"Seems so real that you need to Google fact check it!"
5 stars"

Honestly, I'd much rather watch the Saw movies than this one, but in saying that it's worth sticking around until the end! The special effects are convincingly real (don't stop watching at the duckling scene, it was actually just a real looking special effect – we Googled it just after it happened!) and make you cringe like a lot of horror movies can't. It's unlike most movies we've ever seen, so don't really know how to describe it!

The House That Jack Built

USA in the 1970s. We follow the highly intelligent Jack (Matt Dillon, Crash) over a span of 12 years and are introduced to the murders that define Jack's development as a serial killer. We experience the story from Jack's point of view, while he postulates each murder is an artwork in itself. As the inevitable police intervention is drawing nearer, he is taking greater and greater risks in his attempt to create the ultimate artwork.

Along the way we experience Jack's descriptions of his personal condition, problems and thoughts through a recurring conversation with the unknown Verge (Bruno Ganz, Downfall) – a grotesque mixture of sophistry mixed with an almost childlike self-pity and psychopathic explanations. The House That Jack Built is a dark and sinister story, yet presented through a philosophical and occasional humorous tale.

Critic Reviews:

  • " The House That Jack Built is both one of 2018's best films and, I can easily say, a film that I'll likely never watch again. " – Richard Propes
  • " As the film progresses into its last stretches, it proves itself to be bizarrely satisfying, recontextualizing itself into something much grander in sadness and scope. " – Matt Cipolla
  • " The House That Jack Built is the best kind of cinema, the kind that provokes and challenges the viewer to digest the horrors on screen and deconstruct it layer by disturbing layer to discover the filmmaker's true message. " – Dan Tabor
