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.
Synopsis: A young woman develops a taste for human blood after undergoing experimental plastic surgery, and her victims turn into rabid, blood-thirsty zombies who proceed to infect others, which turns into a city-wide epidemic.
