Rabid Review

Image for Rabid

Rose (Marilyn Chambers), a young woman who suffers a bad accident receives experimental surgery and develops a taste for blood, infecting the population with every bite.

★★★★★

Early Cronenberg with a signature Cronen-bug — Rabid’s pandemic is started by a vampire penis in Marilyn Chambers’ armpit. The craft’s rough, but this is Cronenberg’s sleaziest, funniest film, jammed with juicy gore, infectious shocks and a splendidly unnecessary Santa massacre.
