Walked out on LarsvonTrier . Vile movie. Should not have been made. Actors culpable— Showbiz 411 (@showbiz411) May 14, 2018
Controversial award-winning director Lars von Trier's psychological horror movie The House That Jack Built premiered at the Cannes Film Festival on Monday night and was so intensely gory that over 100 people walked out of the theater, Variety reports.
The movie follows Jack, played by Matt Dillion, who commits serial murders for a decade in the state of Washington in the 1970s and 1980s. Jack mutilates and strangles his victims in a film von Trier describes as a celebration of “the idea that life is evil and soulless.”
