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.

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

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...

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

"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.

"The Woman" is an affront to human decency that no self-respecting critic (even this tolerant horror fan) would enthusiastically endorse.

The mix of blunt sexual politics and dime-store-paperback luridness has the bracing quality of tub-brewed rotgut.

[A] barely competent domestic thriller, bound to make you groan more than think.

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.
