FF2 Media’s new “Watch at Home” columns list the new films written and/or directed by women filmmakers that are newly available each week on DVD, Video On Demand &/or streaming services.

Here are the new films written and/or directed by women filmmakers now available at home as of 12/13/2019 (with links to FF2 Media reviews posted the week of their theatrical release):

  • Rabid – Jen Soska & Sylvia Soska (co-directors and co-writers)

DANIELLE’S TOP PICK OF THE WEEK

This week’s selection by default is Rabid. The Soska Sisters direct the film from a script they co-wrote with John Surge.

In the film, an aspiring fashion designer, Rose Miller (Laura Vandervoort), sees her dreams become a nightmare following a freak accident.  The accident left her face terribly disfigured. When the Burroughs Clinic performs a miracle procedure with an experimental skin grafts, Rose more or less becomes the woman of anybody’s dreams.  Well, that is until the horrifying side effects begin to drive her insane to no end. Will Rose ever be able to have anything she wants again and at what cost?

Shout Studios distributed the film, which stars Laura Vandervoort, Benjamin Hollingsworth, Phil Brooks (C.M. Punk), Ted Atherton, Hanneke Talbot, Mackenzie Gray, Stephen Mchattie, Aj Mendez, Kevin Hanchard, and Greg Bryk.

Some of their previous films include Vendetta and American Mary.

Vendetta stars Dean Cain and WWE Superstar The Big Show. The film is a thriller about a detective who stops at nothing for vengeance. He’ll go as far as getting himself arrested if it means getting revenge against the guy that murdered his wife. There’s a surprise waiting for him once he gets inside the system.

As for American Mary, one medical student turns her back on the school after becoming broke. She then turns to the world of underground surgeries as a way of making money.
