The premiere of Jen and Sylvia Soska’s upcoming remake of David Cronenberg’s 1977 film, Rabid, is fast approaching and a new trailer has been released to celebrate the movie’s inclusion in FANGORIA x MONSTER FEST 2019, where it will be screened for Australian audiences this October. Give it a watch above and read on for more details on the remake!
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!
