Arriving next year is the Jen and Sylvia Soska-directed new take on David Cronenberg’s ’70s horror film Rabid, and the film is featured as the cover story for the new issue of Rue Morgue. The magazine chose a particularly nasty image for the cover, highlighting the practical effects work from Masters FX. Looks like we’re in store for a real body-horror nightmare!
Laura Vandervoort (Jigsaw) stars in the film.
Rose is a demure seamstress who goes through a radical transformation after electing for plastic surgery following a disfiguring accident.
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”.
