The Soska Sisters – Jen and Sylvia – are favourites are Arrow Video FrightFest and perhaps best-known for their classic horror film American Mary starring Katharine Isabelle.

The sisters returned to the festival this year with their latest film Rabid, a remake of the 1977 David Cronenberg film of the same name. Putting their own twist on the film, The Soska Sisters received a huge reaction from the FrightFest audience when Rabid premiered on Monday.

Ahead of the premiere, I sat down with Jen and Sylvia to talk about the film, discuss the challenges of remaking Cronenberg, and find out about the importance of fleshing out the main character Rose (played brilliantly by Laura Vandervoort).

Read our full review of Rabid.

Rabid is released on Blu-ray and DVD on 7th October via 101 films and is available for pre-order now. For more information on Arrow Video FrightFest head over to
