Rabid | Chicago Reader


Porn queen Marilyn Chambers in an aggressive little horror movie from Canada. Chambers contracts a complicated case of rabies when she wakes up from a skin graft operation—one of the side effects is a strange compulsion to stick people with a curious fanged phallus that she's grown under her armpit. Eventually, she has most of Montreal foaming at the mouth, with corpses being carried away in garbage trucks. Directed by David Cronenberg, it was the first of his obsessionally personal shockers to get a wide release in the U.S. (1976).
