The Noomi Rapace Horror-Comedy That's Heating Up On Netflix

Netflix continues to prove to audiences that it's still the king of streaming networks. Thanks to impressive deals signed with leading creative minds and the biggest buzz-creating shows, the streaming giant has something for everyone.

However, if you're a fan of foreign-language horror films, then Netflix definitely has something for you. The Filippino hit "Eerie" has captivated new audiences on the platform, while the Indonesian Netflix original "Sabrina" is sure to have you sleeping with the lights on for the next few weeks. There are plenty of offerings from all across the globe to satisfy fans of the genre, but a new option out of Norway is taking the streamer by storm. The film stars Noomi Rapace, best known for starring in the original Swedish language film "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and recent Icelandic horror film "Lamb," alongside Aksel Hennie, whom American audiences will recognize from Ridley Scott's 2015 film "The Martian." If you're in the mood for a chilling foreign language horror film, this new selection might be just what the doctor ordered.

The Trip's leading actors make the film an entertaining watch

Norwegian hit "The Trip" has quite an interesting premise. Married couple Lisa (Noomi Rapace) and Lars (Aksel Hennie) decide to go to a remote cabin under the guise of revitalizing their failing marriage. In a surprising coincidence, both Lisa and Lars have planned to kill their partner on this trip, but the other has no idea. What starts as a dark comedy romp gets even darker quickly when some unexpected visitors appear and prove to be a bigger threat than they are to each other. From famed Scandanavian director Tommy Wirkola, "The Trip" truly is a wild ride.

The pair's chemistry as a fallen-out-of-love husband and wife makes "The Trip" an excellent watch. Trace Thurman of horror film fan site Bloody Disgusting commends their performances, calling them "simply delightful...with each character delivering a hefty amount of passive-aggressive barbs to each other over the smallest things in order to twist the metaphorical knife where it hurts the most." Over at IndieWire, Jude Fry sang the film's praises as well, calling the film "Cheeky and inventive in equal measure, with brilliant performances all around, a whipsmart script and sharp pacing make 'The Trip' one of the most fun watches of the year." Fans are certainly loving the film, too, as it currently boasts a 79% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

If you've ever been so mad at your spouse you thought you were going insane (or if you simply love a good dark comedy horror), you can't go wrong with "The Trip," now streaming on Netflix.
