The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Prometheus star Noomi Rapace leads the cast of Rupture, a psychological thriller and arachnophobe’s nightmare for which this trailer has just landed.
The film comes from Secretary director Steven Shainberg, who also wrote the script along with Brian Nelson, the man known for penning Hard Candy, 30 Days of Night and Devil. Rapace stars alongside Peter Stormare (Constantine, Clown), Kerry Bishé (Red State, Argo) and Michael Chiklis (The Shield, American Horror Story).
Renee Morgan (Rapace), a single mom who lives with her twelve-year-old son Evan in a quiet suburban home, is terrified of spiders. Unbeknownst to both, their every move is being observed. While running her daily errands her car breaks down and she is violently kidnapped by a group of strangers. About 24 hours later, in an anonymous laboratory, she is tied up and questioned about her medical history, including her great fear of spiders. Soon her captors explain to her that her genetic abnormality can potentially allow her to ‘Rupture’, revealing her own true alien nature.
Rupture has already played a few festivals this year, and its next stop is Spain’s Sitges Film Festival on October 9th.
Check out the trailer below, and don’t ‘overlook’ that somewhat familiar pattern adorning the wallpaper.
