The Woman (film)
A disturbing tale of torture and dirty little secrets that can haunt any seemingly harmless neighborhood. The story follows a successful country lawyer who captures and attempts to ‘civilize’ the last remaining member of a violent clan that has roamed the Northeast in the wild for decades, thereby putting the lives of his family in extreme jeopardy.
Für diese Festa-Sammlerausgabe hat Jack Ketchum noch selbst seine besten Erzählungen ausgewählt, bevor er im Januar 2018 überraschend starb. Leider hat er es nicht mehr geschafft, diese Ausgabe auch zu signieren.
34 Erzählungen in deutscher Erstveröffentlichung. Geschichten voller Schrecken, die mehr als nur Unterhaltungsliteratur sind. Ketchum steigt tief hinab in die dunklen Abgründe der Psyche.
Stephen King nannte Jack Ketchum den »furchteinflößendsten Autor Amerikas«. Seine Storys werden dich ängstigen und einige sind so verstörend, dass du das Buch einfach zur Seite legen musst, bis sich dein Pulsschlag wieder normalisiert hat.
For this collector’s edition from Festa, Jack Ketchum personally selected his best stories before he unexpectedly passed away in January, 2018. Unfortunately he was unable to sign this edition. This book contains 34 stories published in German for the first time.
These stories are full of horrors that are more than just entertaining literature. Ketchum descends deep into the dark abyss of the psyche. Stephen King called Jack Ketchum “America’s most frightening author.”
These stories will not only scare you but some are so disturbing that you will have to put the book aside until your heart rate returns to normal.

An older, reclusive man, Avery, (Brian Cox) has a best friend in his dog Red. When three teens kill Red for no reason, Avery sets out for justice and redemption, attempting to follow the letter of the law. But when the law fails him, and the boys’ father (Tom Sizemore) clearly defines right and wrong in his own way, Avery must use whatever means possible.
Found at a Catholic hospital filthy and ferocious, feral teenager Darlin’ is whisked off to a care home run by The Bishop and his obedient nuns where she is to be tamed into a “good girl.” However, Darlin’ holds a dark secret and she is not traveling alone. The Woman, equally fierce and feral, who raised her, is ever present and is determined to come for her no matter who tries to step in her way.
Continuing the twistedly vicious adventure of Lucky McKee’s cult hit The Woman, Darlin’ sees standout star Pollyanna McIntosh both in front of and behind the camera.

The Woman is the powerful story of the last survivor of a feral tribe of cannibals who have terrorized the east coast from Maine into Canada for years now. Badly wounded in a battle with police, she takes refuge in a cave overlooking the sea. Christopher Cleek is a slick, amoral — and unstable — country lawyer who, out hunting one day, sees her bathing in a stream. Fascinated, he follows her to her cave. Cleek has many dark secrets and to these he’ll add another. He will capture her, lock in his fruit cellar, and tame her, civilize her. To this end he’ll enlist his long-suffering wife Belle, his teenage son and daughter Brian and Peg, and even his little girl Darlin’, to aid him. So the question becomes, who is more savage? The hunter or the game?
