A nation with a significant history in producing character dramas, war related films and not a whole lot else, there are signs that Israel may be slowly coming around to the world of genre film. And they're diving in full force with their first ever slasher, Rabies
Jointly directed by Navot Papushado and Aharon Keshales - a former film critic turned director - the film doesn't look to break any particularly new ground but executes the familiar tropes with style while putting a distinct spin on it. Here's the official synopsis:
A brother and sister, in their twenties, run away from home after their dark secret is discovered. They find temporary refuge in a deserted nature reserve. When the sister falls into a hunting trap, set by a psychotic killer, the brother sets out in a race against time to rescue her. A forest ranger and his old dog, two apathetic cops, four tennis players and a murderer, wandering carefree amongst his traps, will all be gradually drawn into a whirlwind of misunderstandings, fears and violence.
