Rabid ★★★½

Daily Horror Hunt #23 – May 2020 Day 9. Watch a horror movie directed by a woman.

Maybe it didn't go quite as crazy as it seemed to be building up to, but there were a few scenes that had me squirming a bit. I didn't love this as much as I was expecting, but it's good that the Soskas didn't just do a rehash of the original and put their own spin on things. It definitely feels like a Soska movie. It just felt a little hollow at times and perhaps a teeny bit overlong.It didn't punch me in the gut in the way I was hoping for. I seem a little negative towards this but I'm not really. I enjoyed the movie. I liked the gore and the squeamishness I felt a couple of times, and there were a couple of great performances. I think I just set my expectations too high.
