Director Steven Shainberg's sci-fi thriller RUPTURE is a project we were following closely in the spring of 2015, reporting on it as it was first being assembled and the first piece of promotional art was released. When the film went into production, however, things went silent. Now, just over a year later, RUPTURE is making its way out into the world, doing the festival rounds.

On July 15th, RUPTURE will be screening at the Fantasia International Film Festival, and to mark this occasion a clip has been released online that gives a two minute preview of the sort of colorful creepiness Shainberg has delivered with this movie.

Shainberg crafted the screenplay with HARD CANDY / 30 DAYS OF NIGHT / DEVIL writer Brian Nelson. As described by Fantasia's Mitch Davis, the plot goes like this:

Single mom Renee Morgan has learned to be strong by necessity. One day, after dropping her son off at school and going about daily chores, she’s suddenly abducted and locked away in a truck that drives off — and continues driving for days. Wherever she’s being taken, it’s very far away. The truck finally arrives at a large, mysterious facility that could be pharmaceutical, could be governmental, could be anything. A mysterious man begins to question her about her medical history. He then starts asking about her fears. Renee realizes just how irrational and frightening a situation she’s in. Others arrive, observing her. Why Renee? What could these people want? The answers to both questions lie far from any scenario she could possibly imagine. 

Noomi Rapace, Michael Chiklis, Peter Stormare, Kerry Bishé, and Ari Millen star.
