Something more than fear to fear
Abducted by members of a mysterious cult, Noomi Rapace’s arachnophobic single mom finds herself subjected to a series of strange, fear-inducing tests in a labyrinthine medical facility.
She, understandably, is soon gibbering in terror but scares are in shorter supply for the viewer in the underwhelming horror thriller Rupture.
Rapace’s heroine spends far too long strapped to a trolley while the film drip feeds hints of the experimenters’ sinister goals. And although the pace picks up in the final third, the story’s ultimate payoff is disappointing.
Certificate 15. Runtime 99 mins. Director Steven Shainberg
