Rabies (Hebrew: כלבת‎, Kalevet) is a 2010 Israeli film written and directed by Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado. It is considered to be the first feature-length Israeli horror film.[2]


A brother and sister are on the run, determined to keep their incestuous relationship a secret. While hiding deep in a forest, among many traps and landmines, the siblings are not alone: the park ranger, his wife and dog; four friends on their way to have a game of tennis; two police officers; and a serial killer. They all encounter each other in various ways, but not all of them will survive.
