Rabid (1977)

Director: David Cronenberg

Starring: Marilyn Chambers, Frank Moore, Joe Silver, Howard Ryshpan

More info: IMDb

Tagline: Pray it doesn't happen to you.

Plot: A young woman develops a taste for human blood after undergoing experimental plastic surgery, and her victims turn into rabid, blood-thirsty zombies who proceed to infect others, which turns into a city-wide epidemic.

My rating: 7/10

Will I watch it again? Yup.

#42 on 42nd Street Forever Vol. 2: The Deuce (part of the TRAILER TRASH PROJECT)

RABID has that George Romero 70s vibe and it's great for a low budget 70s horror. It's got a nice pace, the story's interesting and the performances are good. Chambers, mostly known for porn output (most notably, BEHIND THE GREEN DOOR (1972)), is fun to watch. She's got that 1970s 'cute' look down pat. I really enjoyed it. Not much else to say beyond that I suppose.
