Lars von Trier warned his fans that "The House That Jack Built" would be his most brutal and violent offering to date, and the movie's first official trailer suggests the director won't have a problem making good on that promise.
After this ironic encounter gives him a taste for butchery, we see him strangling, stabbing and shooting innocent victims and then arranging their corpses, like shop-window mannequins, in a cold storage unit alongside shelves of frozen pizzas. Even with tickets including a "scènes violentes" ("explicit violence") warning, "hundreds" allegedly walked out of the theater.
According to Variety hundreds of people walked out during the screening of the film groaning and called the movie disgusting.
The House That Jack Built, which supposedly sees Dillon mutilate actress Riley Keough and even a few children, screened out of competition - though it's believed to have been the "day's major festival draw". The film is a dark and grisly serial-killer comedy - but, more relevantly, it's a dark and grisly serial-killer comedy written and directed by Lars von Trier.

These are the same Russian bombers that have been probing our-and other nation's-national air defense since at least early 2017. They said the bombers were escorted by fighter jets and a reconnaissance jet that also acts as an anti-submarine platform.
Taking to social media, numerous members of the press have already deemed the film to showcase continuously "vile" footage and have stated that the movie "should not have been made".
The Oscar Predictor said: "Just left Lars von Trier's The House That Jack Built". Gross. Pretentious. Vomitive. Torturous. Judging by the latest trailer, the project - debuting in the shadow of the Danish director's equally disturbing projects like Melancholia, Antichrist, and both Nymphomaniac films - looks to uphold his reputation as one of the most notorious storytellers working today. Von Trier told The Guardian "The House That Jack Built celebrates the idea that life is evil and soulless", so yeah, it's probably not going to be super fun to watch.
The story follows Jack, played by Dillon, a serial killer who views his murders as elaborate works of art. The House That Jack Built is an uncompromising, barbaric, distressing watch, and one very hard to stomach.
Along the way we experience Jack's descriptions of his personal condition, problems and thoughts through a recurring conversation with the unknown Verge - a grotesque mixture of sophistry mixed with an nearly childlike self-pity and psychopathic explanations.
