A new "Rabid"-like horror movie is in the works, called "Urge." Sounds a bit like a cross between "The Signal," "Rabid" and maybe "Shivers."
As reported in today's Variety:
Barbarian Film Fund will finance the psychological thriller "Urge," written by Guy Busick.
Story takes place in a quaint rural town, where the population is suddenly reduced to its most base violent and sexual urges after being exposed to a failed secret government experiment. A small group of locals are left unexposed and struggle to survive and uncover the truth behind the incident.
No director has been found yet for the project. Click here for more.
