Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Calculatedly ugly and undeservedly controversial."
‑ Rob Nelson, Variety
"Rewards your endurance with an utterly insane 30-minute climax of violence, audacious gore and all-around bad behavior."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"...The Woman suffers from a pervasively low-rent feel that remains a distraction from start to finish..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"McKee, never one to shy away from controversy, juggles some impressive themes, including civility, raw emotion and the true nature of crime."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Feral woman meets a lawyer/monster."
‑ Victoria Alexander,
"Not only is it banal in a kitchen sink way, it's just a reiteration of the same argument."
‑ Maggie Lee, Hollywood Reporter
"The characters and the audience alike will have to endure much misery and a ham-fisted illustration of gender dynamics, offered up as an especially cockeyed comedy of manners..."
‑ William Goss,
"There are really no artistic merits to be found here. The film glorifies violence and is overly offensive in every way possible."
‑ Blake Griffin, We Got This Covered
"[G]naws at our notions of what's proper and what's improper, dredging up unexpected horrors from the most banal of ordinariness..."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"... despite its reputation as a gratuitous shockfest, (it's) tense, well-paced, and does have some social commentary to make. By way of screaming, of course."
‑ Norm Schrager,
"Subtle as a mugging and gleefully outrageous, "The Woman'' is a feminist parable disguised as a sicko midnight horror movie."
‑ Ty Burr, Boston Globe
""The Woman" is a pretty good horror movie, with interesting performances."
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"I wish this movie were as offensive as it wants to be: that revulsion would have given me something to do during this movie other than watch it."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"The Woman suggests that perhaps May was merely a fluke. A bafflingly angry, ugly demonstration of dehumanization, the feature is a glacial, low-rent addition to the suffering subgenre."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"Suspenseful, disturbing and creepy. Pollyanna McIntosh gives a raw, brave performance."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
