I checked out the Facebook page for this very original horror movie called Hanukkah: The Movie. We've had plenty of Christmas themed horror movies but I think this might be the first here and it's coming from some talent too! Eban McGarr who brought us Sick Girl (which rocked) directed this "Torah-fying new tale of horah." Please check out the cool poster art below for this movie! There's no release date yet but we'll keep y'all posted!
Obediah Lazarus is the son of Judah Lazarus, the original Hannukiller. In 1983, Judah terrorized NY for seven nights and was preparing to sacrifice his eight year old son, Obediah, on the eighth night. Judah was convinced it was God’s will, like Abraham and Isaac, to sacrifice his only son to God. Luckily for Obediah, police tracked Judah down and stopped the sacrifice, but Judah was gunned down in the process. Warped by hatred with no guidance, Obediah Lazarus becomes a religious extremist, intolerant of non-Jews, "bad Jews", and those he perceives to be enemies of the Jewish faith. He is about to unleash eight nights of horror.
A group of Jewish teens are getting ready to party for the holidays, but are in for a Festival of Frights. With the help of a wise Rabbi, they deduce that the murder victims have violated Judaic law and that their only chance at survival is to embrace their faith.
The poster art reminds me of some other movie? Somebody help me here...
