Armie Hammer's exes have made some terrifying claims about the actor in a new docuseries set to air next month.
You can watch the trailer below:
House of Hammer, which is set to premiere on Discovery+ on 2 September, delves into the actor's private life after it was plunged into the spotlight last year when an anonymous Instagram account posted a series of messages that they claimed to be sent from the star – who has vehemently denied the allegations.
The messages were highly graphic in nature, with the person alleged to be Hammer writing they were '100 percent a cannibal' and that they 'wanted to eat' the person they were messaging.
In the documentary, Hammer's exes – Courtney Vucekovich and Julia Morrison – speak on camera about the alleged abuse they suffered from Hammer, playing voice notes and reading messages that are alleged to be from the actor which detail the cannibalistic claims.
"I have a fantasy about having someone prove their love and devotion and tying them up in a public place at night and making their body free use," one reads. "And seeing if they will f**k strangers for me."
Meanwhile a voice note hears a man saying: "My bet was going to involve showing up at your place and completely tying you up and incapacitating you and then being able to do whatever I wanted to every single hole in your body until I was done with you."
Next, a handwritten note is shown on screen that reads: "I am going to bite the f*** out of you."
The doc comes more than a year after Hammer denied allegations of 'violent rape and abuse' after a woman reported him to the police in early 2021.
The woman, who has only been identified as Effie, spoke out about the allegations alongside her attorney Gloria Allred.
"On 24 April 2017, Armie Hammer violently raped me for over four hours in Los Angeles, during which he repeatedly slammed my head against a wall, bruising my face," she alleged.
"He also committed other acts of violence against me to which I did not consent.
"During those four hours, I tried to get away but he wouldn't let me. I thought that he was going to kill me. He then left with no concern for my well-being."
Hammer denied the allegations in a statement issued by his own legal representative.
"From day one, Mr Hammer has maintained that all of his interactions with [the woman] – and every other sexual partner of his for that matter – have been completely consensual, discussed and agreed upon in advance, and mutually participatory," Andrew Bretler said.
"It was never Mr Hammer's intention to embarrass or expose [the woman]'s fetishes or kinky sexual desires, but she has now escalated this matter to another level by hiring a civil lawyer to host a public press conference. With the truth on his side, Mr Hammer welcomes the opportunity to set the record straight."
The documentary also hears from Hammer's aunt, Casey Hammer, who tells viewers: "I'm about to reveal the dark, twisted secrets of the Hammer family."
Speaking of the doc, Discovery’s Jason Sarlanis said: “The accusations of rape and abuse brought against Armie Hammer in the last few years are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the Hammer family. With House of Hammer, we witness truly disturbing details and sinister secrets that money and power couldn’t hide forever.
“This documentary provides an important platform for the incredibly courageous women who came forward to share their stories, and we hope their courage inspires others to continue meaningful conversations around abuse in our society.”
House of Hammer premieres on Discovery+ on 2 September.
