I don't know what to do after seeing this...
28 August 2009 | by otuswerdSee all my reviews

OK...so I just finished AntiChrist, there has never been a movie that made me feel the way I do after viewing it...it was one of the most emotionally draining, horrific, beautiful films I have ever seen in my life...after watching it I feel like I just watched a loved one die. it took ten minutes for me to calm down and stop crying...this might be one of the greatest horror films ever made. So if you see it, be careful. It is really powerful. I know a little about Von Trier and have seen a handful of his films...this one, for me, takes the cake, over many movies out in the world. If you do get to see this, and are ready for a crazy ride, just remember, think about who you show this to before you do it, it is not for everyone that is into horror.
