News The Soska Sisters’ ‘Rabid’ Remake Will Have a Unique Perspective Published 2 years ago on April 5, 2017 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Horror Channel UK recently caught up with Jen and Sylvia Soska regarding their career in film, the duo went on to drop some new information on the upcoming remake of David Cronenberg’s horror classic Rabid. The original 1977 film starred (Marilyn Chambers) as Rose, a woman who develops a taste for human blood after undergoing experimental plastic surgery, and her victims turn into rabid, blood-thirsty zombies who proceed to infect others. “We are very honored to have been the team chosen to take on the remake of Cronenberg’s ‘Rabid’,” said Sylvia. “Normally, I’m not a huge fan of remakes but that’s if they don’t have anything new to bring to the story. We have a unique perspective just because of who we are to tell the story from Rose’s eyes as well as make a commentary on the increasingly rabid world that we live in. “Also, we’ve been dying to get back into body horror. Ten years into David’s filmmaking career, he remade ‘The Fly’ and it brought him to this new level. This is ten years into our career and this will be our first film that gets a wide theatrical release, so it feels like a good pairing. We just have to make sure we don’t let down our country, our fanbase, and our hero,” she explained, while jokingly adding, “No pressure.” The Soskas are known for directing such flicks as American Mary, Dead Hooker in a Trunk and See No Evil 2.
