Rabid

Rabid

Directed by David Cronenberg

In David Cronenberg’s must-see cult favorite, a woman named Rose (porn star Marilyn Chambers) develops a thirst for blood after receiving experimental surgery. When Rose wakes up, she finds a stinger under her armpit which she uses to feed off victims, who later turn rabid and attack others. RABID is body horror as only Cronenberg can do, with sex and death inextricably linked thanks to Rose’s phallic parasite. Chambers gamely made the leap to “respectable” films, and die-hard disco fans may recognize her bizarro single “Benihana” playing over one particularly nasty attack. Contains strong language, violence and gore.

In David Cronenberg’s early cult favorite, a woman develops a thirst for blood after experimental plastic surgery.

Cast: Marilyn Chambers, Frank Moore, Joe Silver

A solid body horror flick. Plot is a little messy, slow in some places, but good to watch with a beer and a bowl.

I need every hater in here to explain to me how you can not give a movie with a "shooting Santa" scene a five skull rating.

Ultimately Rabid boils down to zombified sluts and shock moments but it's an irresistible combination that Cronenberg handles well.
