Images shared from Jen and Sylvia Soska’s remake of David Cronenberg’s Rabid are extremely gruesome. Still, some truly twisted prosthetics have been featured here on Dread Central, not to mention in the pages of Rue Morgue and Fangoria magazine. Still, images of Laura Vandervoort’s busted-up face proved too extreme for Twitter.
Sylvia Soska took to Facebook this morning to announce they “Twisted Twins” have been temporarily suspended.
“Bad girls. We’ll be back. But man, those @mastersfx1 prosthetics in #Rabid must be medically accurate to get us suspended for advertising our World Premiere with a FrightFest banner [Featured Image]. I like how that makeup could be on the cover of @ruemorguemag & @fangoria, but shut down on Twitter. Wild world we are living in.
“Wish y’all didn’t do it right as we dropped our first trailer and are advertising the premiere, but we’re not a huge studio movie – this kind of weird stuff happens. If you could be #Rabid on Twitter in our absence, we would appreciate it.”
Check out the synopsis and trailer for the Soska’s Rabid below.
What happens when you realize that to achieve your dreams you have to live a nightmare? Rose 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.
