There are really no artistic merits to be found here. The film glorifies violence and is overly offensive in every way possible.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/10

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.

October 21, 2011
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...
December 8, 2011
Not only is it banal in a kitchen sink way, it's just a reiteration of the same argument.
October 30, 2011
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.

November 27, 2011
Subtle as a mugging and gleefully outrageous, "The Woman'' is a feminist parable disguised as a sicko midnight horror movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
January 22, 2014
...The Woman suffers from a pervasively low-rent feel that remains a distraction from start to finish...
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
September 29, 2011
An overhyped and crudely constructed little item - you wouldn't need to be repulsed to find ample reasons to leave.

[A] barely competent domestic thriller, bound to make you groan more than think.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
October 5, 2011
More exploitation sleaze than serious provocation.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
January 4, 2012
Calculatedly ugly and undeservedly controversial.
October 2, 2011
It's a muddled, muffled, extremely unpleasant film that fails to illuminate the true story on which it is allegedly based.
October 11, 2011
The Woman never gets under the skin, and its artsy-languid pacing and incessant lite-metal commentary tunes finally seem like part of an effort to disguise what it really is: torture porn for people who'd never admit to liking torture porn.
October 13, 2011
"The Woman" is an affront to human decency that no self-respecting critic (even this tolerant horror fan) would enthusiastically endorse.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
October 13, 2011
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
August 21, 2011
Less of a horror movie and more of a jet black satire of good ole' fashioned American family values, The Woman tackles gender politics in a way you've never seen them tackled before.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

McKee is a real voice for the horror genre; he doesn't let the violence negate his keen-eyed examination of middle-class insulation, nor the other way around.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
September 29, 2011
McKee not only succeeds in taking us to the most depraved depths of the human soul but also makes no apologies ...
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
January 31, 2012
It's an unflinching and ballsy film which serves as a great reminder that there's still powerful storytelling alive in the horror genre
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
October 5, 2011
McKee and his co-writer, novelist Jack Ketchum, take the bitty and occasionally sluggish narrative from matter-of-fact realism to all-out nastiness.
