‘RABID’ REMAKE STARTS SHOOTING





I recall having my usual irritation when the news broke over a year ago that David Cronenberg’s Rabid [the one about a woman who has a motorcycle crash and after some radical surgery ends up with an orifice under one of her armpits which hides a phallic stinger that she uses to feed on people’s blood] was being remade, though in general horror fans didn’t seem too bothered, what with the Soska sisters’s American Mary having won many admirers – though aside from that they still seem to be better known for their shorts.

Anyway, it’s happening and ‘Bloody Disgusting’ has informed us that filming on the remake has just begun and that ‘Fangoria’ released the above picture, and also that Code Black‘s Ben Hollingsworth has just joined the cast as Brad, a fashion photographer.

Jen and Sylvia are directing and have written the script with John Serge. The film also stars Laura Vandervoort [no porn star in the lead this time then], Hanneke Talbot, Mackenzie Gray, and former WWE superstars Phil Brooks and his wife A. J. Mendez.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
