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.
Lucky McKee and Jack Ketchum’s The Woman comes to DVD and Blu-ray next Monday. Whilst you’re waiting for our definitive review to arrive, why not check out the trailer and see what you think? Will you be rushing out to buy this come Monday?
Alan Kelly has been at it again, and this time he’s only gone and tracked down Lucky McKee, co-writer and director of horror sensation, The Woman. If you haven’t already we suggest you check out The Woman book review, but for now sit back and enjoy the interview.
When was the first time you watched a horror film, and how did it affect you?
The first horror film I saw was The Omen, aged six. I remember it vividly and am still scarred from it, literally. My older sister, close in age at eight but far more refined than I, was watching it as she finished a knitting project. In lieu of scissors she was using a long ass carving knife to cut her wool and my six year old curious hands picked it up from the sofa absent mindedly.
