Lucky McKee directs Pollyanna McIntosh, Sean Bridgers and Angela Bettis in this revisionist horror where a family’s twisted patriarch captures a feral woman and keeps her locked up in the wood shed.
Genuinely strange and challenging. Lynch filtered through more contemporary influence like Zombie and Lanthimos. This is real piece of nasty that feminists and misogynists will find much to chew over. The completely loony finale is unpredictable but if you are a fan of extreme cinema you’ll enjoy seeing something quite controlled and measured spill over the top quite so vigorously.
