We all know you clicked on this post because you’re a pervert. But not a dirty one – you’re the rare breed of totally respectable pervert that loves tree sex and Von Trier films. As a reward for being so well-rounded, we’re sharing this image from Lars Von Trier’s forthcoming flick Antichrist starring Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg.

The real story here is how artistic that image looks. It’s gorgeous. The framing of the two figures against what looks like a centuries-old tree, the human limbs creeping out like a real world example of the painting hanging in John Milton’s office in The Devil’s Advocate, the overall Dante vibe of the whole thing.

The film is a horror film first and foremost – focusing on a couple who head to a cabin in the woods after their child dies. I’m seeing shades of every cabin in the woods horror film ever made mixed with a hint of Don’t Look Now and a huge serving of Trier’s surreal visual sensibility.
