31 scary movie moments – 4) The fox in Antichrist (2009)

Lars Von Trier’s intriguing, beautiful and repulsive horror film about He (Willem Dafoe), She (Charlotte Gainsbourg) and the grief of losing a child has its truly disturbing moments – genital mutilation being amongst some of its most graphic imagery. The film’s not really that scary to be honest, just high on shock value, and we pretty much know what to expect from Von Trier – he is a master of shock and playing around with the emotions of his audience. However, when you come across a self-disembowelling fox that rasps ‘Chaos Reigns’ at you, yep that jam is pretty eerie. Please get out of our dreams, Mr Fox.
