THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT Director’s Cut to Screen for One Night Only in Advance of R-Rated Release

You have to have a bit of a masochistic streak to even attempt watching a movie by controversial filmmaker Lars von Trier. Perhaps best known for his anti-Eden allegory Antichrist, a film that featured graphic scenes of genital mutilation, von Trier was also banned from Sundance after making remakes sympathetic to Nazis while promoting Melancholia. So, when audiences at Cannes walked out of his most recent feature, The House That Jack Built, in droves, those of us in the know were hardly surprised.

For a certain segment of horror fans, the controversy and rumors of extremely graphic/violent content only make The House of Jack Built more appealing. While the film is getting a theatrical release on December 14th, fans of envelope-pushing depravity will have the opportunity to see the same version of The House that Jack Built that repulsed audiences at Cannes. The only catch is that the Director’s Cut will screen for one night only on November 28th.

To get an idea of whether or not The House That Jack Built is something you want to subject yourself too, give the synopsis and trailer a look-see below.

In five episodes, failed architect and vicious sociopath Jack recounts his elaborately orchestrated murders — each, as he views them, a towering work of art that defines his life’s work as a serial killer in the Pacific Northwest.

The House That Jack Built stars Matt Dillon, Bruno Ganz, and Uma Thurman.
