I saw this on display at Fantastic Fest a few days ago but didn't think much about it. Apparently this poster for Lars von Trier's Antichrist was created specifically for Fantastic Fest by poster artist David D'Andrea (visit his site: dvdandrea.com). We were just sent an email with a copy of this thing in high res and it's worth checking out. It's a fairly beautiful poster and I think you can actually buy them here in Austin, but I'm not sure if you can order them online or else (check Mondo Tees in a few weeks). As for more review of the very controversial film, check out: Twitch or Fangoria or HorrorMovies.ca. Anyone still interested in seeing this?
A grieving couple (Dafoe and Gainsbourg) retreats to their cabin 'Eden' in the woods, hoping to repair their broken hearts and troubled marriage. But nature takes its course and things go from bad to worse.
Antichrist is both written and directed by prolific Danish filmmaker Lars von Trier, of an extensive number of past films, including Nocturne, The Element of Crime, Dancer in the Dark, Dogville, Manderlay, and The Boss of It All most recently. After premiering at the Cannes Film Festival, the film was picked up for US distribution by IFC. They're now bringing Antichrist to very limited theaters starting on October 23rd.
