‘Rabies’ spreads to new territories

Jinga takes 'Midnight Son' to AFM

LONDON — Israeli horror pic “Rabies,” helmed and penned by Navot Papushado and Aharon Keshales, has been sold to KSM in Germany, Njuta in Scandinavia and Cinema Novo in Portugal.

Pic, which is being shopped internationally by U.K.-based Jinga Films, is touted as Israel’s first home-grown horror film and follows a group of teens at a deserted nature reserve drawn into a whirlwind of misunderstandings and violence.

Pic, which is repped domestically by XYZ Films, already sold to Image Entertainment in the U.S.

This year at AFM, Jinga will be launching sales on a raft of new genre fare including Scott Leberecht’s “Midnight Son,” a contemporary tale of vampires set in L.A.

Pic, produced by Matt Compton and Eduardo Sanchez, has already been picked up by Image Entertainment for North America.

Jinga is also selling Adam Rehmeier’s “The Bunny Game,” about a prostitute held captive by a deranged truck driver, and Lulu Jarmen’s “Bad Meat,” toplining Jessica Parker Kennedy, Mark Pellegrino, Elisabeth Harnois and Dave Franco.

The fourth title on the Jinga slate is Kevin James Dobson’s “Savages Crossing,” a thriller about a group of strangers who take refuge in a remote roadside diner during a flood. Pic is written, produced and stars John Jarratt (“Wolf Creek”).

Jinga has also added Michael Rymer’s “Face to Face” to its slate, an Australian story about sex, lies and bullying in the workplace.
