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.
“Reminded me of George A. Romero in the way it tries to blend social commentary, pitch-black humor, and a heavy dose of bloody make-up.”
“Mashes up the social horror genre with the coming-of-age tale under the strong influence of a decidedly female gaze.”
– The Hollywood Reporter
“A fantastic debut from Pollyanna McIntosh.”
– Cinema Slasher
“The real discovery in the film is Canny who is a complete revelation here.”
– Daily Dead
