The Terror Tuesday Forecast: Rabid

Posted by Brian Salisbury - April 25th 2011 @ 9:00 am

Aloha, beasts of madness! Monday has again arrived and it is once again time to take a quick peek at what is playing at Terror Tuesday this week. I’ve seen David Cronenberg’s Rabid and, being a die hard fan of the man, I quite like it. While part of me is positively beside myself with excitement to see it in 35mm, there resides in me a trepidation going into this week’s screening. Cronenberg is one of the masters, of that there is little debate, but his films do not constitute the traditional Terror Tuesday fare. Those who attend the evening’s festivities in the hopes of witnessing wretched cinematic disasters are completely bewildered by legitimate quality. When Terror Tuesday featured The Brood, the audience grew restless and chatty due to the film’s deliberate pacing. This is not specific to Cronenberg as all manner of great films have received similarly cold, awkward  receptions. I’ll remain hopeful for this week’s screening, but history is against us.

Peep the trailer below…
