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

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.
