I didn't watch the original Rabid, so I cannot compare it to Cronenberg's version. I did like this Soska sisters movie though. It's entertaining, although the plot being a tiny bit too predictable. Then again, what would you expect from a body horror movie that kind of mixes vampirism with a zombie-esque outbreak. Props to the Makeup department, I especially liked the prostethics design in this one.

Why the need to over explain the story and over build the characters! Watch the original and this back to back and you will see just how films today are destroying the art.:zany_face: :nauseated_face:
Apparently the idea to remake the pleasantly kitsch 1977 Cronenberg original was so bad it was contagious, because it infected the acting, directing and script of this resuscitation of direct-to-DVD.
Well that was different...In a good way. I did enjoy it; it was weird, gory horror. The special effects team did well with the creatures and rabid people. The props in the background were creepy too.
It had a strange story, there was no conclusions on what was going on. Just weird horrible things happening.
Nevertheless, it was a decent enough horror film. It did it’s job in making us cringe in horror, so therefore it was successful in that manner.
It’s worth watching, just don’t expect to really know what’s going on. Perhaps deliberate for a sequel.
It was almost like the beginning of something without the end, hence my thoughts of a sequel.
It’s not vampires, nor is it zombies; it like some weird combination with these and something new.
The cast were great, they played their parts well.
It didn’t follow the norm for films with a hero or happy ending, which is refreshing.
Nearly 2hrs of kind of enjoyable weirdness lol.
From the good to the excruciatingly bad, this is a real mixed bag of a movie.
Well that was different. I think overall the movie did pretty well. I was just a bit disappointed in the weird bumpiness of the quality and consistency. The pace is good and visuals are very well done. Overall it just didn't fully click.
