Someone's in the house. He's watching. He's creeping round, only you can't see him. He's watching you from the walls. He's right behind you now. Looking over your shoulder. He wants the remote control. He's a bad boy. He wants to watch bad movies. Bad bad Ronald...

Collective, BloodyDisgusting nab 'Woman'

AMC partnership brings Sundance horror pic to 15 markets

Pollyanna McIntosh in "The Woman"

The Collective and horror website have acquired North American rights to "The Woman," whose graphic content prompted walkouts at Sundance.

Horror pic will be distributed theatrically in at least 15 key markets through the Collective and Bloody Disgusting's partnership with AMC Theaters.

Lucky McKee directed "The Woman" from a screenplay he wrote with Jack Ketchum. It's produced by Andrew van den Houten and Robert Tonino for Moderncine.

Story centers on a successful country lawyer who captures and attempts to "civilize" the last remaining member of a violent clan that has roamed the Northeast coast for decades, thereby putting the lives of his family in extreme jeopardy.

"We are excited to bring this groundbreaking and terrifying film to moviegoers everywhere," said Gary Binkow, a partner at the Collective. "It's a key part of our mission at the Collective to ensure that original, creative voices like Lucky and Jack's can achieve a national platform for their work, and we look forward to the intense conversation this film is sure to ignite."

Pic, starring Pollyanna McIntosh, Sean Bridgers and Angela Bettis, has been rated R for strong bloody violence, torture, rape, disturbing behavior, graphic nudity and language.

The Collective and Bloody Disgusting launched their distribution partnership with AMC for horror and thriller titles earlier this year.The deal was negotiated by Binkow and The Collective's Director of Acquisitions, Roxanne Benjamin with Rob Rader of Schwarcz, Rimberg, Boyd & Rader. John Sloss of Cinetic Media and Jerry Dasti of Sloss Eckhouse LawCo represented the filmmakers.

  1. BR, this IS one disturbing movie. Had a sneak peek online. Guessing you have not seen it yet, so I don't want to give anything away, but let's just say you might feel like taking a shower afterward.

  2. Sneak peek! Naughty naughty. Don't let the Man catch you.

    But seriously... how can you go wrong with a team like Ketchum, McKee, and Van den Houten? Separately, or together, I've love everything they do!!
