The Soska Sisters Are Remaking Cronenberg’s Classic Horror Film Rabid 1

Ahead of the film’s world premiere at FrightFest in August, the trailer for Jen and Sylvia Soska‘s Rabid arrived yesterday.

This is a remake of the 1977 film of the same name by body-horror master David Cronenberg. It stars Laura Vandervoort (Jigsaw) as Rose, a demure seamstress who goes through a “radical transformation” after electing for experimental surgery following a disfiguring accident.

Ben Hollingsworth also stars as “Brad”, a fashion photographer with Hanneke Talbot (Playing Dead) portraying Rose’s best friend Chelsea; and Mackenzie Gray (Legion, Riverdale) is the arrogant fashion designer “Gunter”. Rabid will also feature WWE superstars CM Punk as “Billy” and his wife, New York Times best-selling author AJ Mendez as “Kira”.

The Soska Sisters are twin Canadian directors, producers, and screenwriters. They are known for violent and visceral works, and have made films such as American Mary, See No Evil 2, and Vendetta. They have a penchant for finding prominent roles for women in their works and, rather appropriately, are also passionate about raising awareness for blood donation causes.

We don’t have a release date for Rabid yet, but it’s reasonable to expect it for some time later this year. We’ll keep you posted on any new developments.
