Armie Hammer and the Hammer family are the subject of a new investigative documentary series that puts the troubled actor’s private life back in the spotlight. Discovery+ debuted the shocking trailer for House of Hammer Wednesday where two of Armie’s exes speak on camera about alleged abuse.
Courtney Vucekovich and Julia Morrison share alleged messages and voice notes from Armie detailing his alleged sexual and cannibalistic fantasies, which set off a social media firestorm last year.
“I have a fantasy of making someone prove their love and affection and tying them up in a public place at night and using their bodies for free use,” an alleged message from the actor to Morrison reads. “And to see if they’ll fuck strangers for me.”
A voice memo from a man who sounds like Armie is also played: “My effort was to show up at your place and completely tie you up and incapacitate you and then be able to do whatever I wanted with every hole in your body until I was done with you.”
The trailer reveals an Instagram message Armie allegedly wrote to a woman in which he allegedly says he’s “100% a cannibal” and “I want to eat you.”
“He’s pushing your boundaries a little bit at a time. You’re his, completely,” Vucekovich says in the trailer. She dated Death on the Nile star in 2020. Vucekovich was one of the first women to speak out after graphic DMs were leaked in January 2021. She claimed during their relationship that he talked about wanting to break her ribs and “eat” them.
IN House of Hammer trailer, a handwritten note is shown that reads, “I’ll bite the hell out of you.” Images of ropes also flash on the screen.
“He was just acting crazy,” Vucekovich adds. “The ropes were around your neck, your wrists, your ankles, you’re just completely immobilized. I closed my eyes until it ended.”
Armie, the great-grandson of oil tycoon Armand Hammer, was accused of rape last year, but after an investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department, no charges were filed by the district attorney’s office. The actor has strongly denied all allegations of sexual abuse and claimed through his lawyer that sexual encounters were consensual. He went to treatment for six months for drug, alcohol and sex problems.
Yahoo Entertainment reached out to Armie’s attorney for comment on the new docuseries, but did not immediately receive a response.
“Every episode of House of Hammer will shed light on a depraved pattern of abuse that extends far beyond the allegations against the disgraced actor. Along with an array of incredible archival footage, the docu-series weaves together a chilling story of the dysfunction and evil that grows behind decades of power and money,” reads a press release for the three-part series.
The actor’s aunt Casey Hammer joins the show and lifts the curtain on the alleged atrocities that ran in her family for decades. Casey self-published a book in 2015 with the title Surviving My Birthrightin which she claimed that her father sexually abused her as a child.
“I’m about to reveal the dark, twisted secrets of the Hammer family,” she declares in the trailer.
House of Hammer premieres September 2 on Discovery+.
