Jen and Sylvia Soska (American Mary) bring their updated version of David Cronenberg’s 1977 zombie/infection film, Rabid, which is premiering at FrightFest in August.
Definitely, a lot of Cronenberg influence in the trailer from more than just his original Rabid. The trailer shows a bit too much for my liking, but this could be a fun watch.
Laura Vandervoort (Jigsaw,Smallville) stars as Rose, Ben Hollingsworth also stars 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”.
