The House That Jack Built Matt Dillon Lars von Trier

With the premiere of Lars von Trier's serial killer film THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT set to occur at the Cannes Film Festival just a few hours from now, a trailer has arrived online to offer a preview of the film that the director describes as his most brutal and violent yet. Coming from the director of ANTICHRIST, that means something.

The beginning and end of the trailer are oddly disjointed, but there is a great middle section set to David Bowie's "Fame" – and disturbing glimpses of violence throughout.

Starring Matt Dillon, Uma Thurman, Bruno Ganz, Riley Keough, Siobhan Fallon Hogan, and Sofie Grabol, the film is set in the 1970s and told 

from Jack's point of view. He is a highly intelligent killer who has spent a decade perfecting the art of the perfect murder. But as the police begin to close in, he starts taking greater and greater risks in his attempt to create the ultimate artwork. 

IFC Films will be releasing THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT into theatres in the U.S. sometime this fall. Check out the trailer below and see if the movie is something you'd be interested in seeing.
