Holiday horror has been a thing for decades. And while Christmas and Halloween are the most often turned into bloodbaths, HANUKKAH has been ignored. A holiday just as prevalent as Christmas, it appears that the progressive and diversity rule gets left out in the cold when it comes to horror. NOT ANY MORE. From My Way Pictures, who brought us HOUSE OF THE WOLFMAN, comes HANUKKAH.
Head over to https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/hanukkah-the-movie-horror#/ and get in on a holiday horror like no other. This is a straight horror film NOT A PARODY. Check out the trailer…
Obediah Lazarus is the son of Judah Lazarus, the original Hanukkiller. 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.
