After a firestorm of controversy that began at the Sundance Film Festival, the January 24, 2012, Bloody Disgusting Selects home entertainment release of The Woman will chill your blood and fray your very last nerve. Evil lurks behind a suburban American family in this darkly disturbing film that at once outraged and thrilled critics across the country. Available on DVD, Blu-ray, On Demand and as a Digital Download/Rental, the film has been awarded numerous festival prizes including Most Innovative Feature at the Montreal Fantasia Film Festival, Best Feature Film at the Rio Fantastic Festival, Best Actress at Fright Fest UK and won the Grand Prize and the Audience Award at the Strasborgh International Film Festival.
Produced by MODERNCINÉ, the film stars acclaimed horror cult favorites Pollyanna McIntosh (9 Lives of Mara, Land of the Lost), Angela Bettis (May, TV's Dexter) and Sean Bridgers (TV's Deadwood, Children of the Corn II).
A domineering, upper-middle class father abducts a feral woman while out on a day-long hunting trip. 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 war of the sexes and nature versus civilization. Labeled one of the most controversial films of the year, The Woman is a must for all fans of horror.

This is one of those films that is either love or hate. While I haven't seen it, Charlotte raves about it in her review, while DJ has the opposite opinion when he saw it at Frightfest 2011. I'm a fan of a lot of those involved with this film from MODERNCINÉ to Jack Ketchum, as well as Lucky McKee and Angela Bettis, I'm really eager to see this one. While I think MODERNCINÉ dropped the ball with Offspring, they've more than made up for it with some of the other titles in their catalog. I have some high hopes for The Woman.
