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

The type of horror movie premise you explain aloud to your coworkers. Classic.

Great low budget horror flick. I watched this one as a kid when I stumbled across it in a mom and pop video rental store back when they existed. Still awesome to this day!

Joe Bob introduced me to this one, and since Cronenberg is one of my all time favorites, I was excited. It is one of his lesser films, but there’s a lot to enjoy here.
