Antichrist

When nature turns evil, true terror awaits.


Antichrist
While a couple were busy getting their groove on, their young son has a tragic accident. They are unable to properly come to terms with this, and things between them get very difficult. They decide to retreat to their cabin in the woods to try and repair their marriage, but nature lends an unpleasant hand and things quickly become violent. Note this controversial film is not for the faint-hearted or prudish.

Tomatometer quote iconGruesome, explicit and highly controversial; Lars Von Triers arthouse-horror, though beautifully shot, is no easy ride.
