Splendid Cinema presents Rabies (Kalevet), the first ever Israeli horror feature film, on October 28th at 7:30pm at Worcester Arts Workshop. Perfect to finish off your Halloween weekend in the city!
Rabies tells the interlocking stories of a brother and sister, a group of friends, and a man and his dog, and what happens to them when they enter the forest populated by a maniac, a devious policeman and landmines . Contrary to what you might first think, Rabies is not about a viral outbreak, frothing at the mouth or otherwise, Rabies instead is about the human capability for violence that lies dormant… until provoked.
Rabies succeeds in being both violent and shocking, whilst also being darkly comic at times and ripping the horror movie playbook to shreds with its fresh, meticulously crafted script.
Clever, easy to watch and a whole lot of fun, Rabies is the perfect thing to finish off your Halloween weekend!
Have a gander at the trailer!
