Watch the lengths a mother will go to protect her son as Lionsgate debuts The Monitor on DVD, Digital Download and On Demand this summer. Winner for best actress for her role in The Monitor at the Rome Film Festival in 2011, this psychological thriller stars Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Kristoffer Joner (King of Devil's Island) and Henrik Rafaelsen (Happy Happy). Eerie and suspenseful, The Monitor DVD includes deleted scenes and will be available on July 24th for the suggested retail price of $26.98.

After escaping an abusive husband, Anna (Rapace) and her 8-year-old son move far away to a secret location. Terrified that her ex-husband will find them, she buys a baby monitor to keep in her son's room at all times - but she soon discovers strange noises echoing through the monitor from elsewhere in the building. As she witnesses the sounds of what she believes is another child being murdered, she fears the worst - that it's her own son. Reliving the nightmare she recently escaped, Anna will need to figure out what's real and what isn't before she loses her sanity and her child.
