This Friday, October 14 Bloody Disgusting Selects will release Lucky McKee’s widely controversial The Woman in limited theaters across the country (indie theaters, AMC theaters). The film, starring Angela Bettis, is a disturbing tale of torture and dirty little secrets that can haunt any seemingly harmless neighborhood.
In addition to the previously released footage, after the break you’ll find a new clip where star Pollyanna McIntosh gets one of most violent showers you’ve ever seen. In addition, we’re very excited to announce that Zach Graham has won our fan made poster contest (he scored all of the Selects titles on DVD and 8 tickets to see The Woman). His winning art can be viewed inside as well!
“The story follows a successful country lawyer who captures and attempts to “civilize” the last remaining member of a violent clan that has roamed the Northeast in the wild for decades, thereby putting the lives of his family in extreme jeopardy.”
Starring Pollyanna McIntosh, Sean Bridgers and Angela Bettis, the film prompted furious debates and walkouts during its world premiere in the Park City at Midnight program at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. Reports surfaced of people becoming sick while watching the graphic scenes and one irate Sundance audience member went so far as to say THE WOMAN “ought to be confiscated, burned. There’s no value in showing this to anyone.” Whether a “wonderfully bizarre tale” or an “inhumane degradation of women,” you’ll have to decide for yourself.
