101 Films is proud to present Rabid (1977), the enduringly tense and gruesome horror that marked a landmark in David Cronenberg's early career. Title 009 on the Black Label, this double Blu-ray is stacked with extras, including Part 1 of a new feature length documentary on Canadian horror film.

When Rose suffers terrible injuries in a motorcycle crash, she is taken to a nearby clinic run by Dr Keloid for experimental skin-graft surgery. At first, the revolutionary procedure proves successful, but it soon leaves Rose with a strange orifice protruding from her armpit and an insatiable thirst for human blood. Hell-bent on satisfying her bloodlust, Rose leaves a trail of insane and uncontrollably aggressive victims, as the unknown virus engulfs North America in an orgy of frenetic violence.

Rabid stars Marilyn Chambers, Howard Ryshpan, Frank Moore and Patricia Gage (American Psycho) and is written and directed by David Cronenberg (Videodrome) and produced by John Dunning, Ivan Reitman and Don Carmody.

With 2K scan from the original camera negative at director David Cronenberg's preferred aspect ratio (1.66:1), Rabid is released on Blu-ray 26th August 2019 from 101 Films.
