  • Rabid (1976)

    "Rabid".....This 1976 Canadian classic is a big hit!! One of David Cronenbergs best horror movie's and a big fave of mine. The lovely pornstar Marilyn Chambers was hit and miss. She had some great screams and face expressions, but her acting was mediocre for the most part. The same goes for her onscreen boyfriend played by Frank Moore (Hart)....who looks alot like Christopher Walken. His best moment was his last scene. The screenplay was fairly strong, as was the directing. Nice special effects for that time/budget. Add in some blood and gooey gore... as well as some shocking and thrilling scenes..makes Rabid a wonderful horror movie.

    8.5/10

      RABID doesn't get a lot of love elsewhere, but it's one of my favorite Crony flicks.

      That and THE BROOD.

        Well it should get more love. Such a wonderful classic chiller. Like you...I also love The Brood.

          I haven't seen this in so long!
          I'll always remember the creepy picture on the video cover.
          I want to see it again.

            I thought Marilyn Chambers performance was pretty strong considering her previous film experience.

              I checked this one out for the first time in October and really dug it. Simple story, expertly executed. I really need to get the dvd soon

                  I didn't really like this film too much compared to Cronenberg's other work. To me, The Fly, Scanners, The Dead Zone, and Videodrome are all a lot better.

                    Haha yeah. You would think given Chambers resume and the subject matter of Cronenbergs film prior to Rabid, "Shivers", he would of hired her earlier.

                      Not really a fan of "The Brood", but "Rabid" messed with me as a kid. I use to have it on vhs, still a classic!!

                        SHIVERS and THE BROOD were really creepy, so I'd be open to seeing this one.
