Re: The Woman

My film of the festival

Just noticed that this film could be read as a sequel / companion piece to the other Jack Ketchum scripted movie Offspring. in which Pollyanna McIntosh plays the role of "woman" - part of a clan of feral cannibals.

Re: A Serbian Film - PULLED from line-up

Wow - quite an experience. A powerful and disturbing film that more than delivered upon the hype. My head is still reeling from some of the images put up on screen last night, a film that I wont forget in a hurry, but not one I will be revisiting any time soon. I don't know enough about the Serbian ...
