Unfortunately for you squeamish readers, the same can't be said for the movie. Director Lars Von Trier has been very outspoken about his art-horror film "Antichrist," going as far as declaring himself "the world's greatest director" at Cannes this year. It's a slow, simmering build to the violence, extremely graphic violence, making it all the more shocking when the plot takes its nasty turn.
The story follows an unnamed husband and wife -- Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg -- who hide away in their remote cabin in the woods shortly after the accidental death of their toddler. He, as Dafoe's character is called, is a psychoanalyst who attempts to help his wife get through the difficult moment by forcing her to face her fears. Things get progressively creepier until a late-game explosion of violence brings things to a close with a brief, agonizing roller coaster ride. In the exclusive image after the jump, you can see Von Trier standing with a smiling Gainsbourg, an expression she doesn't wear much in the film.
