Billed as Israel’s first slasher film, Rabies follows a brother and sister with a dark secret who run away from home and find sanctuary in a deserted nature reserve. When the girl is ensnared in an underground trap by a psychotic serial killer, her brother races to rally help before the man returns. The girl’s rescue becomes inadvertently intertwined with the lives of a group of hapless teens on their way to a tennis match, a grumpy forest ranger and his sarcastic wife, their dog, and apathetic police officers. All these characters are gradually drawn into a whirlwind of misunderstandings, fears and violence.

Rabies wields a tart wit, several innovative twists on genre conventions and a heaped helping of bloody mayhem.
