Directed by Lars von Trier
A husband must deal with his wife’s dangerous behavior after the death of their son in Danish provocateur Lars Von Trier’s notoriously gruesome arthouse shocker. After their son falls out a window while they're having sex, a man (Willem Dafoe) and his wife (Charlotte Gainsbourg) retreat to their rural cabin. But something strange is in the air, and soon Gainsbourg’s obsession with evil women puts her husband’s life - and body parts - at risk. Audience members at film festivals experienced panic attacks and vomiting during two particularly sickening scenes.

im still sitting here thinking "what the f*ck did i just watch" i thought it was beautifully done. I would have given this five skulls if it hadnt been a half hour too long ..
one of the best slow burns! the way it all comes together right at the end makes it so worth it. dafoe is incredible
I watched this movie ten years ago and am still emotionally scarred from beginning french noir penetration scene with the *edit* out the window to the penis double because the director thought Dafoe’s penis was too large and would distract from the scenes and let me tell you no matter the size of the penis, what happens before will be forever etched in your brain like what happens after. Emotionally scarred.
