Watch The Disturbing Trailer For ‘The House That Jack Built’ And Find Out How You Can Watch It Inside A Theater Near You

Controversial filmmaker Lars von Trier made a return to the Cannes film festival this past year after being banned for seven years. He premiered the serial killer drama ‘The House That Jack Built‘ and immediately made everyone regret their decision to let him back in.

People say the movie is overly violent, gross and just plain terrible, which kinda makes you want to watch it, right? Don’t be ashamed.

You can watch the latest trailer for the film at the bottom of the page, but before you do that, you should know that a director’s cut of the movie will play inside theaters for one night only on November 28. This is the version that caused all the drama at Cannes, so it’s probably worth a ticket.

After that, the standard version will be released inside select theaters and on VOD on December 14.

First Trailer For Lars Von Trier’s ‘The House That Jack Built’ Has Been Released (VIDEO)

If you haven’t heard, Lars von Trier warned his fans that ‘The House That Jack Built‘ would be his most brutal/violent project ever, and it looks like he was being 100% serious.

The first trailer for the drama/thriller was released this week and it features Matt Dillon in the title role as a serial killer named Jack.

“Von Trier’s script follows Jack’s development as a murderer, following him through five important killings and providing glimpses into his troubling coming-of-age experience. Uma Thurman and Riley Keough star as two of Jack’s victims.”

It’s set to hit theaters in the fall and we can’t wait to watch it, and then have trouble sleeping for the next week.

As mentioned above, this movie also stars Uma Thurman, Riley Keough and Siobhan Fallon.

Movie Review: Nymphomaniac (2014)

hr_Nymphomaniac_20No Climax despite it being a movie about Climaxes

2 Stars

It feels odd to go from reviewing a children’s movie to a movie about a sex addict, but whatever. Variety is the spice of life.

Nymphomaniac is the story of Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg). Joe is a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who has been seriously beaten and is found by older Seligman (Stellan Skarsgård). Think Black Snake Moan. That’s where the similarities end though. As Seiglemn tends to her wounds she tells the story of her erotic travels.

I’m going to be honest. This was a ‘did not finish’ for me, despite the fact that the movie was all about climaxes. I really felt like I was just watching depressing artistic pornography.  But it wasn’t just porn. It was overly smart self important porn. I know that I might be in the minority, but to me this was nothing more than a director making a movie called ‘this is a woman. Now watch how miserable she is because of sex.”

Joe is self destructive and damaged, but Seiglemn sees a hooker with a heart of gold. By the end, you get so sick of her self loathing and his mumblings about The Compleat Angler and the Fibonacci sequence that you won’t care anymore if people think you’re smart. You’ll just leave.


The writing isn’t strong enough to overcome the overly explicit material. And it is overly explicit, even for a drama about a sex addict. I changed my mind. It doesn’t feel like porn. It feels like a snuff film.

I haven’t seen a snuff film this artsy since the Passion of the Christ.

The writing is juvenile and implausible. The first story in Joe’s stories of conquests is her and her friend on a train, having a contest as to who can hook up with the most men. Yes, I know that the world is crazy and stuff like that does happen, but the director makes it seem as though it is common place.

It seems that filmmaker Lars von Trier has a very bleak view of the world. In fact, I think he may be chronically depressed.



The whole movie was bathed in grey and there was no spicing things up or making them more attractive. Everyone looks depressed and miserable most of the time. Even when they’re getting it on, most of them manage to look like they’re waiting for the bus on a rainy day.

The score feels pasted on and overly simplistic. “Born to be Wild” and “Burning down the House” are tossed in, while heavy metal music from Rammstein is inappropriately pasted over scenes in a way that is both distracting and irritating.

The movie is dirty, smug and self important. There are virtually no redeeming values to a weak script over actors with no charisma. The in your face symbolism does nothing to save the movie. When originally holding the press conference von Trier claimed he was making porn.

He was telling the truth in some ways. Watching this movie will make you feel dirty and ashamed of yourself. This sleazy drama is best skipped.

Here is the Official Movie Trailer….
