We’ve been following the production of Jen and Sylvia Soska’s remake of David Cronenberg’s Rabid since the project was first announced. It’s been a long process (I guess things move a bit slower in Canada, eh) but the “Twisted Twins” took to Twitter last night, confirming that their rendition of Rabid has finally been completed.
Not only that, the film has been test-screened and the response was phenomenal!
We still don’t have a trailer, but you can check out the synopsis below. We’ll keep you posted on all Rabid-related news as details emerge. Stay tuned!
What happens when you realize that to achieve your dreams you have to live a nightmare? Rose (Laura Vandervoot) is a quiet, demure, unassuming woman in her looks and actions. Her dream is to become a famous designer in the fashion world, but a terrible accident leaves Rose scarred beyond recognition. She seeks out a radical untested stem cell treatment. The treatment is nothing short of a miracle and wallflower Rose turns into the belle of the ball. It all seems to good to be true. She is now everything she wanted to be. But everything in life comes at a price and this new-found perfect life is no exception.
In addition to Vandervoort, Rabid stars Stephen Huszar, Greg Bryk, and Stephen McHattie.
