Let the 'Antichrist' Trailer Force You Up Against Its Nightmare Tree

I expected a film called Antichrist, directed by The Kingdom's Lars von Trier and starring supercreep Willem Dafoe (along with Science of Sleep's Charlotte Gainsbourg), would leave me a little unsettled. But shame? Come on. Does it have to also make me feel oddly shameful?

Experience this:

Casting Dafoe seems a bit unnecessary--like von Trier has brought in a disturbing ringer to counter any creepiness atrophy he may have experienced in the weepy arthouse years (Dogville, Dancer in the Dark, etc.) since the pure distilled nightmare juice of Kingdom 1 and 2.
