Ahead of its world premiere at this year's FrightFest, we present to you the grotesque first trailer for Jen and Sylvia Soska's remake of David Cronenberg's Rabid.
"The remake will follow Rose (Laura Vandervoort), a young woman who, after an accident leaves her scarred beyond recognition, undergoes a radical untested stem-cell treatment. While turning Rose into the belle of the ball, the experimental transformation comes at a price."
Rabid is written by the Soskas and John Serge, and led by the twin sister horror-movie directors that established a huge following with the 2012 slasher film American Mary. With a modern and relevant spin from the woman’s perspective, and the addition of Vandervoort, the new Rabid is going to be a uniquely chilling, and captivating film.
The film also stars Ben Hollingsworth as "Brad", a fashion photographer with Hanneke Talbot ("Playing Dead") portraying Rose’s best friend Chelsea; and Mackenzie Gray (Legion, "Riverdale") is arrogant fashion designer "Gunter". Rabid will also feature WWE superstars CM Punk as "Billy" and his wife, New York Times best-selling author AJ Mendez as "Kira".
