Eben McGarr’s Holiday themed slasher “Hanukkah” is having it’s world premiere on Saturday December 1, 2018 at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles, California.
“Hanukkah” stars Sid Haig (Spider Baby, House of 1,000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects) as Judah Lazarus, Scream Queen Royalty Caroline Williams (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, Halloween II, Sharknado 4, Hatchet III, Leprechaun 3, Stepfather II, the list goes on and on) as Ana Lazarus, P.J. Soles (Halloween, Carrie, The Devil’s Rejects) as Mrs. Horowitz, and Charles Fleischer (Who Framed Roger Rabbit, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Zodiac) as Amon Feist.
OK. What is “Hanukkah” About?
“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.”
Look for incredible performances from the entire cast, including Caroline Williams who turns her well established image inside out in the first “Hanukkah” horror themed movie of its kind. Caroline Williams is no stranger to controversial roles, playing Stretch in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (who can forget her encounter arousing Leatherface over the ice bucket to save her life), and has avoided going nude in her films over her incredibly iconic 40 year career. Now playing a mother in “Hanukkah”, Williams is approaching her role in an extremely non-traditional way, breaking all the barriers and creating a gigantic twist, by exposing all in this realistic, gritty horror thriller.
