Perhaps somewhat appropriately, this isn't a very finessed remake of Cronenberg's film, and though the Soskas are clearly fans...it's yet another effort from the duo that fails to live up to their earlier work.
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.
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.
