The upcoming Norwegian horror film
Ah, Noomi Rapace. You’re everywhere. And you’ll officially be the next “hot import” when Warner Bros. releases the second Sherlock Holmes film next year. Before that happens, though, some will see you in the Norwegian horror film Babycall.
Thanks to 24fps, we have a synopsis for this February 2011 overseas release: Anna and her eight year old son Anders are under the witness protection program following a difficult relationship with Anders’ father. They move into a large apartment complex. Anna becomes overprotective of her son and even buys a babycall to keep track of him. Soon, strange noises from other apartments appear on the monitor, and Anna overhears what might be the murder of a child. Meanwhile, Andersâ mysterious new friend starts visiting at odd hours, claiming that he has keys for all the doors in the building… Does this new friend know anything about the murder? And why is Anders’ drawing stained with blood? Is Anna’s son still in danger?
Rapace is the star of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo trilogy and is said to be a contender for Ridley Scott’s Alien prequels.
