In another slow week of sales, Matchbox Twenty’s “North” bows at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, the rock band’s first at the summit. The effort moved 95,000 copies, and is the first full-length in ten years from the band. Their previous “More Than You Think You Are,” out in 2002, debuted and peaked at No. 6, but with 178,000 in its first week. Alt-rock troupe Imagine Dragons bow at No. 2 with its “Night Visions,” selling 83,000. Sales were helped in part by the popularity of their single “It’s Time,” plus sales stickers at iTunes and Amazon MP#. »

Some murderous schlemiel is loose in the woods in the Israeli horror film Rabies.
The 2010 foreign-language film Rabies is touted on its press materials as being “Israel’s first horror film.” Oy.
More a slasher-comedy hybrid than a straight-ahead horror movie, Rabies looks in on a rampaging psychotic serial killer who crosses paths with Ofer (Henry David) and Tali (Liat Harley), a brother and sister who have run away from home. When Tali finds herself ensnared in the killer’s trap, it’s up to Ofer to find help. Left alone, Tali soon becomes mixed up with an unlikely group of characters, ranging from a set of tennis players to a squad of policemen. Together, the group try to eliminate the killer, but first they must figure out his true identity.
