Written and directed by David Cronenberg (Videodrome, The Fly), Rabid stars adult film star Marilyn Chambers (Behind the Green Door) as Rose, a young woman who develops an insatiable thirst for human blood after undergoing experimental plastic surgery.
While driving through the Quebec countryside, Rose and her boyfriend, Hart (Frank Moore), get into a motorcycle accident. They’re brought to the nearby Keloid Clinic for Plastic Surgery for emergency treatment. Hart’s banged up with a broken hand and a separated shoulder, but Rose is severely injured and burned by the fiery crash. Dr. Keloid (Howard Ryshpan) decides to perform a new radical procedure on the burn victim, one which uses “morphogenetically neutral” grafts to replace the damaged skin and organs.
