Comments

Not as good as "Shivers" and "The Brood". A collision between motorcycle and motorhome on a country road leaves Hart Read(Frank Moore)and his girlfriend Rose(Marilyn Chambers)badly injured.Read is stable enough to be shipped to a hospital,but Rose is shipped to the clinic.The operation to save her life appears at first to be a complete success,but soon all hell breaks loose.Marilyn Chambers is pretty believable as Rose-even Cronenberg was surprised that she didn't do more mainstream movies.The film has some great moments of terror-the shooting of a man trying to get into a carand the immediate washing down of the windshield that follows,is a perfect example."Rabid" isn't as gruesome as "Shivers" and "The Brood",but if you are a fan of Cronenberg's movies you can't miss it.Highly recommended.
