The Woman(Review)[Twisted Throwback Thursday]
So while we are on the subject of controversial horror movies or horror movies that push the envelope, I figured this would be a good time to review Lucky Mcgee's The Woman. This is a movie that is absolutely hard to watch, but well worth checking into.
This is part of a trilogy of films, starting with The Offspring, and the ending with Darling that is based on a violent feral group of humans surviving in the wild and their encounters with "civilized" folk. In this movie, a man decides to trap a feral woman, and decided to do his own brand of rehabilating her to attempt to tame her. He even gets his own family involved whether they want to cooperate or not. Let's just say the man is the worst type to be trying to teach anyone anything. He is abusive towards both his wife and his older daughter, and his son is following in his foot steps to become just as bad as his father is, if not worse.
Through the movie, we see the older daughter of family as she seems withdrawn as well as afraid of her own father. She is also pregnant, and it is strongly suggested that her father is responsible. She is the one besides the youngest daughter that forms an actual bond with the woman that they trap.
Ultimate the woman does get her revenge, and that comes after even after another wild reveal regarding the sick depravity of the husband. It's a very wild and gory ending which leads into the setting up the third movie of the trilogy.
Lucky McGee, most famous for his movie May, does a good job at presenting the material of the movie, and Angela Bettis, who is mostly featured in all of his works, appears in this one as the mother. All in all, The Woman is a very great film but due to very triggering material, it may turn away viewers from watching. If you are curious enough to check it out, it is currently streaming on Shudder.
