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.

A fascinating take on both the idea of vampires and the idea of zombies.
An entertaining, gritty take on the zombie concept. An early glimpse into Cronenberg’s style of horror.
It could have been better
A pretty decent movie considering its budget. Essentially a vampire movie nestled inside of a zombie movie. Not Cronenberg's best, in my opinion, but it's one worth seeing at least once.
Classic! If you are into the classic horrors this is one of the best! Thank You Shudder !
