FREAK OUT (2015) Reviews and overview


‘Don’t worry, the Army’s got your back!’

Freak Out – original title: Mesuvag Harig – is a 2015 Israeli comedy horror film directed by Boaz Armoni from a screenplay by Lior Lederman. It stars Itay Zvolon, Kye Korabelnikov, Assaf Ben-Shimon, Eran Peretz and Ofer Ruthenberg.

Matan, a soldier in the IDF, sets off for a week of patrolling in a remote base in the north of the country with his unit. Overwhelmed with homesickness, he becomes an easy target for the other soldiers who try their best to make his life miserable.

However, it is not long before strange and frightening things begin to happen to all the soldiers and they start question whether they will come out of this experience alive…

Freak Out will be available on iTunes, Amazon and other VOD platforms on April 11th, 2017.


“As horrible as it sounds, Matan’s awful treatment is what pulls the viewer into the story and makes us invest in him as a character as well as the others, for good or bad. The horror angle could have been developed or polished a little better to improve the movie however the build up is so well-paced and executed that it remains a gripping watch.”
