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.

Excellent outbreak film filled with Cronenberg weirdness. I had never seen this until the Joe Bob Briggs marathon.
One of my all-time favourites. This may be the greatest Canadian horror movie ever.
Really great. Cronenberg's work always blows me away.
Funny I saw this movie when I was about 9 gave me nightmares seeing it again brought back memories of the old gore horror movies.
no redeeming qualities
