Armie Hammer’s exes, alleged victims and his Aunt speak out against the actor in the new trailer for Discovery+ docuseries House of Hammer.
‘Call Me by Your Name‘ actor Armie Hammer and his family take centre stage a dramatic looking new docuseries titled House of Hammer, from Discovery+.
The three-part series appears to be chronicling five generations of alleged abuses of power by the Hammer men, with a specific focus on the high-profile controversy surrounding Armie since his shocking fall from grace in 2021.
Early last year, several women came forward with allegations against Hammer after disturbing DM screenshots, alleged to be have been sent from the actor, were published on the internet. The initial messages included references to rape, cannibalism, and blood play, along with fantasies including all three.
Claims then levelled toward Hammer included that of emotional abuse, manipulation, and rape – all of which the actor denied.
The more than three-minute trailer, shared August 10, previews interviews with Courtney Vucekovich and Julia Morrison, two of Hammer’s ex-girlfriends who claim to have suffered abuse by the actor.
“I’m here to talk about what happened in my relationship with Armie Hammer,” says ex-girlfriend Vucekovich. “In the beginning, I felt like this was all perfect. This was amazing”, then going on to say how rapidly the situation declined.
The striking trailer shows the women sharing alleged texts, screenshots and voice messages said to have been sent by Hammer, including one seen read by Julia Morrison.
“I haven’t really digested this one,” Morrison begins, before reading aloud a message allegedly from Hammer:
“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 and seeing if they would fuck strangers for me.”
The term ‘free use‘ is is a fairly well-known fetish, which is basically exactly what the name suggests. Mutually-agreed free use would be where one or both parties is always sexually available, regardless of whatever else they may be doing at the time. However extreme or vanilla the practice of free use is applied, as with all things, usually depends on the parties involved.
A voice note allegedly recorded by Hammer is also played in the preview, where you can hear the words:
“My bet was going to involve showing up at your place and completely tying you up and incapacitating you and being able to do whatever I wanted to every single hole in your body until I was done with you.”
The women say Hammer sent disturbing texts, with one which read, “I am 100% a cannibal”. One also alleges he sent a handwritten note which read, “I am going to bite the fuck out of you.”
Also appearing on the docuseries is Hammer’s aunt, Casey Hammer, also a producer and consultant on the show.
“I’m about to reveal the dark, twisted secrets of the Hammer family,” Casey Hammer says in the trailer.
“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”, Discovery’s Jason Sarlanis said in a statement.
“With House of Hammer, we witness truly disturbing details and sinister secrets that money and power couldn’t hide forever”
Since the allegations first broke, Armie Hammer has continued to deny all wrongdoing and maintained that all of his relationships were consensual.
Recently TMZ reported images of someone who looked like Hammer, seemingly selling timeshares in the Cayman Islands. Hammer’s lawyer said the flyer was a fake.
