Strange things are happening to a handful of people lost in the woods in this offbeat horror film from Israeli filmmakers Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado. Tali (Liat Har Lev) has become trapped in a stretch of mine shaft that hasn't been used in years, and her brother Ofer (David Henry) is desperate to free her, in part for the sake of her safety and partly in fear of their parents learning their shocking secret.

One of those fascinating horror movies that never gets too weird to lose its footing but also stays completely unpredictable.

Keshales' and Papushado's sublime cross-cutting of the film's chronology builds a terrific tension and amplifies every unexpected twist for maximum impact.
The pacing is great, the performances quite good and the cinematography noteworthy; the killer in Rabies are the tonal troubles. Is it a horror film or is it a comedy?
