There are some other problems with sound choices and some of the worst use of music I've heard in any film.Almost every time one of these alt-pop tunes came on all I could think was "Really? " I think only once during the course of the film, did a song come on that I thought "Oh, this almost, sort of works".Unilateral anophthalmia is the congenital absence of one eye, and bilateral anophthalmia is the congenital absence of both eyes.See more » I don't write a lot of reviews but this film gained a lot of publicity after some guy at Sundance walked out (or got kicked out) for complaining about the violence and misogyny in it.What it was lacking was better writing and character development.So adding the review to give people a better idea of what they were getting, since it's presently sitting at an 8.5 with no other reviews.
I didn't find the movie particularly violent for the horror genre.Raised by wolves, the vulnerable last survivor of a cannibalistic tribe bathes wounded in a river somewhere in the lush woods of North-east Coast, where she used to roam free.In the eyes of the misogynistic lawyer, Chris, the naked beast-like savage seems to be the perfect trophy for his home; however, is there a place for a feral, flesh-eating primitive among civilised people?In the following days--bent on domesticating the untamed female by breaking her will--the sadistic man will make the woman his project, as Chris' dysfunctional family struggles to keep the proud predator in captivity.Although, pretty soon, no restraints, no training--and, certainly, no male supremacy--will be no match for the raging woman's raw and merciless retaliation. Chris Cleek repeatedly uses the word "anophthalmia" in reference to one of his daughters.
When a successful country lawyer captures and attempts to "civilize" the last remaining member of a violent clan that has roamed the Northeast coast for decades, he puts the lives of his family in jeopardy.
