RABID: COLLECTOR’S EDITION

RABID: COLLECTOR'S EDITION 1

RABID REVIEWED

“Rabid” follows Marilyn Chambers in her first mainstream role. After dealing with porn, I guess Cronenberg body horror was the next logical step. That’s why she plays a motorcycle crash victim who undergoes a special procedure. This procedure leaves Chambers with a penis in her armpit that stabs people and drains their blood. The end result is that armpit penis turns these people into mindless zombies. Before long, random Canadian town is full of zombies.

What would pass as a “Rick & Morty” joke sequence is quite serious horror. Playing with the idea of horror disease as STD has been to death, but it was fresh back in 1977. The brick of interviews and featurettes on the disc help to explain a ton of Cronenberg’s personal choices in the film. Hell, I got more from the talking heads than I did from the actual Cronenberg commentary. But, I guess it goes that way sometimes.
