The zombie apocalypse is upon us, and ground zero for the end times is Jerusalem’s Old City.

That’s the plot to the new English-language horror film JeruZalem directed by Israeli-born Yoav and Doron Paz, who have received multiple awards from numerous festivals for their bigscreen scare flick.

Released last year to limited audiences, the movie has since garnered the attention of not only horror-film fanatics but larger, mainstream movie-goers as well.

The film first opened in July of 2015 at the Fantasia Fim Festival held in Montreal, Canada. Shortly thereafter, it made its US debut at Bruce Campbell’s Horror Film Festival in Chicago on August 23.

According to Variety Magazine, “most of the action is seen from the vantage point of a character’s Google Glass-like eyewear – until the second half falls back on apocalypseand zombie-movie conventions.”

The story follows two US anthropology students who make their way to the Jewish state on the eve of Yom Kippur. As the holiday approaches, there are vaguely supernatural premonitions that this isn’t like any other High Holiday period in Jerusalem, Variety adds.

Since the start of the New Year, JeruZalem has debuted in the Philippines and Germany, after which it is expected to be released on Blue-ray and DVD to wider audiences around the globe.‘JeruZalem’ spreads to audiences world wide Epic Pictures has put the award-winning Israeli horror film up for streaming on digital platforms • Jerusalem Post staff The zombie apocalypse is upon us, and ground zero for the end times is Jerusalem’s Old City.
