Watch: Eerie NSFW Trailer For Bruno Dumont's 'Hors Satan'

To say that director Bruno Dumont is divisive would be an understatement, but the two-time Cannes Jury Prize winner ("Flanders," "L'humanité") certainly has his fans, but even they might be tested with his latest effort "Hors Satan" ("Outside Satan"). Premiering at Cannes last year, it's a ridiculously minimal and frustratingly enigmatic film that we didn't care for that much as we found it mysterious nature dull rather than compelling.

Hors Satan

To say that director Bruno Dumont is divisive would be an understatement, but the two-time Cannes Jury Prize winner ("Flanders," "L'humanité") certainly has his fans, but even they might be tested with his latest effort "Hors Satan" ("Outside Satan"). Premiering at Cannes last year, it's a ridiculously minimal and frustratingly enigmatic film that we didn't care for that much as we found it mysterious nature dull rather than compelling.

This trailer over at Cineuropa is a few months old, but it's the first time it's coming ot our attention, and it's certainly worth a peek. That said, if you want to go in fresh, this trailer does seem to go out of its way to spoil the few "events" in the movie that are there, so proceed with caution. So what is it all about? Well it follows an unwashed drifter (David Dewaele) who orms a friendship with an unnamed girl (Alexandra Lematre) in a village in northern France. He gets by assisting the townspeople with various tasks, but things take a turn for the dark. And that's about all we can say without spoiling anything.

New Yorker Films will release "Hors Satan" into theaters, but no date has been set. Watch the trailer below and just note -- while it's powered by some great music, the actual film has no musical score or soundtrack. Also, in case you're wondering the song in the trailer is "The Reindeer" by Limousine. And it's so good we've included the full song below the trailer, and if someone can let us know more about this band (we never heard of 'em) leave your comments below.
