With a full trailer coming in the next few days, inside you’ll now find the official UK quad for Lucky McKee’s The Woman (review), which will arrive in limited AMC theaters on October 14 from Bloody Disgusting Selects.
The Woman, from McKee and horror writer Jack Ketchum, is the most controversial film of the year starring Pollyanna McIntosh, Sean Bridgers and Angela Bettis. The Woman, a companion piece to Ketchum’s Offspring, was the center of controversy at this past January’s Sundance Film Festival when an audience member got worked up over its graphic content and said it should be “confiscated and burned.”
From producers Andrew van den Houten and Robert Tonino, “The Woman is the last surviving member of a feral clan that has roamed the Northeast Coast for decades. When the last of her family is killed in a battle with the police, The Woman finds herself alone, severely wounded and vulnerable. Unfortunately, she is now a far too easy prey for local hunter, successful country lawyer and seriously disturbed family man Christopher Cleek. With his twisted set of ideals, Cleek decides to embark upon a deranged project – to capture her and “break” The Woman – a decision that will soon threaten the lives of Cleek, his family and The Woman.”
