Dread Central's First Original THE GOLEM Announced, Trailer And Poster Revealed
In the last year, Dread Central Presents has really upped the ante. They've come into their own as a horror media outlet as well as picking up a slew of films that have covered a wide range of the genre. From Natasha Kermani's excellent sci-fi trip Imitation Girl to the masterfully made doc on Kane Hodder, the company is a horror dream house now.
Well, they're not stopping there. Now they're moving into the original pictures game and they've just announced the first of (hopefully) many with The Golem.
If you're not familiar with the mythical background of the Golem, it's a centuries old folklore that is based heavily in Jewish heritage, and luckily this films to be embracing that history. We're certainly pumped on the idea of Dread making fresh new product like this, and it's awesome to a mythology that is oft-overlooked explored, especially in a horror capacity.
In anticipation of the European premiere at FrightFest, Epic Pictures is proud to present a new trailer and poster for The Golem, the new feature film from the directors of Jeruzalem. The film will continue its festival run including a slot at Sitges International Film Festival before debuting in the States in February 2019.
Film Synopsis: The Golem follows a woman in a devout Jewish community that is besieged by foreign invaders who believe that the Jews have cursed them with a plague. In order to protect her village, the woman conjures a creature in the visage of her deceased child which turns out to be more dangerous than she ever imagined.
The Golem was directed by Doron and Yoav Paz (Jeruzalem), written by Ariel Cohen, produced by Shalom Eisenbach, executive produced by Patrick Ewald (Redcon-1) and Shaked Berenson (Turbo Kid). The film stars Ishai Golen (Prisoners of War) and Hani Furstenberg (The Loneliest Planet).
