Entertainment Reviews:

Chicago Sun-Times - 10/21/2009
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The actors take the words and actions at face value and invest them with all the conviction they can."
Wall Street Journal - 10/23/2009
"[The cinematographer] has created a succession of somber images that refuse to loosen their grip..."
Rolling Stone - 10/29/2009
"The images will singe your eyeballs. Dafoe and Gainsbourg, who won the Best Actress prize at Cannes, fills the screen with ferocity and feeling."
Movieline - 10/21/2009
"Shooting on high-definition digital, director of photography Anthony Dod Mantle coaxes a textured, layered richness from a limited palette of woodland shadows..."
Total Film - 12/14/2009
4 stars out of 5 -- "It's melodramatic, explicit, bleak -- and it looks and sounds incredible....A harrowing exploration of gender, grief and the power of nature..."
Uncut - 07/24/2009
4 stars out of 5 -- "Von Trier's woodland setting is a palpably creepy setting, evoking everything from Shakespeare's dark, enchanted forests to THE EVIL DEAD."
New York Times - 09/08/2010
"[O]ne of those primal moviegoing experiences that return you to the wonder and fear that, when you first encounter them, make movies so thrilling and terrifying."

Product Description:

Only two actors, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Willem Defoe, inhabit the space of this supernatural thriller directed by Lars Von Trier. The stars play a couple who attempt to grieve for their dead child by living in seclusion in the middle of a forest. But their story does not end there: in the forest, they encounter pure evil in Satan. With Von Trier at the helm, ANTICHRIST promises to be a challenging, intelligent film that doesn't adhere to the conventions of cinema or religion.
