Rabid Review


Very Good
David Cronenberg is infamous for keeping an audience uncomfortable. His creative knack generally focuses on the alien forces within a character that separate them from their environment, with said special qualities usually generated by some sort of naïve societal push towards technology. Such is the case with eXistenZ, with its reliance on creepy looking, pulsating pods to Seth Brundle accidentally turning himself into a half-human, half-insect.

It's a theme that runs as far back in his work as 1977 with Rabid. Rose (Marilyn Chambers) and her boyfriend Hart (Frank Moore) get into a motorcycle accident not far from a hospital that mostly functions as a plastic surgery ward. Though Dr. Dan Keloid (Howard Ryshpan) is seen refusing to become the "Colonel Sanders of plastic surgery" as his business partner would like to achieve, Rose's predicament does allow him to experiment with a new method of grafting skin, which he feels is the only way to save her life. He is enthused to advance medicine for the sake of humanity, and his intentions are honorable, but the result is that he creates a variation on rabies that becomes an epidemic.

Blood & Donuts Review


OK
Oh, those darned Canadians! Who would think to put a vampire movie in a donut shop!? 25 years after "going to sleep in a bag," our nightcrawler Boya (Gordon Currie) decides to wake up, whereupon he gets into all kinds of trouble with a local cab driver, two bumbling cops, a bowling alley owner (played by David Cronenberg!), and a waitress at the aforementioned donut shop. How any of this fits together, what it has to do with anything, and why someone thought it would make a good movie is all beyond me, but the few very dry and wry comedic touches make it, well, more fun than having someone suck out your blood.
