Hanukkah – USA, 2018

‘Jason can have them on Friday… Obediah will be observing the Sabbath.’

Hanukkah is a 2018 American slasher horror feature film written, co-produced and directed by Eben McGarr (House of the Wolf Man; Sick Girl). The My Way Pictures production stars Sid Haig (Spider Baby, House of 1,000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects), Caroline Williams (Texas Chainsaw Massacre II, Contracted, Halloween II, Hatchet III), P.J. Soles (Halloween, Carrie, The Devil’s Rejects) and Nick Principe (Baphomet; Sky Sharks; Virus of the Dead).

Obediah Lazarus is the son of Judah Lazarus, the original Hanukiller. In 1983, Judah terrorised New York 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…
