Because More Noomi Rapace Is Never A Bad Thing

By TK | Trailers | January 11, 2011 | Comments ()


Here's the trailer for the new Norwegian thriller Babycall, directed by Pål Sletaune and starring The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo star Noomi Rapace. It's hard to get the gist of it from the trailer, and I'll give you the synopsis, but you should watch it first. Because it's moderately interesting, and then about two thirds of the way into it, it scared the bejesus out of me.

Via Twitch:

Rapace plays a woman essentially living in hiding with her young baby after getting out of an abusive relationship. Left scarred and timid by the relationship and basically praying not to be noticed by anyone for any reason her life is turned upside down when her baby monitor picks up signals from other apartments in her building, one signal in particular waking her with what seems to be the sound of someone being killed.

Yikes. It's clearly got a kind of Rear Window homage vibe to it, but man, coupled with the domestic violence aspect to it -- the fear of discovery, the need to be left alone -- it's a pretty gripping concept.]

Rapace has roughly a billion projects on her itinerary right now (including Sherlock Holmes 2 and the Alien prequel), but this clever looking little thriller will be a nice appetizer for whatever else is coming. It comes out in Norway in March, though no word on when it'll make its way to the rest of the world.
