Japanese poster for David Cronenberg’s 1977 foam-flecked horrorfest Rabid, starring Marilyn Chambers. It's a two-sided B2 style promo, which means it's double-sided. We’ve already posted two Rabid one-sheets here and here, but each one we find is better than the last. We were not anywhere close to an age to have seen this when it was released, but we've seen it on DVD since and it's very effective, in a ’70s low budget way. What's clear watching it is that Cronenberg was headed for bigger things. You might even have thought the same of Chambers if you didn't already know her mainstream film career didn't work out. Along with the poster flipside we also have three rare promo images from the film. Rabid premiered in the U.S. in April 1977, and reached Japan today in 1978.
