The Woman - Frightfest Pre-Thoughts and Trailer

 An (almost) daily preview for each and every movie on the line-up for London's biggest, baddest horror festival, the Film 4 Frightfest


DIRECTOR:  Lucky McKee 


Pollyanna McIntosh – The Woman
Angela Bettis – Belle Cleek
Sean Bridgers – Chris Cleek
Zach Rand – Brian Cleek
Lauren Ashley Carter – Peggy Cleek

They say:
"From author Jack Ketchum (THE LOST, THE GIRL NEXT DOOR) and director Lucky McKee comes a scandalous tale of two extremes, a feral female force of nature and an abusive parent, on collision course for a brutal showdown and the family caught in between. When Chris Cleek discovers a primitive woman in the wilderness on a hunting trip, he traps and locks her up in a cellar to domesticate her. With psychological twists and emotional reveals that keep its haunting climax impossible to turn away from, this stark study of a dysfunctional family is unforgettable."

We say:

While the synopsis of this film doesn't particularly excite me personally I've got a lot of hope in this one.  Director, Lucky McKee delivered one of the horror highlights of last decade with his ultra-low budget MAY.  His newest film reunites him with Angela Bettis (Star of MAY and his Master's of Horror episode, SICK GIRL) which bodes well along with the positive word of mouth it has already received.
This is gonna be one of the standouts of the festival - count on it.

Excitement rating:  Looking damn good.

Playing:   Saturday 27th August  21:00
