The Soska Sisters are taking on their new project which is a remake of David Cronenberg‘s Rabid (1977) film. In case you are unfamiliar with the Rabid film, Marilyn Chambers stars as Rose, a woman who undergoes experimental plastic surgery with disastrous consequences. She now has a stinger that she uses to suck the blood from her victims. The dead victims return as zombies, and soon there is a city-wide epidemic. Filming is expected to start this Summer 2016 in Canada, and we will keep you updated with new updates as they are released.
The Soska Sisters shared this during their interview:
The work of David Cronenberg is legendary and ‘Rabid’ is much more than just a horror movie," the Soskas said. "The real message of his film is powerful, and even more pivotal as we look at the world around us today. It’s an honor to be involved in this love letter to his original, which we handle with the same respect as Paul Schrader’s ‘Cat People,’ Alexandre Aja’s ‘The Hills Have Eyes’ and John Carpenter’s ‘The Thing.
Directed by David Cronenberg
Official Synopsis: In Camelford, while swinging his van across a narrow road to make a u-turn, a driver stalls the vehicle that does not restart. Hart Read is driving his motorcycle with his girlfriend Rose and he drives off the road to avoid the collision. Hart suffers minor injuries while Rosie is injured and burned by the flames when the motorcycle explodes. The ambulance from the nearby Keloid Clinic for Plastic Surgery brings the couple and Rose, who is in coma, is submitted to an emergency surgery and to an experimental plastic-surgery technique by Dr. Dan Keloid to retrieve her skin in the chest and abdomen. Hart is discharged but Rose stays in coma in the intensive care unit (ICU) to recover. Out of the blue, Rose awakens from her coma one month later and screams. A nurse helps her but is wounded by her and then he cannot remember what has happened. He is sent to a hospital in Montreal while Rose realizes that she needs to feed with blood. However her victims become zombie-like creatures. Rose flees from the clinic to Montreal to meet her friend Mindy Kent spreading her infection in the big city. Meanwhile Hart is seeking for her.
