers. Few 'modern' characters have such complexity and the way the audience is made to feel 'not quite sure' about him from the very start works perfectly.

'The Woman' is a film of two halves. In Part One it looks and feels like a standard horror film, which on occasions you think will decend into a farce. In Part Two it explodes into brutal life in no uncertain terms. As the plot unravels, the tension, gore and fear of Bridgers' character goes through the roof. At the same time, 'The Woman' herself begins to take on subtle 'civilised' qualities. Who is the monster after all?

Other reviews go into more detail, so I'll just say that 'The Woman' is compulsive viewing and an original 'must see' horror film. Beyond that there are some interesting questions posed to the audience and an ending that you just don't see coming.

Better than your average horror flick; 'The Woman' is a tension-filled treat that I'd recommend to anyone. Brutal in parts, down right odd in others it will keep you guessing to the very end.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best of the year! 21 Sep 2011
Format:Blu-ray
The Woman had it's UK premiere at this year's Film4 FrightFest and quite rightly came away as one of the best, if not the best, film of the whole festival. An amazing return to form for the director Lucky McKee (who first came to the world's attention with the film May), The Woman is an outstanding story of a American middle-class father who stumbles upon a feral woman in the woods whilst out hunting. He then decides to capture her and hold her captive in his cellar in an effort to 'civilize' her - a decision that affects both him, his family and The Woman herself. Amazing performances all round (especially by the Scottish actress Pollyanna McIntosh as The Woman), great direction and a brilliant soundtrack - all building to a simply jaw-dropping climax - make this one of the year's MUST-SEE films. Do not miss!

3.0 out of 5 stars A horrible film, but not necessarily a bad one 5 April 2012
Format:DVD
I have to admit to nearly turning this off more than once. I practically picked up the remote every ten minutes or so. However, after sticking with it, I was actually happy that I did. It's no classic and wasn't what I was expecting, but it was different enough to warrant ninety minutes of my life.

I became aware of this film through watching horror films and seeing that people who had watched the films I'd watched had also watched this. Therefore I thought it would be a horror about a feral woman running wild, creating havoc (and probably bodies). However, the feral woman in question gets captured about ten minutes into the film by a well-to-do middle class American family.

From then on, it becomes more of a Hostel-like `torture porn' film. We discover that this supposedly nice family is little better than the feral woman they've captured.

I won't go into too much detail about what transpires as there are a few moments you might not see coming. However, my biggest gripe with the film was lack of any character I felt like I should be rooting for. At the end of the day, if you watch this you'll see people get killed. Will you care? Probably not.

If you're a fan of horror and aren't expecting too much, you may see enough originality in this to go along for the ride.

4.0 out of 5 stars Compelling,powerful stuff. 27 April 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Pollyanna Mcintosh,despite minimal dialogue,gives this horror/thriller something special that lifts it above the ordinary run of the mill releases.
In addition the other actors give excellent,believable performances to drive this film to something above average.
As the story unfolds the plot took unexpected turns and kept the tension to optimium levels throughout.
Without doubt highly recommended.
