A remake of David Cronenberg’s 1977 horror classic, Rabid, is on the way from Jen and Sylvia Soska, better known as the Soska Sisters around the horror community. The first trailer for the effort recently made its debut and shows off a bloody and disturbing tale of infection. Get your first look at the upcoming remake by giving the new trailer a watch above!
The film will hold its world premiere at the London FrightFest, which runs from August 22nd to 26th at the Cineworld Leicester Square and The Prince Charles Cinema. Other upcoming horror films screening at the event include André Øvredal and Guillermo del Toro's Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, along with the Sam Raimi-produced Crawl from director Alexandre Aja.
Rabid is about an ambitious young woman whose dreams are derailed when a terrible accident leaves her scarred beyond recognition. This leads her to seek out a radical untested steam cell treatment, which has miraculous results but comes at a terrible price. Soon, she begins feeding on human blood, leaving nothing but infected victims in her wake.
There's no word yet on when Rabid might see a theatrical run or on which date horror fans can grab this film up on home video, but we'll be sure to keep you posted with all the latest news and updates right here on Dead Entertainment. Stay tuned!
