The Soska’s Sisters’ Rabid Opens In Theaters During Christmas Time

Rabid was the film that put David Cronenberg on the map for many horror films. His tale of what can go wrong when a revolutionary surgery is applied without real testing made people run down the aisles in fear. This was especially true for viewers who thought they were getting a Marilyn Chambers’ adult feature. Now the film is being remade over four decades later with the Soska Sisters updating the tale of a medical “what can go wrong?” The film will be playing Theaters, Digital and On Demand on December 13 so it’ll be the perfect film to sit down with the whole family and take a breather from the never ending Christmas specials. Here’s the press release from Shout! Factory & Shout! Studios:

In the gripping horror film Rabid, aspiring fashion designer Rose Miller has her dreams turned into a nightmarish reality when a freak accident leaves her horribly disfigured. After receiving a miracle procedure involving an experimental skin graft from the mysterious Burroughs Clinic, Rose is transformed into the beauty of her dreams. But nothing comes without a cost and Rose begins to feel terrifying side effects that tear at her last threads of sanity. What price will Rose have to pay to have everything she ever wanted?
