Rabid

In Canadian auteur David Cronenberg’s chilling north-of-the-border horror¬†classic, adult film superstar Marilyn Chambers plays an injured motorcyclist who develops a hunger for hemoglobin, and a strangely phallic stinger, following an experimental plastic surgery. But as her insatiable thirst for blood grows, she begins to transmit a deadly, highly contagious disease and her newly-Rabid victims threaten to violently upend the city.

“An effective film, biting, clever, dark, timely and ultimately Canadian.” – Rhett Miller, Canuxploitation.com

“Here is an extremely violent, sometimes nauseating, picture about a young woman affected with rabies, running around Montreal infecting others.” – Variety
