Saw the original Rabid on the weekend, I couldn't sleep and at 3 am on Saturday it was on IFC.

This movie is a budget made Canadian Horror movie about a girl that gets in a motorcycle accident and as a result of experimental treatment develops a appendage under her arm that allows her to feed on blood. It also passes on a version of the rabies virus that effects humans. It had some outright creepy and brutal scenes in it, and a very smart and tragic ending.

But more important was the back story.

The lead actress was Marilyn Chambers who appeared in one of the original ivory soap ads, She then moved into porn and made the infamous Behind the Green Door, and was one of the rare porn actresses that made the jump to main stream before getting forced back into porn, she ran for the VP of the United States as a Libertarian and died at the age of 59.
A good death is its own reward
