The anonymous accuser refused to be interviewed for the documentary, likening the producers’ refusal to take a no for an answer to Hammer’s alleged conduct.
Armie Hammer’s fall from grace is the subject of House of Hammer, a new three-part documentary from Elli Hakami and Julian Hobbs. The actor, who was once responsible for movies like ‘The Man From UNCLE’ and ‘Call Me By Your Name,’ is now reportedly working as a timeshare salesman in the Cayman Islands following multiple allegations that he was trying to alarm women forcing sexual activity. His interest in cannibalism and his alleged encouragement to eat a woman’s ribs have received the most attention in pop culture, but the allegations all fit together to form a pattern of abusive behavior.
The allegations started snowing in 2021 after Effie, a 26-year-old European woman identified by her first name only, accused Hammer of rape in a press conference held by her lawyer. (Hammer’s attorney denied the claims.) But even though Effie wants to see Hammer in court, that doesn’t mean she’s excited about the documentary.
A new story in the Los Angeles Times reveals that Effie was originally approached to appear in House of Hammer but felt the entire project was inappropriate. When Effie declined to be interviewed for the documentary, she sent producers a written statement that read, “It is utterly inappropriate of you to take advantage of such a tragic, vulnerable time in so many people’s lives, with no regard for our healing process and ours.” Privacy .”
Effie also declined to be interviewed for the Los Angeles Times article, although she did provide another written statement expressing her disapproval of the documentary and the process that led to its making.
“The way they took advantage of my trauma is disgusting,” she said. “When I keep screaming ‘no’ and they go ahead and say they don’t need my permission, they remind me of Armie.”
The documentary, now streaming on Discovery+, has received mediocre reviews from critics. IndieWire’s Kristen Lopez wrote, “‘House of Hammer’ is for the person who doesn’t know much about pop culture, doesn’t spend time on social media and watches a lot of by Discovery+. It’s a google search for people who don’t want to read long articles. It’s good. But to sell it as a multi-generational family story with all the horrors of the Marquis de Sade is a bit of an exaggeration.”
