The Fantasia Film Festival has posted a first look at “Rupture” to promote the film’s world premiere. While the dlip doesn’t give away too much, it looks odd and scary enough to be either really good or really campy. Besides a frightened Rapace, we see a scary Lesley Manville and an even scarier Peter Stormare. Here comes the festival’s additional Information: Award-winning, iconoclastic writer/director Steven Shainberg became an international indie film sensation with 2002’s extraordinary kink masterpiece “Secretary”, his second feature following 1998’s powerful Jim Thompson adaptation “Hit Me”. Four years after, he returned with the poetic and beautiful “Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus”. Now, ten years later, Stephen Shainberg is back. Brace yourself, because sinister things have been brewing. The gifted filmmaker’s first exploration into horror/science-fiction storytelling, “Rupture” is a dark and discomforting dive into a unique abyss that has the remarkable Noomi Rapace matching wits against Peter Stormare, Michael Chiklis, Lesley Manville and Kerry Bishé in a transfigured underworld of nightmares. Scripted by Shainberg and Brian Nelson (“Hard Candy”) and featuring stunning, colour-splashed cinematography by Karim Hussain (“Antiviral”). “Rupture” premieres at Fantasia on July 15, 2016.
