"The House That Jack Built" follows a serial killer (Matt Dillon) as he mutilates and strangles his primarily female victims. The Golden State Killer must be kicking himself for not selling the rites to his life story.

The film is a full-blown slasher and boasts a cast that includes Matt Dillon, Uma Thurman, Bruno Ganz, and Riley Keough.

The film is due to released in Denmark in November this year, but as yet has no United Kingdom release date. The House That Jack Built's plot synopsis: "USA in the 1970s".
