  • Takes the standard stupid-kids-in-the-woods formula and inverts it to delicious, hilarious and extremely mean effect.

  • Rabies is a very successful, if small scale, work of horror filmmaking fun.

  • This nihilistic, gutsy film's combination of rich ideas and a cultivated ability to deliver all the scares you desire from a good piece of suspenseful gore is an unconventionally infectious product of a thriving Israeli film industry.

  • The central story is drowned in subplot after subplot, red herrings running amok to the point of frustration.

  • While I can't say I really enjoyed Rabies (the story is just too tired and the characters too stock, for someone raised on horror movies), I do respect its fine filmmaking.

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

Audience Reviews for Rabies

  • Jan 05, 2013
    A brother and sister who run away from home find sanctuary in a deserted nature reserve. When the sister falls into the trap of a psychopathic killer, the brother sets out on a race against time to find help. In a twist of fate the rescue of the sister becomes inadvertently intertwined with the lives of a group of young tennis players, a ranger and his dog, as well as a team of policemen. Rabies is an interestingly odd throwback to backwoods slashers and a pretty decent, entertaining, very first horror film from Israel. The film was never really scary because I've seen so many films of its kind, nor did it try to be. It's tense, fast paced, bloody and a good time for the most part. It just wasn't above average to make it memorable or worth your time. The performances were average, no one really stood out, and no one was lousy, just ok. The characters made smart and dumb decisions but were forgettable and almost cardboard cut outs, but were likable. Writers and Directors Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado did a pretty good effort with this horror film, especially for first timers. The unpredictability of the story was a breathe of fresh air for a movie like this. Yet at the same time it could of been much better if they took it a notch further with higher stakes. They are definitely decent filmmakers that have potential, so I'm curious to see what they bring us next. Overall, it's not your normal backwoods slasher and has enough carnage in it to satisfy fans, but it's nothing all that memorable. It's a decent effort and Israel's first spin on the genre which was neat, just nothing you need to see right away. Netflix rental. 5.9 out of 10
