Shout! Factory Acquires Sylvia Soska’s Remake of Cronenberg’s ‘Rabid’ for U.S. Release



Rabid Still

David Cronenberg’s 1977 body horror classic Rabid is receiving a modern remake from the twisted sisters directing duo Jen and Sylvia Soska, which is to start shooting this April. Today it was announced that the film has secured a U.S. distribution deal via Shout! Factory.

Rose, 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.

Jordan Fields, vp acquisitions at Shout! Studios, had the following to say about the remake of Cronenberg’s classic horror flick:

Remaking one of the seminal films of David Cronenberg’s early work is audacious, exciting and not a little nerve-wracking. But there are no better hands in which to place this challenge than the four belonging to the enormously talented Soska sisters.

How do you guys feel about the Sylvia Soska’s remake of Cronenberg’s Rabid? It will be very interesting to see who they cast to play Rose. Stay tuned to Dark Universe for the latest breaking news updates.
