Critic Reviews for Rabid
Here is an extremely violent, sometimes nauseating, picture about a young woman affected with rabies, running around Montreal infecting others.
None of the other recent apocalypse movies has shown so much political or cinematic sophistication.
Remains effectively squirmy, gruesome, and even prescient nearly forty years after its release.
After the shock tactics of Shivers, Cronenberg's next venture into body horror is more subdued, but holds up surprisingly well.
Cinema as a sustained bout of fever, a melancholy defense of Pandora
Revolting, yes, but still, an intelligent predecessor to some more moronic efforts in the same genre.
Audience Reviews for Rabid
Okay, but kind of off putting. A lot of blood and gore as you would expect from a movie about a freak case of rabies. It kind of made me uncomfortable at times - it didn't seem all that nice towards women, for example the extra "mouth", a lot of female nudity and though the lead actress is good, it is interesting to watch the extra features on this disc and discover she was actually a porn star. I'm a bit iffy on this director.
Hands down the best Canadian zombie film starring a porn star.
Yet more gross-out fun from Cronenberg. This is basically Shivers again on a much larger scale as the chaos and madness of rabies infected people plague the city of Montreal thanks to the vampirous Marilyn Chambers and her nasty armpit. If you liked Shivers and other infection/plague movies like 28 days Later than this is worth a viewing.
