THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT Director’s Cut Arrives on Blu-ray in February

The film caused mass walkouts and inspired outrage at Cannes last March is coming to Blu-ray with no punches pulled. Look for Lars Von Trier’s Director’s Cut of The House That Jack Built when it arrives on February 4th courtesy of the fear practitioners at Scream Factory! Give the trailer a spin at the top of the article and familiarize yourself with the synopsis below.

In five audacious episodes, failed architect and arch-sociopath Jack (Matt Dillon) recounts the elaborately orchestrated murders — each, as he views them, as a towering work of art — that define his “career” as a serial killer. Mixing pitch-black humor, transcendent surrealism, and renegade musings on everything from history to architecture to cinema itself, von Trier fashions a radical, blazingly personal inquiry into violence, art, and the twin acts of creation and destruction. Uma Thurman, Riley Keough, and Bruno Ganz co-star.

Boundary-pushing cinematic visionary Lars von Trier (Antichrist) returns with The House that Jack Built, one of his most daring, masterfully provocative works yet. Making its Blu-ray and DVD debut February 4th, 2019, from Scream Factory in conjunction with IFC Films, the two-disc release contains both the director’s cut and the theatrical cut of the film, as well as an interview with director Lars Von Trier as a bonus feature, as well as the theatrical and teaser trailers. Fans can pre-order their copies now by visiting
