If you like creepy bad B-horror flicks, you'll probably get a kick out of it.

'RUPTURE': Three and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

A psychological horror flick directed by Steven Shainberg (who also helmed the 2002 cult classic 'SECRETARY') and written by Shainberg and Brian Nelson (who also wrote the 2005 cult classic 'HARD CANDY'). It stars Noomi Rapace as a single mother that's abducted by a mysterious organization, and then subjected to severe fear-inducing torture as part of some secret experiment. The film also costars Michael Chiklis, Peter Stormare and Kerry Bishe. It hasn't been well received by most viewers, or critics that have seen it, but I enjoyed it.

Renee (Rapace) is a single mother struggling to deal with an abusive ex, who's also her son's father. After dropping the boy off at his dad's for the weekend, Renee is abducted (on the road after blowing a tire) by a secret organization. She's then taken to an unknown location, where she's injected with chemicals and subjected to torturous fear-inducing experiments. Renee encounters multiple other people being held there, who are also being subjected to the same horrendous experiments. When she's left alone, Renee breaks free of her bondage, and then begins sneaking around the location in an attempt to figure out what's really going on.

The movie definitely has a cheesy B-horror movie feel to it, but I like that feel in films (if it's done well). This movie is really creepy, and effectively nightmarish to a certain extent. I always have to give those things credit. Rapace gives it her all in the lead (like always), and the supporting actors seem to be having a lot of fun with their creepy roles. It's definitely not an especially well made (or well written) movie, but it is fun and entertaining (in my opinion at least). If you like creepy bad B-horror flicks, I think you'll probably get a kick out of it (like I did).
