The Director’s Cut of ‘The House That Jack Built’ Popped Up for Purchase on YouTube… and Then Vanished



Following last week’s “Director’s Cut” screenings that landed IFC Films in hot water with the MPAA, Lars von Trier’s The House That Jack Built is headed to limited theaters and VOD next Friday, December 14, but the version you’ll be able to stream will be the rated “R” cut, rather than that unrated Director’s Cut. Last we heard, the Director’s Cut is coming next year.

Oddly enough, however, the Director’s Cut actually hit YouTube last night, where it could be purchased for $13.99. It seems the film was available for several hours overnight, but as of this morning, the listing has been completely taken down. And yes, YouTube indeed was promoting their version as the “Director’s Cut,” and many did manage to purchase it in time.

Keep your eyes peeled. We’re wondering if it’ll pop up again at some point…

In the film, Matt Dillon stars as a serial killer who views each of his murders as a work of art. Uma Thurman (Kill Bill), Bruno Ganz (Downfall), and Riley Keough (Mad Max: Fury Road) also star with South Korean actor, Yu Ji-tae, best known to us genre fans as the antagonist in Park Chan-wook’s 2003 hardboiled thriller Oldboy.

Rafael reviewed the film out of Sitges and explained that, “The nihilism of Lars von Trier’s darkly comedic The House That Jack Built rivals American Psycho.”
