Plot – Spoilers:
The Woman addresses the vital question – if you were to chance upon a wild animal in human form – a feral woman to be specific – could she be tamed and domesticated through captivity.
Chris is the despotic head of a family who moonlights as a successful lawyer. His real job profile includes hunting, proudly grooming his psychopathic son in his ways, and showing the remaining females of his family, their true worth and place in his world.
Chris’ world is a fairly satisfied one. But there’s always room for improvement, and this arrives in the form of a feral woman he spots while out hunting. Apart from the invigorating thought of domesticating her in his cellar, there is the attractive prospect of a midnight snack, when the action at home gets boring. So Chris promptly captures the woman, locks her up and hands out specific chores to each member of his family regarding her upkeep.
Chris is played in a disarming, offhand manner by Sean Bridgers and this helps elevate The Woman to a memorable viewing experience.
Also, post-credits, there’s a short bonus scene.
Pollyanna McIntosh aka Jadis in the Walking Dead is one helluva striking woman!
All I can say is that’s effed up! Loved it!
Pollyanna is natural beauty and a great actress……….. love that lady……..all those walking dead episodes and NEVER saw her bush/tits………….that’s effedup
Thx Eum for this great movie, loved it. Good story, nice gore at the end, and a nice soundtrack too. I was glad to see that asshole and his son get it in the end, it was very fitting. Overall a solid film from a director who knows his stuff, he also made a film called ” May ” recently on this site worth a watch too. Cheers all.
this was actually really good. thanks very much
Seemed a bit sexist. 😉
cool film! deranged will ferrell and his little demon spawn got the back hand they deserved!
really fucking cool movie and soundtrack, but a touch saturated with anti-Caucasian male propaganda of tyrants.lol
I bet Lucky McKee is just insufferable to be around.
This one was really tough to sit through, can’t believe this wasn’t a student film. Characters flatter than the paper they were written on, incredibly clunky way on-the-nose attempt at profound allegory, and a shockingly inadequate selection of music that never served or suited the film, scenes or characters. I love slow burn and layered story telling, this ain’t it.
the musical montages, and constant blaring of very shrill music was unnecessary; style doesn’t matter when it’s obnoxious and annoying trying to listen to the dialog while some whiny singer shrieks incoherantly. Also this movie just wasn’t very good at all. The acting was just terrible, and the focus seemed to be more on making a bad music video montage instead of actually making a decent or watchable movie. Also, the constant in-your-face closeup of the same actress was a headache, and the overall style of this movie was just a headache and a chore for me to watch.
this movie was fucking garbage. The only reason anyone pretends to like it is to see the main actress nude
I enjoyed it.
Slight look of TV movie but with a decent budget .. good story .. not terribly believable characters but fast paced and I thought the soundtrack was boss. ..
The kids were all ace .. looking forward to see them making more films ..
Effects were solid . . . Story was ok .
A decent way to spend 98 mins on a stupid bank holiday weekend. .. more please !
Angela Bettis played the petrified wife really well in this one. She was great in May too
Actually a good movie. Soundtrack sucked, though. But they did what they could with their budget, I guess. Can’t blame them for that. Polly is a little hottie after seeing her full frontal. I had kind of a thing for her in The Walking Dead, but couldn’t pinpoint it. This movie sealed the deal with me and her.
