Rabid Dogs is an Italian film directed by Mario Bava. The film stars Riccardo Cucciolla, Aldo Caponi and George Eastman. Rabid Dogs is about a group of bank robbers who kidnap a young woman (Lander). During their escape, they also take in a man and his sick child, all while trying to avoid being caught by the police.
Rabid Dogs was a departure for Bava, who was known for his colourful horror films prior to creating Rabid Dogs. Bava finished filming in three weeks but found during post-production that his producer Roberto Loyola had gone bankrupt, which stopped any kind of production continuing since the producer still owned the rights. The film remained uncompleted and unseen for 20 years until it began showing up in several different formats on home video with added scenes for continuity and endings. Several different versions of the film exist, including one re-created by Mario's son Lamberto Bava, which was not well received.
