Rabid Trailer: The Soska Sisters Remake David Cronenberg

rabid

Making its debut at the London FrightFest later this month, here is the first trailer for the upcoming remake of David Cronenberg’s 1977 film Rabid. The movie is directed by The Soska Sisters (American Mary, See No Evil 2), who were temporarily suspended from Twitter last month after posting some gruesome promotional images from the film (which turned out to be great viral marketing). The original featured porn star Marilyn Chambers in the lead role but it is Laura Vandervoort (Jigsaw) who leads this version, playing a shy seamstress who experiences a radical transformation after undergoing experimental stem cell treatment. Rabid co-stars Stephen Huszar, Greg Bryk, Stephen McHattie, C.M. Punk and A.J. Mendez and it does not yet have an official release date. Check out the trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.
