With their new film acclaimed horror directors Jen and Sylvia Soska (American Mary) provide a truly dazzling and original reinterpretation of the David Cronenberg body horror classic: Rabid.

In the film, an aspiring model (Laura Vandervoort - Jigsaw) undergoes a radical untested stem-cell treatment after being disfigured in an accident. Although the procedure transforms her into a ravishing beauty, the lasting side effects leave her with an uncontrollable taste for blood, resulting in several torrid encounters and a trail of infected victims.

As the illness mutates and the contagion spreads out of control, the infected rampage through the city in a violent and gruesome killing spree.

We are delighted that Cine-Excess 13 Guests of Honour Jen and Sylvia Soska will be attending the screening of Rabid and conducting an onstage Q&A following the event.

Also includes Independent Visions of Excess Awards and Q&A with the Soskas and Norman J Warren (Prey, Terror, Inseminoid). Film starts at 8pm.
