After extensive surgery following a motorcycle accident a young girl develops an intermittently rabid condition accompanied by the need to stab people with a kind of hypodermic 'penis' in her armpit.

The Review

All the virtues of low-budget Cronenberg: brisk, tacky, and bags of bite. The metaphors are obvious and the whole thing is beneath taste.
