Man is Outraged at
Sundance Screening of THE WOMAN
and Insists that the Film Be Burned
The new film from Lucky McKee – of May
fame – had one of those legendary screenings. Six people walked out of
The Woman, a horror film about a feral woman captured by a family that
tries to civilize her through torture and rape. Apparently it’s pretty
extreme stuff, and one of the walk outs actually got hurt – a woman
RUNNING from the theater fell and hit her head. You can’t really blame
the film for that.
One guy was so mad at the movie that he started yelling and had to be
escorted out of the theater. Someone got video footage of this dude
ranting and raving, saying the movie isn’t art, it should never have
been screened and – best of all! – calling for it to be confiscated and
burned. “You don’t know how upsetting this film is!” he cries out
Below are two videos taken from the incident.
