A psychotic serial killer on the loose in the woods crosses paths with a group of unsuspecting teenagers. Soon people are dying one by one… but the bad guy isn't who you think. Turning genre conventions on their head with a smart script and plenty of unexpected scares, RABIES is a surprising debut worthy of its mantle as Israel's first-ever slasher horror film.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Takes the standard stupid-kids-in-the-woods formula and inverts it to delicious, hilarious and extremely mean effect.
Fresh: Keshales' and Papushado's sublime cross-cutting of the film's chronology builds a terrific tension and amplifies every unexpected twist for maximum impact.
Fresh: a dark (if brightly lit) comedy of errors, full of tensions that... reflect a nation's complex social and political landscape, where twinned senses of entitlement and entrapment have produced a treacherous environment best trodden very carefully.
The film and acting are good. Only one problem, ok two.
1) the only plot I can see as feasible is how circumstances can lead to one messed up day.
2)the title makes no sense.
Beyond that a good starting point for a newbie in the biz.
