Jen and Sylvia Soska’s update of David Cronenberg’s classic RABID is headed for its world premiere at London’s FrightFest, and a new poster has been issued. See it along with some pics and the trailer after the jump.
Starring Laura Vandervoort, Benjamin Hollingsworth and Phil “C.M. Punk” Brooks, RABID has its debut screenings at FrightFest August 26 at 5:45 p.m. in the Arrow Video Screen and 6:15 p.m. in the Horror Channel Screen at the Cineworld Leicester Square. The synopsis: “After aspiring fashion designer Rose [Vandervoort] suffers a disfiguring traffic accident, she undergoes a radical and untested stem-cell treatment. The experimental transformation is a miraculous success, transforming her into a ravishing beauty. But she soon develops an uncontrollable sexual appetite, resulting in several torrid encounters, which sees her lovers become rabid carriers of death and disease. As the illness mutates and the contagion spreads out of control, all hell breaks loose as the infected rampage through the city on a violent and gruesome killing spree.”
