The quiet Rose works in women's fashion clothing, hoping to be a designer. A traffic accident damages her face. She gets experimental stem cell treatment, leaving her stronger and prettier than ever - but there's a side effect.
A brilliant painter facing the worst creative block of her life turns to anything she can to complete her masterpiece, spiraling into a hallucinatory hellscape of drugs, sex and murder in the sleazy underbelly of Los Angeles.
Jenn has washed ashore a small tropical island and it doesn't take her long to realize she's completely alone. She must spend her days not only surviving the elements, but must also fend off the malevolent force that comes out each night.

On Halloween, a group of friends encounter an "extreme" haunted house that promises to feed on their darkest fears. The night turns deadly as they come to the horrifying realization that some nightmares are real.

What happens when you realize that to achieve your dreams you have to live a nightmare? Rose is a quiet, demure, unassuming woman in her looks and actions. Her dream is to become a famous designer in the fashion world, but a terrible accident leaves Rose scarred beyond recognition. She seeks out a radical untested stem cell treatment. The treatment is nothing short of a miracle and wallflower Rose turns into the belle of the ball. It all seems to good to be true. She is now everything she wanted to be. But everything in life comes at a price and this new found perfect life is no exception.
A subpar remake of a somewhat-okay original! [+38%]
I've not been a fan of The Soska Sisters' work thus far, and Rabid barely offers anything to change that opinion. Apart from Laura Vandervoort's, the performances were on par with bad t.v shows of the 90s and early 2000s. In fact, everything about Rabid feels appropriate for the television format. It's difficult to believe that the inspiration here is one of Cronenberg's early (and ludicrous) works. The last act fails to make any sense. If the Soskas believed this to be "high art", then someone better let them know that they're not The Wachowskis. And oh, CM Punk and his wife appear in inconsequential cameos.
