David Cronenberg's Rabid Marilyn Chamber

Scream Factory have really been impressing everyone at Dark Universe as of late, and it’s no secret that we are huge fans of their horror title release catalog to date. First up, on November 15th Dead Ringers will be released on a Collector’s Edition Blu-Ray, then on November 22nd Rabid will be hitting shelves, two ultimate classics from David Cronenberg. Check out the full details on both editions below.

DEAD RINGERS SYNOPSIS:

“Claire Niveau (Geneviève Bujold) is in love with handsome Beverly. Or does she love Elliot? It’s uncertain because brothers Beverly and Elliot Mantle are identical twins sharing the same medical practice, apartment and women – including unsuspecting Claire.

In portrayals that won the New York Film Critics Circle Best Actor Award, Jeremy Irons plays twin gynecologists whose emotional dependency collapses into mind games, madness and murder. David Cronenberg (The Fly) won the Los Angeles Film Critics Awards Best Director honors for melding split-screen techniques, body doubles and Iron’s uncanny acting into an eerie, fact-based tale.”

RABID SYNOPSIS:

“With Rabid, acclaimed director David Cronenberg (The Fly, Dead Ringers, Naked Lunch) delivers a high-tension thriller filled with “zombified sluts and shock moments… an irresistible combination that Cronenberg handles well” (Almar Haflidason, BBC)!

After undergoing radical emergency surgery, Rose (former adult film star Marilyn Chambers in her first leading role in a mainstream film) develops an insatiable desire for blood. She searches out victims to satisfy her incurable craving, infecting them with an unknown disease which in turn swiftly drives them insane… and makes them equally bloodthirsty.
