Darlin'

Darlin'

Directed by Pollyanna McIntosh

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 secret darker than the “sins” she is threatened with, 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, expertly commanding an all-consuming feast on the senses and sensibility in equal measure.

If I recall the Woman was way more intense. This not so much. All in all alright watch. Freedom from religion I can dig it. Scientology, where's a horror flick for that?!

Not bad, but not great. Fundamentally, this movie is a social satire. However, unlike The Woman (to which this is a sequel), the satire is so on-the-nose and one-dimensional that it's hard to really be impacted by it. Characters are simply coded 'good' and 'bad' and there isn't much complexity. This made the movie more goofy than scary or powerful. However, McIntosh as the woman is still fantastic, and I wished this movie was about her instead of the kid. Recommended if you've seen The Woman and liked it.

Beautifully done, creepy and heartbreaking and a SCATHING look at the Catholic Church. It’ll be a re-watch for sure.
