It was recently announced out of Cannes that Image Entertainment has snapped up U.S. rights to Israeli horror film Rabies (review) from XYZ Films. Mongrel Media also nabbed Canadian rights to the pic, which is the directorial debut of Navot Papushado and Aharon Keshales, who also penned the script. The deal includes a theatrical release. But before all of these occurs, the Israeli slasher will screen at this summer’s Film4 FrightFest in London.
Rabies, produced by United Channels Movies, “follows a group of teens at a deserted nature reserve drawn into a whirlwind of misunderstandings and violence.” It toplines Lior Ashkenazi and Ania Bukstein.
