"Cronenberg's cult classic..."
Premiere - 07/01/2004
"[T]he Cronenberg 'body horror' flick in which the B touches almost subsume the intellectual content."
Adult film star Marilyn Chambers stars as a motorcycle bad-girl who gets into an accident and undergoes an operation. A gaping sore develops under her arm and soon she's guzzling all the blood she can get her hands on. Her unsuspecting victims become infected with a rabies-like disease and are transformed into bloodsucking ghouls.
