Get ready Bidites! A fan favorite film from Israel is now about to make it's way to US soil when Image Entertainment introduces us Americans to Israel's slasher film debut, Rabies (Kalavet).
The flick garnered rave reviews at the Tribeca 2011 Film Festival and the Fantaa 2011 Film Fest, and features a cast that devotees of Israeli cinema will surely recognize, including Lior Ashenazi (winner, Award of the Israeli Film Academy – Footnote), Ania Bukstein (nominee, Award of the Israeli Film Academy – The Secrets) and Ran Danker (nominee, Award of the Israeli Film Academy – Eyes Wide Open).
Rabies surprises and shocks with its unexpected combination of horror and humor, of paranoia and panic. When a psychotic serial killer is on the loose, his path of rampage crosses paths with Ofer and Tali, a brother and ster combo who have run away from home. But when Tali becomes ensnared in the killer’s trap, it is up to Ofer to find help. Left alone, Tali soon becomes mixed up with an unlikely group of characters, ranging from a set of tennis players to a squad of policemen. All the while they continue to be stalked by the murderer – and when this assasn’s identity is finally revealed, it turns out to be the biggest shock of all
Look for the flick to hit US shelves on February 28, 2012.
