A new poster and a series of images have debuted for The Soska Sisters’ remake of David Cronenberg’s classic film Rabid.
The Soska Sisters – Jen and Sylvia Soska – aka The Twisted Twins, will bring the film to Arrow Video FrightFest in August for its World Premiere. Check out the trailer below:
After aspiring fashion designer Rose (Laura Vandervoort) suffers a disfiguring traffic accident she undergoes a radical and untested stem-cell treatment. The experimental transformation is a miraculous success, transforming her into a ravishing beauty. But she soon develops an uncontrollable sexual appetite, resulting in several torrid encounters, which sees her lovers become rabid carriers of death and disease. As the illness mutates and the contagion spreads out of control, all hell breaks loose as the infected rampage through the city on a violent and gruesome killing spree.
Rabid stars Laura Vandervoort (Jigsaw, Bitten), Benjamin Hollingsworth (Cold Pursuit) and Phil ‘C.M. Punk’ Brooks (Girl on the Third Floor). It’s based on David Cronenberh’s film of the same name and was written and directed by Jen and Sylvia Soska.
