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

October 19, 2009
Revolting, yes, but still, an intelligent predecessor to some more moronic efforts in the same genre.

While Chambers does add some resonance to the film as a sexual icon, her acting ability is decidedly limited.

None of the other recent apocalypse movies has shown so much political or cinematic sophistication.

Te raw, seductive appeal that Chambers conveys is what really keeps you going from one sequence to the next.

A strong indicator of the auteur's obsessions but lacks the sustained energy and invention of most of his other work.

Chambers acquits herself well, and Cronenberg is nothing less than competent.

Ultimately Rabid boils down to zombified sluts and shock moments but it's an irresistible combination that Cronenberg handles well.
