The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

The Woman (2011)

Starring: Pollyanna McIntosh, Angela Bettis, Sean Bridgers
Director: Lucky McKee

While hunting a lawyer finds the last remaining woman from a clan of cannibals who terrorized the Maine coastline. He captures the woman and attempts to civilize her.

My Take:
The sequel to the movie/novel Offspring, which in itself is a sequel to the jaw dropping novel by Jack Ketchum called Off Season.
The violence is heavy here as this woman is beaten, raped, and tortured by a sociopath of a man and to a lesser extent his son. The wife and daughters go along with the father's plan basically out of fear. However, there is much more going on in this tale. Some very subtle dialog and actions reveal far more than seem upon reflecting back on the film.
For the most part I liked it, but there are a couple of scenes with heavy music played over the sequences which give it more of a music video feel than a feature.

Rating: In the middle
