Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Rabid

Casting porn legend, Marilyn Chambers, is a stroke of ironic genius for its feminist empowerment angle. Her preying on sexual predators and anti-feminist females VIA a phallic-like vampiric sucker in her armpit, works like the penultimate cautionary tale to tell horny young adults not just about rape, but also about raging hormones causing generational hysteria in fear of an STD apocalypse. A pre-AIDS scare film.
