It's capable of transforming loved ones into bloodthirsty killers, and after initially being featured in David Cronenberg's Rabid, the hunger-inducing infection will find new life in Jen and Sylvia Soska's remake of the 1977 film. Before Shout!

After receiving a miracle procedure involving an experimental skin graft from the mysterious Burroughs Clinic, Rose is transformed into the beauty of her dreams. But nothing comes without a cost and Rose begins to feel terrifying side effects that tear at her last threads of sanity. What price will Rose have to pay to have everything she ever wanted? It may just cost her her humanity. Opening in select theaters, digital and On Demand everywhere December 13, 2019 from Shout!
