Hanukkah


What up, cool ghouls!

I just caught this news from our friends at DC and cracked up, so I knew I had to share.

Eben McGarr (House of the Wolf Man, Sick Girl) is working on a holiday themed slasher flick. No, not Halloween....nope, not Christmas, and well, Eli Roth has Thanksgiving going so.......

It's the Festival of Lights' turn! Yup, that's right - Hanukkah is coming, and DC has it listed as a "horror comedy."

Here's the official synopsis:

"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."

I love the holiday-themed flicks, and much like Thanksgiving, I think Hanukkah could be a blast. More scary details as I get 'em!
