We are big fans of Noomi Rapace. After her breakout performance in the original The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, she was criminally underused in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, and is set to win us over once more when she stars in Ridley Scott's upcoming Prometheus.

Here, the Swedish actress stars as a mother, taking her young son on the run to avoid his violent father. Holing up in an apartment block, she discovers a baby monitor, which emits horrifying screams from somewhere in the building. It is implied that this may or may not be all in her head, but either way this looks set to be a seriously creepy psychological thriller. We particularly like the idea of the double threats, coming from both the father and the mysterious wailing sound.

Having played the Glasgow Film Festival recently, Babycall gets a thatrical release on May 30th this year.
