A confident, rough, and confrontational horror film.

...The Woman suffers from a pervasively low-rent feel that remains a distraction from start to finish...

There are really no artistic merits to be found here. The film glorifies violence and is overly offensive in every way possible.

I wish this movie were as offensive as it wants to be: that revulsion would have given me something to do during this movie other than watch it.

McKee, never one to shy away from controversy, juggles some impressive themes, including civility, raw emotion and the true nature of crime.

It's an unflinching and ballsy film which serves as a great reminder that there's still powerful storytelling alive in the horror genre

Calculatedly ugly and undeservedly controversial.

Not only is it banal in a kitchen sink way, it's just a reiteration of the same argument.

Subtle as a mugging and gleefully outrageous, "The Woman'' is a feminist parable disguised as a sicko midnight horror movie.

[G]naws at our notions of what's proper and what's improper, dredging up unexpected horrors from the most banal of ordinariness...

The Woman suggests that perhaps May was merely a fluke. A bafflingly angry, ugly demonstration of dehumanization, the feature is a glacial, low-rent addition to the suffering subgenre.

Rewards your endurance with an utterly insane 30-minute climax of violence, audacious gore and all-around bad behavior.

Feral woman meets a lawyer/monster.

... despite its reputation as a gratuitous shockfest, (it's) tense, well-paced, and does have some social commentary to make. By way of screaming, of course.

The characters and the audience alike will have to endure much misery and a ham-fisted illustration of gender dynamics, offered up as an especially cockeyed comedy of manners...

Suspenseful, disturbing and creepy. Pollyanna McIntosh gives a raw, brave performance.

"The Woman" is a pretty good horror movie, with interesting performances.

Excitingly unique, deeply disturbing, and beautifully macabre. Why can't more films be as proudly one-of-a-kind as this one?

Like David Cronenberg and Roman Polanski, Mr. McKee is a master at drawing suspense from pregnant silences.

(S)omething of a masterpiece - a weird work of art, but a surreality to celebrate none the less.
