‘Friday the 13th’ Themed Poster For New Slasher ‘Hanukkah’

Posted 03 Dec 2010 in The Saga

Bloody Disgusting just posted up a new teaser one-sheet for the upcoming slasher/comedy, Hanukkah. The new film is gearing up for filming soon and to help push the hype for the film, they sent BD their Friday the 13th themed teaser poster. The poster is hilariously and accurately rendered as the creators did a good job keeping the essence of the original 1980 film’s poster. If you’re interested in what the film will be about check out the synopsis below.

“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.”

    Too bad Jason’s victims can’t just “embrace their faith” to avoid getting killed. I guess it couldn’t hurt though.

    Copy cats!!! But film sounds good….even if it is a bit too “on the edge” with the faith.

    I’m honestly not one of God’s choosen people (I’m Catholic), but this does look slightly cool/amusing. Especially since, and even with me as a HUGE hardcore old school retro Slasher lover, collector & defender, I know the sub-genre of the lst three full decades has more or less been badly done to death. I might check it out if word of mouth is generally good and it isn’t too lame. Maybe on Blu Ray if it gets a high definition (HD) release.

    BRILLIANT! One of the few holidays that hasn’t had its own slasher film dedicated to it. This could be truly hilarious.
