One of the frustrating things about not attending certain film festivals is being shut out of the conversation on some of the bigger titles playing there. At Sundance this year, Lucky McKee‘s horror film The Woman generated enough controversy to the point where I think it has earned such a distinction.
Praised and condemned for its violent and disturbing content, the trailer for the movie has now arrived at Twitch. The preview almost makes the movie look like a dark comedy, something that I wasn’t expecting. I don’t know how indicative it is of the actual film, but I think that it could make it look more appealing to a wider audience than a preview simply showing horrific imagery. Ever since May, McKee has been known for being somewhat relentless in his approach to the genre, and early word indicates he hasn’t changed things. I’m curious to check this out, and I hope we hear of a U.S. release soon; I imagine that a movie which has gotten so much attention will show up in America at some point in the near future.. But no matter how it performs upon release, at least one person won’t be giving it another shot.
Watch the trailer below:
Written by McKee and Jack Ketchum, The Woman stars Sean Bridgers, Angela Bettis, Zac Rand, Shyla Molhusen, Lauren Ashley Carter, and Pollyanna McIntosh.
