5.0 out of 5 stars bleak and oddly poignant.
Cronenberg's early work has not been served well on DVD. Although in widescreen and featuring an interview and introduction, the picture quality of Rabid is on the grainy side. The film itself is great.
Rabid is a sort science fiction/horror reworking of the psychosexual themes associated with vampirism crossed with the story of Typhoid Mary. After a motorcycle...

3.0 out of 5 stars rabid
the david cronenberg classic Rabid, is essentially an outbreak movie, pretty much a zombie movie at its base with a lady infecting people and turning them into rabid flesh hungry brain dead zombies!
starring the porn legend marilyn chambers in one of her attempts to break out of the smut and into the mainstream, im not sure if picking what at the time was a fiercely...

5.0 out of 5 stars Bravo Bravo!!!!, 19 Sep 2003
This review is from: Rabid [1977] [DVD] (DVD)
Thank god for region 2!!! They had it here in the states
for oh two weeks and since it didnt sell a milion copys
they threw it out of print. Anyways Rabid in my opion
is David's best movie yes its low buget and yes its lead
actress was a porn star But thats the beauty of it wasnt
a fx driven picture it was driven by Davids talent the dismal landscapes and far away characters are what make this movie chilling and the no emotion envermint gives you nothing but
dispare as for the ending yes chambers does kill herself
because she finnaly figured out what she was doing to people
but oops to late there are thousands of victims in the end
and it leaves the viewer with the end of the world type feeling
thats what David can do best make a movie with no emotion and still make it watchable and enjoyable

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun in the 70s with rabies, 31 Dec 2002
This review is from: Rabid [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Rabies, armpit vampires, marilyn chambers, what more can you want in a 70s horror movie from Canada. Cronenberg is great with weird twisted ideas (see Dead Ringers for the best) and porn stars. The film has a porno soundtrack and is basically night of the living dead remade. Terrible acting and lots of continuity errors (unless poor Joe Silver really drives all day and night to get to the Keloid Clinic). Still lots of fun if you like Cronenberg and I do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bravo Bravo!!!, 19 Sep 2003
This review is from: Rabid [1977] [DVD] (DVD)
My hats off to who ever had the guts to keep
this film in print.Let me first say as this and
shivers are my fav works from david they both show
his work and talent the most out of all his films
the surreal back drops and dismal camera work are chilling
just buy themselfs and the lack of emotion in these are just
as errie.
Now on to rabid this couple gets into a wreck luckly
for them theres a plastic surgery clinic near by the lame
boyfriend seems unhurt but his girl Chambers is in bad
condition well anyway the surgen there uses exparmental
surgery to save her looks but not now how much more she would
get out of this anyway she starts awaking the night after
when the good doctor comes to see her he is attacked anyway
fast forward theres a bunch of murders and the movie ends with
a whole city infected If you liked The Crazies are 28 days later
you will love this little gem
