PETA Responds To Graphic Animal Mutilation In ‘The House That Jack Built’

Published

People can’t stop talking about the gory flick ‘The House That Jack Built’ with reports of people leaving the theaters out of both outrage and disgust with just how far director Lars von Trier goes with his latest film.

One particular scene depicts the mutilation of a duckling, to which PETA offered the following response:

“Following numerous calls about a scene in Lars von Trier’s film The House That Jack Built in which a young child uses a pair of pliers to cut a duckling’s leg off, PETA has confirmed that the “leg” was created using movie magic and silicone parts,” PETA’s Senior Vice President Lisa Lange said in a statement emailed to Bloody Disgusting. “While depictions of gratuitous violence like this may leave viewers sickened, it’s true that serial killers, like the character in the film, often get their start by first torturing animals, making the scene all the more realistic and disturbing. PETA is also happy to report that the images of tigers in the movie were from stock footage, yet again proving that there’s no need to use live wild animals in productions, thanks to the many humane alternatives being embraced by filmmakers today.”

The Manor

‘Welcome to the Blumhouse’ is back with four brand new films that are all available on Amazon Prime, and one film is standing out for it’s focus on the ordeal of getting old.

Axelle Carolyn’s ‘The Manor’ is one of the four films that is available to stream on Amazon Prime, and according to the official synopsis:

“A malevolent force preys upon the residents of a sleepy nursing home in The Manor, a gothic tale of terror with a modern twist. When a mild stroke diminishes her ability to care for herself, Judith Albright (The Entity‘s Barbara Hershey) moves to Golden Sun Manor, an assisted living facility with a sterling reputation. But despite the best efforts of the staff, and a budding friendship with fellow senior Roland (Bruce Davidson), strange occurrences and nightmarish visions convince Judith that a sinister presence is haunting the massive estate. As residents begin to die mysteriously, Judith’s frantic warnings are dismissed as fantasy. Even her devoted grandson Josh (Nicholas Alexander) thinks her fears are the result of dementia, not demons. With no one willing to believe her, Judith must either escape the confines of the manor or fall victim to the evil that dwells within it.”
