The resident doctor attempts to find a cure before the infected, nymphomaniac inhabitants spread their legs – and the parasites.

PROJECT DETAILS
  • Filming is aimed to begin sometime in February 2014.
  • Writer Ian Driscoll (Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter, Smash Cut) was quoted saying the following about the original: "It’s full of challenging, creepy, original ideas. It’s smart, surprising and unpredictable. If we can do the same thing, this can be another classic for a new generation."
  • Director Rie Rasmussen was quoted saying: "I’m Scandinavian and am very comfortable with sexual expression as a part of a healthy, modern-day reality, and I’ve always loved the underlying social messages in a well-made horror film. The opportunity to reinterpret this film from today’s point of view, adding my own female intuition and life experience was a temptation I couldn’t resist."
  • It's said that this remake will be "updated for today’s social and sexual realities. In a post-HIV world, where people interact through screens rather than skin, the parasite breaks down those digital barriers. This is a world that is both more liberated than that of 1975, and more fearful and uptight."
  • This is a remake of the 1975 David Cronenberg film with the same name.
