Film: “Big Bad Wolves”
Join us at the Spooky Movie International Horror Film Festival for the unforgettable hit from Israel, BIG BAD WOLVES.
“Featuring superb performances by the principal actors, Big Bad Wolves is mesmerizing from start to finish, including a haunting final image that you’ll find impossible to forget.” – The Hollywood Reporter
“Some thrillers are described as being ‘edge of your seat’ affairs, but with Big Bad Wolves, it’s more like you are hovering just beyond the chair, midair, waiting for the story to resolve itself. ” – The Playlistt
WINNER: Cheval Noir Award for Best Film, Fantasia Film Festival, 2013
A series of brutal murders puts the lives of three men on a collision course: The father of the latest victim now out for revenge, a vigilante police detective operating outside the boundaries of law, and the main suspect in the killings – a religious studies teacher arrested and released due to a police blunder. With elements of horror, crime thriller, revenge drama, and wicked black comedy, Big Bad Wolves takes genre-bending to bold new levels. This sense of originality, along with its subversive political subtext, the Israeli directing team behind the 2010 cult smash Rabies (Kalevet) have returned with an unsettling and unforgettable follow-up which is already being heralded as one of the best genre films of 2013.
