Based on a semi-autobiographical novel by Elisabeth Escher, Hanna’s Sleeping Dogs explores a young girl’s embrace of her heritage and her family’s past as she grapples with a newfound identity.
“There are three gates to hell. One in the desert, one in the ocean, and one in Jerusalem.” – Jeremiah 19
It’s Judgement Day in Jerusalem. When two American frat girls are invited by a handsome young archaeologist to party in Jerusalem, they are ill-prepared for what’s about to unfold: the end of the world. Trapped within the walls of the city, the trio must survive against a plague of the undead and winged demons.
Winner of the Audience Award at the Jerusalem Film Festival, JeruZalem is one of Israel’s first-ever horror films. A schlockyromp with a keen sense of humour, JeruZalem is the cleverest twist on the found-footage sub-genre to date.
“JeruZalem’s production values rival much of Hollywood’s output, so if these are Israel’s baby steps into genre territory, then we are in for some great things.” – The Horror Section
