The Twisted Twins Find Their Victim For Their Remake Of ‘Rabid’

Fan favorite directors Jen and Sylvia Soska aka The Twisted Twins have been hard at work bringing their vision of the David Cronenberg classic Rabid to life and they took a giant step in a great direction with the announcement of the casting of Laura Vandervoot in the lead role of Rose – famously portrayed by Marilyn Chambers in the original.  Vandervoot is no stranger to the genre having been in the latest SAW film last year but I remember her more from BITTEN and her turn in the remake of V.

In the Soska’s remake:

“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.”

All the financial and distribution on this one seems locked – just need to get the cameras rolling and make this happen!

This one is pretty high on my “can’t wait to see what they do with this” list.
