It would be passable if the third act didn't completely go off the rails.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

Rabid with a female lens isn't camp, it isn't satire. The Soska Sisters's take on Cronenberg's cannibalistic horror film is full of empty calories.

Vandervoort does her best to give Rose more depth than the script offers, but it's an uphill battle.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
January 31, 2020
A suitable entry into the science-fiction/horror genre that occasionally promises something more. And while the film's science-fiction/horror elements don't disappoint, the promise of something more doesn't quite pull through.

Rabid, a remake of the 1977 original, provides a new twist ending, a greater female sensibility, and the best special effects the 21st century can provide.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
January 30, 2020
Outlandish fun, with lashings of gore and extravagantly disgusting practical effects compensating for the ripe dialogue and Mackenzie Gray's camped-out performance.
January 3, 2020
A crummy, distressingly slapdash remake, one that's especially disappointing coming from the Soskas.

It's lesser Cronenberg, but with a better lead actress.
Full Review | Original Score: B
December 17, 2019
Rabid manages to beautifully pay homage to Cronenberg and jaw-droppingly brilliant makeup and practical effects allow The Soska Sisters to also put their own unique body horror thumbprint on the film.

It's possible this remake could grow on me when I take the time to watch it again. Here's hoping that ends up being the case.

December 14, 2019
The Soska sisters' en vogue approach opens the door for reinvention, but fumbles what Cronenberg was able to accomplish when intensifying society's already contagious disease.

December 13, 2019
The original Rabid may not be a classic by any stretch of the imagination but, it was at least memorable on some basic level -- this version, on the other hand, is neither.
December 13, 2019
Although competently made from a technical perspective, the movie is unexpectedly bland on a story level.

December 13, 2019
[The Soskas] have a wickedly funny sense of humor, and a few winningly nasty ideas.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
December 12, 2019
Horror remakes don't have to be inferior rehashes... But this Rabid nibbles where it should clamp down hard.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
December 12, 2019
[A]n uneven but often energizing remake of David Cronenberg's 1977 cult classic.
December 11, 2019
Rabid is a regrettable bore, drawn out to the point that it forces unnecessary attention on the film's many shortcomings.
December 11, 2019
This Rabid strives to emulate the striking body horror of the original but mainly comes across like a half-baked imitation.
December 11, 2019
"Rabid" delivers the violent goods with enthusiasm, with the Soskas once again commanding an engaging, grotesque genre offering, continuing their impressive run of B-movie delights.
Full Review | Original Score: B
December 10, 2019
The Soska sisters don't try to be Cronenberg, but they sure pay tribute to his films throughout their own. Their Rabid... expresses more than anything their deep and abiding love for Cronenberg's work.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
