Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Takes the standard stupid-kids-in-the-woods formula and inverts it to delicious, hilarious and extremely mean effect."
‑ Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
"a dark (if brightly lit) comedy of errors, full of tensions that... reflect a nation's complex social and political landscape, where twinned senses of entitlement and entrapment have produced a treacherous environment best trodden very carefully."
‑ Anton Bitel, Little White Lies
"The pacing is great, the performances quite good and the cinematography noteworthy; the killer in Rabies are the tonal troubles. Is it a horror film or is it a comedy?"
‑ Perri Nemiroff, CinemaBlend.com
"While I can't say I really enjoyed Rabies (the story is just too tired and the characters too stock, for someone raised on horror movies), I do respect its fine filmmaking."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson, Sci-Fi Weekly
"A stalker kicks off an ever-escalating carnival of carnage. (Cleverer than it sounds.)"
‑ Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
"Rabies' ideas about mankind's penchant for hostility are generic and monotonous."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"One of those fascinating horror movies that never gets too weird to lose its footing but also stays completely unpredictable."
‑ Brian Tallerico, The Deadbolt
"Keshales' and Papushado's sublime cross-cutting of the film's chronology builds a terrific tension and amplifies every unexpected twist for maximum impact."
‑ Simon Foster, sbs.com.au
