In recent weeks it's begun to seem like Malaysia, Indonesia, and Thailand have turned into a veritable hot bed of b-movie horrordom.

Can’t make it to the Tribeca Film Festival? Don't despair. Just like last year, Tribeca 2011 will have an online component, allowing you to watch some of the films from this year's fest in the comfort of your own home. The only catch? Just one of them is a horror film: Rabies (aka Kalevet) directed by Navot Papushado and Aharon Keshales.

Recently we had the opportunity to sit down with director Ho-Cheung Pang to talk about his latest film, Dream Home (review here), which is available now on VOD courtesy of IFC Midnight. Dig it!
Yet another terror tale is on the way from Rodar y Rodar, who seem to be on fire lately with several bitchin' genre projects cookin', and this next one will mark the English language debut from one of their directors.
Okay, before you get all excited, a little clarification ... we're not talking about Venom from Spider-Man, we're not talking about the band Venom, we're not talking about the car, the limited edition Nike basketball shoes, or even the crappy 2005 flick of the same name. No, this is an entirely different beast.
One of the best damned horror movies this year, I Saw the Devil, is now playing in limited theatrical release via Magnet, and we've gotten our claws into another clip from the psycho revenge tale for you!
One film making its North American debut at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival that we're extremely intrigued by is the Israeli slasher Kalevet (aka Rabies) from co-directors Navot Papushado and Aharon Keshales. Synopsis:
