Rabid

Rabid, as the dictionary explains means both 'affected with rabies' and 'extremely violent'. Using both definitions, Rabid, is so accurately titled that this one word tells all. Here is an extremely violent, sometimes nauseating, picture about a young woman affected with rabies, running around Montreal infecting others.

Marilyn Chambers, the Whilone Procter & Gamble Ivory Snow girl turned porno film actress, plays the infected one – sort of a cross between Typhoid Mary with rabies and a vampire.

On the one side in the urban jungle are human animals, foaming at the mouth, biting each other in shopping malls, operating rooms and subway cars. On the other side are animals of another sort shooting down those salivating the green foam.
