There's A Horror Movie That's So Messed Up Cannes Film Critics Are Literally Walking Out Of The Theatre
This is either really good, or really bad.
Odds are in your life you’ve seen at least one or two disgusting horror movies that had you shutting your eyes.
But a horror movie due out later this year is getting an even bigger response from audience members than just some squeals of fright.
People are actually walking out of it and it’s making those who haven’t seen it even more excited for its release.
The movie is called The House That Jack Built and is about a murder spree of a serial killer over the course of decades.
It stars Matt Dillion and Uma Thurman.
It recently premiered at the Cannes film festival in France where it got a pretty violent reaction from audience members.
Many of them simply walked out due to the nature of the film.
Plenty of them took to Twitter to explain why they left the movie.
I’ve never seen anything like this at a film festival. More than 100 people have walked out of Lars von Trier’s ‘The House That Jack Built,’ which depicts the mutilation of women and children. “It’s disgusting,” one woman said on her way out. #Cannes2018 pic.twitter.com/GsBGCoyHEG— Ramin Setoodeh (@RaminSetoodeh) May 14, 2018
But horror movie fans seem undeterred by the fact that audience members left the movie, it’s actually making them want to see it more.
As one person on Twitter put it the movie is now a "must see" because of the walkouts.
