A confident, rough, and confrontational horror film.
February 6, 2012
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

[G]naws at our notions of what's proper and what's improper, dredging up unexpected horrors from the most banal of ordinariness...
October 26, 2011
Rewards your endurance with an utterly insane 30-minute climax of violence, audacious gore and all-around bad behavior.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

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.

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

Excitingly unique, deeply disturbing, and beautifully macabre. Why can't more films be as proudly one-of-a-kind as this one?
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

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.

Director Lucky McKee and veteran horror scribe Jack Ketchum take elements of lesser horror movies...and twists them into a unique and fascinating original.

"The Woman'' is disturbing, lurid and perverse, but that isn't necessarily bad: Horror buffs, especially fans of Ketchum, will be overcome with joy and excitement.

There are times when the movie, through both image and sound, approaches an almost Lynchian type of unsettling nightmare.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
October 13, 2011
This is daring, dark material that approaches satire in its exploration of the hideous underbelly of America. It's American Beauty meets Hostel...and I mean that as a compliment.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5.0

If you are willing to be taken to the edge of horror, this is a picture you'll want to pay attention to.

Like films which imply that the insane are running the asylum, "The Woman" questions the civilization of the civilized with their 'family values' and assigned gender roles.
Full Review | Original Score: B+
October 13, 2011
The mix of blunt sexual politics and dime-store-paperback luridness has the bracing quality of tub-brewed rotgut.
Full Review | Original Score: B
October 12, 2011
Its muddled finale feels like a manifestation of Weezer's 'Undone (The Sweater Song),' but this Woman is undeniably unforgettable, and in a world of carefully measured entertainment that's certainly saying something.
