"Not Bad Sci-Fi/Horror Flick!"

David Cronenberg's 1977 sci-fi/horror film stars Marilyn Chambers, Frank Moore and Joe Silver. This begins with woman, Rose (Chambers) riding a motorcycle with her boyfriend, Hart (Moore). They get into an accident and Rose goes into a coma, but needs immediate surgery. A month later, she awakens with a lethal appendage craving blood. When she starts feeding on strangers, an infectious, epidemic spreads. The late, Silver plays Hart's friend, Murray. This isn't bad, the late, Chambers was good in this and there's gruesome make-up effects. I'd give this a try.

Pray it doesn't happen to you...

As big of a name that David Cronenberg is in the horror scene, then I can't really claim to be a fan of everything that he touches. I have never heard about "Rabid" before I happened to stumble upon in this late in 2017. I read the synopsis and it sounded like something that could potentially be alright, as it did have that zombiesque vibe to it.

I managed to endure 30 minutes of "Rabid" before I gave up out of sheer and utter boredom. I actually found myself with my mobile phone in my hand and was playing a game while watching this movie. Yeah, it was that boring to me.

From what I managed to see during the 30 minutes that I sat through, then there was nothing appealing or interesting here that fell into my taste and preference. So I can in all honesty say that I am not going to return to watch "Rabid" later on in order to finish it.

As for the cast and their acting talents, well, I can't really complain about anything here. The acting seemed adequate considering that the movie was from 1977 and given the limitations of the script and storyline imposed on them.

"Rabid" didn't really make much use of special effects in the 30 minutes that I managed to endure. So whether or not the movie actually did well on the effects department, that I cannot make a proper statement about.

This was a rather bland and uneventful 30 minutes that I will never get back. And from what I saw, then my rating of "Rabid" is a meager 3 out of 10 stars, and I do feel somewhat large and generous here actually. The movie cover boasted "Pray it doesn't happen to you", which actually happened to summarize the feeling of having to sit down to watch the movie quite well.

Non-essential Cronenberg

Too similar to Shivers, which has superior special effects and builds tension with more skill. Of the nine Cronenberg features I've seen, Rabid is easily the worst.

Rabid contains a scene that denigrates Native Canadians for no point other than a cheap and lousy gag.
