Review Rabid Dogs stands as perhaps the most interesting film in Bava's filmography, for several reasons. First off, this was the only Bava film to completely eschew the fantasy/horror elements he was so well known for. This film takes place entirely in the real world, with no supernatural or fantasy elements coloring its narrative whatsoever...The filmmaking itself is brilliant here, as it often was in all of Bava's work. Unfortunately, Mario had something of a cursed career - some of his best work was thoroughly trashed at the time of its release (including Bay of Blood and Lisa and the Devil, his two films made prior to this one)...The acting here is top notch, with all of the ensemble cast turning in credible, intriguing, performances. There's no weak link here - everyone shines in the scenes they need to carry, and the result is a film that seems very real - and very intense.

Review Rabid Dogs is in everyway the perfect swan song for its ailing director. Both the last film he'd direct on his own and the only film devoid of his trademark style, this was both a closing and reinvention of the man who had shocked and entertained so many. The definitive statement on aging and the difference between reckless youth and composed adulthood, its finale is as bold a statement as the director would ever make. Anchor Bay does the master proud in presenting Rabid Dogs and the grossly inferior Kidnapped cut on the same disc with solid extras, an improved subtitle track and a surprisingly vibrant transfer. Bava fans will be in heaven with this, but those who never took to his gothic horror need to check this out too. If ever there was a window into the corrupt brilliance of the Bava, this is it. Highly recommended.

The Austin Chronicle Raw and nerve-racking!
Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine Quite cynically, Bava evokes a human society where no one is to be trusted.
