Fantastic Fest ’09 was incredible on so many levels. Even art-wise. Need some proof? Check out this exclusive one-sheet for Lars Von Trier’s Antichrist which was fashioned exclusively for the festival.
A couple lose their young son when he falls out the window while they have sex in the other room. The mother’s grief consigns her to hospital, but her therapist husband brings her home intent on treating her depression himself. To confront her fears they go to stay at their remote cabin in the woods, “Eden”, where something untold happened the previous summer. Told in four chapters with a prologue and epilogue, the film details acts of lustful cruelty as the man and woman unfold the darker side of nature outside and within.
IFC is giving Antichrist a pre-Halloween theatrical release in Los Angeles and New York on October 23rd, following its initial VOD launch on October 21st, after which we’ll hopefully see a wider theatrical release.
