Sean Bridgers plays Chris Cleek, an unlikeable man of wealth. He sees our feral woman in the woods behind his house while out hunting. He has a mousey wife (Angela Bettis), a teen daughter, a son who has trouble with his free throws and a young daughter who likes to kiss boys to the horror of her mother. Sean Bridgers orders his family around who pretty much obey him, like zombies, without question.
He captures the wild woman, and rather than turn her over to the authorities, he chains her up in their basement/shed. He is very open about it and shows her to his family who are completely dumbfounded. Chris Cleek rules the roost and doesn't like to be questioned. He reminds me of a creepy Will Ferrell. Their task is to civilize the woman, a woman who wants no master.
The two older children Peg and Brian are portrayed as abnormally reclusive self imposed social outcasts, signs of an abnormal home life. We know this is true because of the lame indie music soundtrack that plays when they are on screen by themselves. Having a scantily clad female chained up around a teen boy brings about some natural curiosity tendencies.
The wife and older daughter feel like a prisoner, like the feral woman who symbolizes their imprisonment. Sean Bridges symbolizes the "system" which imprisons women. There are scenes showing violence to women that were hard to watch, even though we don't see the actual strikes, we see the arm movement and hear the blows.Read more ›
1. This upsetting movie is based on Jack Ketchum’s novel of the same name. If you don’t know Jack Ketchum, he writes award-winning, and controversial, horror novels.
2. It’s the sequel to the movie “Offspring”. But you don’t really need to have seen that movie first. In fact, “Offspring” was pretty terrible. This movie pretty much stands alone..
3. There’s a very early scene in the film during a barbecue, when a boy named Brian witnesses a girl be bullied and abused by other kids. Brian just looks the other way and shoots basketball. It’s a very chilling scene, and lets you know right away that something is Not Right.
4. The main plot is about about a feral woman roaming the woods outside of town (if you have seen “Offspring”, you get the backstory of that). She is found by Chris, Brian’s father. He is a nice conservative lawyer, and he takes her back home. Then he chains her up in the cellar.
5. Chris wants to make the woman he found “civilized”, which really just means he wants to do terrible things to her. He makes his family witness and participate. He especially wants to make sure his son follows in his footsteps.
6. One thing that makes the movie so disturbing is the way we learn about the rest of Chris’s family - his wife and two daughters. Nothing outright is told to us, but we slowly figure out that the whole family is disturbed… for different reasons.
7. The performances of the cast are all solid. Given the sensitive and horrific subject matter, the actors stay true to their characters. This is especially true of Zach Rand, who plays Brian, and Pollyanna McIntosh who plays The Woman.
8. The final act of the movie is outrageous and savage.Read more ›
Parts of this movie were hard to watch, particularly the torture scenes. The father does look like a skinny, dark-haired Will Ferrell who seems like a typical family guy until he goes hunting and finds an unclean, scantily-clad woman in a creek. Bursts of distracting rock music clue you in on his sexual attraction to her as he watches her through his gun scope. He goes home and commands his family to clean out the cellar to make room for something "better than a mountain lion" then he returns to the woods and catches the woman forcefully. Down in the cellar, he uses chains and a winch to suspend her arms out from her sides. She is covered in dirt and she is apparently non-verbal. Her hissing is creepy and unnerving. I decided to keep watching after she bites one of the man's fingers off.
His wife and daughters are sympathetic to the captured woman, but the son is as much of a misogynist as his dad. The boy and his father torture the woman at different times, and she is raped by the father. (It was actually harder to watch the pressure-washer scene than it was the rape scene.) When the mother finds out her son becomes sexually aroused by torturing the woman, she confronts her husband. When he refuses to discipline his son, she snaps and says she is leaving him. She mentions something confusing about "the dogs" being reason enough to go to jail. He proceeds to beat her up in front of the children and everything goes to hell in a hand-basket after that.Read more ›
