BLACK CHRISTMAS. CHRISTMAS EVIL. SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT. When it comes to holiday-themed horror flicks, Christmas has pretty much dominated. Well, move over Saint Nick, because SICK GIRL’s Eben McGarr is aiming to direct HANUKKAH, the first Festival of Lights fright film.
McGarr, who also wrote-produced-directed HOUSE OF THE WOLF MAN, put up two posters (which you can check out below) and a plot outline on his HANUKKAH Facebook page.
“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 8-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.”
Oy vey! Will this really get made? Who knows? But these HALLOWEEN-inspired one-sheets are kinda funny. Mazel tov!
