A remake of David Cronenberg's 1977 thriller, The Soska Sisters' Rabid will receive its world premiere in August as part of FrightFest.

The film stars Laura Vandervoort as a woman who develops a...well, rabid sexual appetite following experimental surgery, leading her to embark on a violent rampage. Benjamin Hollingsworth and Phil ‘C.M. Punk’ Brooks also star.

FrightFest presents the World Premiere of Rabid on 26 August at 5.45pm in the Arrow Video Screen and 6.15pm in the Horror Channel Screen at the Cineworld Leicester Square.

The Soska Sisters will also introduce a screening of a new-to-the-UK 2K restoration of David Cronenberg’s original Rabid (1977) at FrightFest on Sunday 25 August.


The official synopsis reads:

After aspiring fashion designer Rose (Laura Vandervoort) suffers a disfiguring traffic accident she undergoes a radical and untested stem-cell treatment. The experimental transformation is a miraculous success, transforming her into a ravishing beauty. But she soon develops an uncontrollable sexual appetite, resulting in several torrid encounters, which sees her lovers become rabid carriers of death and disease. As the illness mutates and the contagion spreads out of control, all hell breaks loose as the infected rampage through the city on a violent and gruesome killing spree.
