Nucleus Films have been quietly making a name for themselves recently, releasing some older forgotten genre fare as well as this series of trailer collections. They seem to have recognised that some people enjoy the trailers before a film on a trip to the cinema and have gone back to the golden era of exploitation to handpick trailers that embody the time period of the late 70s to early 80s. It was a time before the infamous Video Nasty era which so sadly optimised the censorship debate in the UK, and exploitation, sex and violence sold even the weakest and cheapest films, regardless of quality.
The Woman, a collaboration between director Lucky McKee (May, The Woods) and author Jack Ketchum (The Girl Next Door, Off Season, Offspring), is the sequel to Offspring. The very fact that there is a sequel to such a brutal, squeamish film is a fantastic testament to the strength of independent film-making in this day and age. It is doubtful that a major studio would have had the cojones to actually fund a project like this so be thankful for the team-up of two horror visionaries.
