Rabid has moments of absolute horror that will send shivers down your spine and make you appreciate your life, because however shitty your day was, it probably wasn’t this bad. The moment you connect with Laura Vandervoort’s character, you’re going to have your heart broken again and again. This being a remake of his work, we feel Cronenberg’s influence, but with a totally different aura.
The word “transformation” is used to describe Vandervoort’s journey, which really comes down to body horror as far as we’re concerned. Since this was written and directed by the Soska sisters, the movie takes a feminist turn sooner than later. Men are either idiots or assholes and deserve whatever punishment comes their way. If this floats your boat, you’ll really want to see Rabid.
Rabid is what zombie flicks would feel like if they had an ounce of creativity. The only thing that brings this movie down is the abundance of nightmares. They’re inconsequential. They’re the most extreme scenes of this film, yet they’re meaningless. Rabid will shock you and disgust you, but it’s also likely to lose traction as it goes. It’s well-written, well-shot, but it’s not for everyone.
