Rabid (1977)

Streaming on Amazon Prime | imdb | trailer

Experimental plastic surgery leads to the zombie apocalypse. This is arguably David Cronenberg’s best early film. Yes, the low budget shows at times. However this is intelligent, action-packed horror, and among my all-time favorites. It’s a shame Marilyn Chambers wasn’t able to permanently transition into legit acting. She’s good in this movie.

Bonus: Check out all the awesome Rabid posters and lobby cards at Wrong Side of the Art.

Blu-ray available from Shout Factory.
