The Woman is a weird horror film about a lawyer out in the country with his family who finds and abducts a feral woman. Literally, she’s wild. And he and his family try to civilize her, but I don’t think they’re particularly civil themselves.
Honestly, I just watched the trailer, and I’m sorta disturbed. It’s weird. I feel like the film might come across as trying too hard, but at the same time it weirded me out.
But I’ve also always wanted to have a human as a pet. That’s why there’s so many chained up in my garage.
Lucky McGee is directing and he wrote the screenplay with Jack Ketchum, and they’re both a bunch of weird sickos. And I’m weird too. I laughed a little while ago when I saw my dog eat a moth. The moth wasn’t hurting anyone.
Now I feel bad. I think the trailer actually caused me to develop a soul. A human soul. Not just a Canadian soul.

What’s Good About It?
Well, it is supposed to be a horror film, so weirding me out is probably a good thing. Also, I now have a soul, which is sorta fun.
What’s Bad About It?
Having a soul is also sorta not fun. I’m starting to feel bad for all the horrible things I’ve done. Not the stuff I said about Canada though. That was the Lord’s work.
Oh, but the film might be a little too overdone and not have much of a story. Just scaring me isn’t enough. You need to make me care.
Our Clever Prediction
I don’t think The Woman will make much of a splash at the box office. But people are stupid. Maybe they’ll all want souls too.
I hope they read this and then make a poster with the tag line “So Horrifying you will Grow a Soul!”
Souls are grown, right?
