Soska Sisters Share Empowering First ‘Rabid’ Footage

Now in post-production is the remake of David Cronenberg’s 1977 film Rabid, which was directed by sisters Jen and Sylvia Soska.

Laura Vandervoort (Jigsaw) stars as Rose, a demure seamstress who goes through a radical transformation after electing for plastic surgery following a disfiguring accident. “My character Rose goes through hell and back,” she previously explained, although perfectly segueing into the following video.

In this special news item on female directors, the Soska sisters reveal the first footage from their Rabid remake and explain the background behind it. Told from a female perspective, Vandervoort’s character is being harassed by a man and gets what’s coming to him. One of the gifts of getting more female directors behind the camera is that we’ll be treated to new interpretations of material through the “female gaze”. Rabid appears to be such a film and I’m pretty stoked to see it.
