Jack is the titular antagonist of the 2018 psychological horror art film The House That Jack Built.

He was portrayed by Matt Dillon, who also played Patrick Healy in There's Something About Mary, Sam Lombardo in Wild Things, and Trip Murphy in Herbie: Fully Loaded.


The film follows the twelve years that Jack was active as a serial killer through 5 "incidents." In the first incident, Jack meets a woman who needed to fix her broken jack for her car. After commenting that she initially thought that Jack was a serial killer, Jack ponders over her words. When she takes her to the car repairman and gets her tire jack fixed, it gets broken once again, but this time, Jack murders her. From there, Jack began to refer to himself as Mr. Sophistication.

His next target is a widow. He convinces her that he represented her deceased husband and could help her with his pension. The widow takes her offer and lets him in. He then tries to strangle her to death in a sloppy manner, but when that failed, he gives her a stale doughnut and water as a means of making her asphyxiate. When that doesn't work, he then stabs her in the heart. Cleaning up the room, Jack is nearly caught by a police officer alerted to the disturbance, but manages to escape. He then places her body in the industrial freezer.

Sometime later, Jack met a single mother and started to date her. One day, he suggests that they go hunting. Jack's true intentions become apparent when he executes her sons Grumpy and George and forces his girlfriend to partake in a twisted picnic before forcing her to walk into a field and shooting her. Jack then decides to stitch a crude smile across Grumpy's face and assembles their bodies into an art piece.

Jack meets another woman named Jacqueline of which he considered her "simple." At this point, Jack reveals to have killed over sixty people and murders her after she tried to alert a police officer about the information only to be passed off as intoxicated. Jack slices one of her breasts off and places it on the back of the police officer's car. He also made the remaining breast into a wallet.

Jack's killing spree would come to an end when he detains five prisoners and tries to kill them all with one bullet. However, upon seeing that the bullet wasn't a full metal jacket, Jack heads to the store to buy the right brand. His friend S. P. attempts to hold him in gunshot after alerting the police, but Jack tries to appeal to his nature, taking it as the opportunity to kill him when his guard was down. Jack then murders a cop before meeting Verge. He reminds Jack that he never finished his house, leaving Jack to construct a morbid one out of his victims' corpses.

Following the Verge through Hell, Jack tries to justify his actions as being for the sake of art only for Verge to deride him of his delusions of grandeur. He shows Jack that his bridge had burned down years ago, thus making it apparent that Jack would be condemned for his crimes. Jack feebly tries to escape his fate by escaping Hell, but he loses his grip on the walls and falls into the eternal pit below.
