I got the feeling from Rabid that what Cronenberg wanted to make was Teeth (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0780622/), which would have been far more disturbing than an armpit-mouth. I also get the feeling that the notoriety and popularity of Rabid comes courtesy of star, late adult film actress Marilyn Chambers. Chambers was OK given that her role consisted of wandering around aimlessly and occasionally seducing some dupe. The real problem with the film is that it breaks down into yet another dull zombie movie, with one carrier after another being infected and none of them being particularly shocking or frightening and nothing much done to build character in between. Overall it was just an OK movie, not what I would expect of Cronenberg. 2 1/2 stars
