January 3, 2020
A crummy, distressingly slapdash remake, one that's especially disappointing coming from the Soskas.

Rabid is a regrettable bore, drawn out to the point that it forces unnecessary attention on the film's many shortcomings.
October 29, 2019
Rabid is a shabby horror-less horror with little impact and effect.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
September 25, 2019
This isn't the worst film you'll watch all year, simply because it's not really that memorable in the first place.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10

Horror remakes don't have to be inferior rehashes... But this Rabid nibbles where it should clamp down hard.

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.

August 27, 2019
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.

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.

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.

It would be passable if the third act didn't completely go off the rails.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
December 13, 2019
Although competently made from a technical perspective, the movie is unexpectedly bland on a story level.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
December 11, 2019
This Rabid strives to emulate the striking body horror of the original but mainly comes across like a half-baked imitation.

Vandervoort does her best to give Rose more depth than the script offers, but it's an uphill battle.

December 9, 2019
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.
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.

September 3, 2019
This is a glimpse into the rancid heart of cinema, and it's a joy.
October 7, 2019
Whilst retaining most of the same structure as Cronenberg's original, Rabid approaches its subject from a slightly different angle
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
August 26, 2019
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
