From producer Felissa Rose (fan favourite star of Sleepaway Camp) and written and directed by Eben McGarr comes HANUKKAH on DVD and Blu-ray, the film that Josh Weiss of Forbes.com called “…an outrageously violent horror movie that pays homage to graphic 80’s cinema with a Hebraic twist and a seemingly endless supply of chutzpah.”
HANUKKAH is also notable for featuring an original score by horror legend Harry Manfredini (Friday The 13th series, Deep Star Six, House). The film also features a cult-horror fan favorite all-star cast that includes Charles Fleischer (Who Framed Roger Rabbit), Caroline Williams (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), P.J. Soles (Halloween) and Kyle Pacek (The Mandolorian). It is also the last film by horror and grindhouse movie legends Sid Haig (3 From Hell, Jackie Brown, The Devil’s Rejects, Pit Stop) and Dick Miller (The Terminator, Gremlins, The ‘Burbs).
Obediah Lazarus is the son of Judah Lazarus, the original Hanukiller. 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.
