The Woman Cast: Sean Bridgers, Pollyanna McIntosh, Carlee Baker, Shana Barry, Marcia Bennett
Director: Lucky McKee
Synopsis: Fresh from Sundance, where it was met with outrage and controversy, Monster Pictures is proud to unleash this modern-day horror masterpiece upon an Australian audience. Based on a novel by award-winning author Jack Ketchum, The Woman is one of the most harrowing and original American horror films for many decades.
Chris Cleek (Sean Bridgers, Deadwood) is a small town court officer living a quiet, seemingly normal life in the heart of Maine with his beloved family. That is, until he discovers a feral woman roaming the woods and makes it the family's project to civilise her. But as the family's methods of forcing civility upon the woman become ever more extreme, the perverse bonds uniting them unravel, exposing the darkness within.
A household name for horror fans, Lucky McKee returns to controversy with a brutally unsettling, darkly humorous take on the seething undercurrents of the American nuclear family. The Woman has been hailed by some as a subversive masterpiece, by others as simply stomach-turning. Whatever you decide, The Woman promises to be one of the most talked about films of the year.
Release Date: August 18th, 2011
