I remember when this came out where I live – straight to VOD and they were NOT sporting this movie poster. I think it was a girl with blood coming out of her mouth and the summary indicated it was Israeli with subtitles, so I passed it off as a movie I would have to pay for to read about people with rabies over in Israel. That just didn’t sound like my type of thing. Then Joseph from The Cinema Monster came around asking if I’d seen it and I told him that same story and he was all “NOOOOOOOOOOOO Rabies is good!! I thought this would be your type of movie!” So I was all “OK” and picked it up and god damn!! this was fantastic AND my type of movie! There’s really not much about it that I didn’t like other than the terrible, misleading title that has nothing to do with anything. Everyone should totally give this a shot if you ever get a chance.
In this movie that has nothing to do with rabies, we encounter a serial killer, a ranger and his dog, a brother and sister, four tennis players and a couple of cops all intermingling out in the forest – with deadly – and fun – results. Did you ever see VERY BAD THINGS? I like how when I was looking through the *link this* module here, number one on my *link to Very Bad Things* option was JUG FACE. Fucking JUG FACE. Hilarious – not the movie – the title. I still liked it though, somewhat. Anyway, remember how things in Very Bad Things just kept getting more and more and more out of control? Well that was a comedy and this has a little humor but it’s reminiscent of that – things just keep getting worse and worse and bloodier and bloodier as time goes on. It was awesome!
We start off with a woman down in a hole. Why? We have no idea but a man opens a slot and starts talking to her about how she’s in some sort of trap set by a madman and he leaves to figure out how to open it up and we hear some slashing and ripping. Cut to four youths driving around in a car talking about sex when they pull over so that blond girl there can piss. When she gets back in the car they fire it up and BLAMMO – run into something. Cut to this forest ranger and his dog and his coworker and she heads off to work and he hear something in the woods so he cocks his gun and heads off.
I don’t want to just sit here and go into the entire plot – because you should see this to enjoy it, but eventually they all intermingle in some fashion and – well – it’s worth your time, shitty title or not. I would be surprised to find someone who’s seen it that didn’t enjoy this in some fashion. I could have used a little more closure on one of the characters but – oh well… this is definitely worth your time…
