Rabid Love is set in the early 1980’s; it pays homage to the wildly successful horror films of that era such as ‘An American Werewolf in London’, ‘The Howling’, ‘Grizzly’, ‘Friday the 13th’, ‘Evil Dead’, and countless others. It builds on the tried and true plot of young people in the woods and includes all the critical elements that fans of the genre expect.
When Heather Ross and her lifelong friends take one final trip out to a cabin in the woods before they go their separate ways after graduating from college, the weekend takes an unexpected turn when people start disappearing. Is one of their own responsible? How about the killer bear that’s rumored to be in the woods? Maybe one of the seemingly unstable hunters that have been drawn to the area and are out to get the bear? Join Heather and the gang as they find out where their loyalties truly lie and discover the secrets of the forest that might become a grave for all of them!
We are shooting the film in a small town in Western Kansas this summer, where Paul Porter’s family originates from and the residents have graciously given us free reign to shoot all over the town and the wilderness that surrounds it during our time there.
