Consensus: Strange, audacious, and aggressive, The Woman is an uneven horror flick that game viewers with a wildly bloody finale.

Rob Nelson
Variety

Calculatedly ugly and undeservedly controversial.

Rewards your endurance with an utterly insane 30-minute climax of violence, audacious gore and all-around bad behavior.

The eponymous character in "The Woman" is apparently the last survivor of a cannibalistic, feral tribe. This Tarzan-like jungle woman lives in a cave,… More

***1/2 out of **** It's baffling to me that this film is being marketed as a straight-up horror film; because after watching it, I can say with much… More
