Vampiress Review: "Rabid" (1977)

The Gist: After getting in a motorcycle accident a woman who was treated using experimental methods begins feeding on the blood of others and giving them a mutated form or rabies.

Female Vampire Factor: Softcore film queen Marilyn Chambers plays Rose.
Rose was in a motorcycle accident and is taken to a clinic where they use an experimental treatment to treat her.  Upon waking up from the treatment she freaks out and asks the first person to come to her aid to hold her.  She then feeds on him.
This pretty much happens whenever she's on screen.  She basically hugs people to death.  As she hugs them a leech like tube comes from her armpit and attaches itself to them sucking them dry of their blood.
Those she feeds on if they aren't killed then eventually just develop a rabies like illness that makes them attack others.

Final Opinion: Loved this movie,  Rose is a straight up predator.  Also helps that if she isn't feeding on someone she's either half naked or topless (I mean this is Marilyn Chambers after all).
I give this film a Vampire Beauty Rating of 4 out of 5.  If she was a traditional vampire it would definitely get a five but she is still seducing people to feed on.   In 2019 the Soska sisters made a much more PG rated remake of this which I review HERE.
