This bold remake of David Cronenberg’s 1977 body-horror cult classic comes courtesy of Canadian filmmakers Jen and Sylvia Soska (American Mary).
The story has been revised as a fashion house horror/mad scientist tale, but the basic premise remains the same. Following a nasty motorcycle accident, dress designer Rose (Laura Vandervoort) undergoes an experimental skin graft process that leaves her with a vampiric organ in her armpit and a taste for blood. Her victims are infected with a mutant strain of rabies, which quickly spreads throughout Toronto. The Soskas pay cheeky homage to other Cronenberg films, while investing the character of Rose with a lot more depth. And the finale is truly bonkers.
