What begins as a pleasure motorcycle ride for Rose (MARILYN CHAMBERS) and her boyfriend, Hart (FRANK MOORE), turns into a frightening and horrifying experience.
Rabid is the chilling story of Rose and the nightmare she endures because of a very sudden and unexpected motorcycle accident.
Critically injured with massive burns to her abdomen, Rose undergoes emergency surgery at the Keloid Clinic of Cosmetic Surgery. Dr. Dan Keloid (HOWARD RYSHPAN), the director of the institute uses daring and experimental surgical techniques to save Rose's life.
Though successful, the operation leaves Rose in a deep coma. During her recovery period Rose's body responds in a terrifying manner. Rose awakens from the coma with a ravenous appetite - for blood.
The terror spreads as her victims, driven into frenzied rage, in turn attack and contaminate others. First the clinic, then the countryside, finally, the city.
As the disease spreads, the police and health authorities race against time to discover the cause and develop a vaccine.
Rose, having escaped the clinic, hides herself in a girlfriend's apartment completely unaware that she is the sole cause and carrier of this deadly infection.
The epidemic, now seriously out of control, forces civil authorities to declare martial law. The infected are systematically destroyed. Others, who have escaped the virulent disease are innoculated en masse, under military guard. Decontamination teams sweep the city, collecting bodies of the diseased victims.
Finally, becoming aware that she is the cause of this widespread disease, Rose takes drastic measures to end the nightmare.
What happens makes Rabid one of the most chilling and suspense filled films of the year!
