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.

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.

It's lesser Cronenberg, but with a better lead actress.

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.

[The Soskas] have a wickedly funny sense of humor, and a few winningly nasty ideas.

December 12, 2019
[A]n uneven but often energizing remake of David Cronenberg's 1977 cult classic.
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.

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.

Rabid is a reboot done right; it honours the original, but never bows down in front of it, telling its own story on its own terms.
October 7, 2019
Whilst retaining most of the same structure as Cronenberg's original, Rabid approaches its subject from a slightly different angle
September 3, 2019
This is a glimpse into the rancid heart of cinema, and it's a joy.
August 30, 2019
This neon-lit reimagining certainly bears the original superficial structure of the original as well as many of its narrative details... but the film, like Rose herself, harbours something different underneath that will only gradually emerge
August 28, 2019
This is an impressive film, building on the original but speaking for itself.

Laura Vandervoort gives the performance of her life and the Soska's are back on form with this visceral dark fairytale. Seductive, sensual, and gory as Hell, Rabid is a rare example of a remake worthy of your time.

It would be passable if the third act didn't completely go off the rails.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
February 4, 2020
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 3, 2020
A crummy, distressingly slapdash remake, one that's especially disappointing coming from the Soskas.

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.
