Disturbing allegations of abuse and control are set to be explored in a new documentary about actor Armie Hammer.
House Of Hammer, produced by Armie HammerCasey Hammer’s aunt, “will reveal the dark and twisted secrets of the Hammer family”.
The 35-year-old actor was hit with a string of accusations early last year after a number of his former partners claimed he was physically and emotionally abusive towards them.
Posts detailing disturbing and violent sexual fantasies including cannibalism and rape – which Hammer allegedly sent – were shared on social media in January 2021.
In March of the same year, Hammer was also accused of rape by a woman in Los Angeles. Police are investigating the allegation.
Hammer has denied all claims against him.
The trailer for the three-part Discovery+ series shows on-camera interviews with two of Hammer’s alleged victims in which they detail some of their alleged abuse.
Voice memos and text messages allegedly sent by the actor are also featured.
A screenshot of the text message, apparently from the actor, states that he is “100% cannibal”.
Appearing near the end of the three-minute trailer, Casey Hammer says, “You don’t wake up and become this dark controller, an aggressor. This behavior, it’s deeply ingrained.”
Alleging that the Hammer family had a problem with violence and abuse across the generations, she continues: “On the outside we were the perfect family, but magnify Succession a million times and it was my family.”
Hit Sky Atlantic drama Succession focuses on the Roy family empire and their affair with politics, power and money as they fight to stay on top.
Armie Hammer’s great-grandfather was American businessman and oil magnate Armand Hammer.
Casey Hammer concludes, “I’ve let the Hammers control me all my life, it’s time to stop. I refuse to be silenced.”

Ever since the charges first surfaced against Hammer, his glittering Hollywood career has been left in tatters.
The actor has parted ways with various television and film productions including Shotgun Wedding opposite Jennifer Lopez and The Billion Dollar Spy which will now feature Mads Mikkelsen. He was replaced by Miles Teller in the television series The Offer, a drama about the making of The Godfather.
He previously played the Winklevoss twins on The Social Network and starred alongside Timothee Chalamet in the Oscar-acclaimed film Call Me By Your Name.
Hammer married presenter Elizabeth Chambers in 2010 and they have a son and daughter together. The couple announced their divorce in 2020.
Chambers said she is “shocked, heartbroken and devastated” by the charges.
Sky News has contacted representatives for Hammer for comment.
