‘Jeruzalem’ VOD Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Danielle Jadelyn, Yael Grobglas, Yon Tumarkin, Tom Graziani, Fares Hananya, Steven Hilder | Written and Directed by Doron Paz, Yoav Paz

Religion is the perfect breeding ground for horror, you just have to look at the bible for evidence of that… That’s why releasing Jeruzalem around Easter seems so perfect… However, are we tired of the found footage horror? Or does this religious horror film bring something different to the table?

Sarah (Danielle Jadelyn) and Rachel (Yael Grobglas) fly to Israel to party, and have a good time. Finding themselves in the city of Jerusalem everything seems fun at first. When the world around them descends into chaos and it appears a hell of biblical proportions is rising, can they survive?

Found footage films work if the film has a reason for the camera to be placed into the hands of one of the characters. In Jeruzalem the camera

JeruZalem DVD Review

Directors: Yoav Paz & Doron Paz

Cast: Yael Grobglas, Yon Tumarkin, Danielle Jadelyn, Tom Graziani

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 90 minutes

There are three gates to Hell. One in the Desert… One in the Ocean… and one in Jerusalem. It is this third gate that takes centre stage for new found-footage horror JeruZalem.

A couple of carefree American girls Sarah (Jadelyn) and Rachel (Grobglas) are on their way to Tel-Aviv when they meet fellow American, and Indiana Jones wannabe, Kevin (Turmarkin), on the plane and decide to join him on a jaunt to Jerusalem during Yom Kippur. This is just the first in a long line of bad choices that are made during the ninety minute run time. As each decision becomes more idiotic the audience are wrenched ever further from caring about the characters on screen.

Found-footage horror films are ten a penny in this day and age and sadly JeruZalem doesn

Review: Jeruzalem

  • DailyDead
We’re living in an interesting time for horror movies. As the reach of the new global cinema trickles down from the blockbusters to even indie horror, we’re getting films shot in countries and locations that are relatively new to genre films, from the United Arab Emirates (in Tobe Hooper’s long-shelved Djinn) to now JeruZalem, not just made by Israeli filmmakers the Paz Brothers, but actually shot in the titular city itself. It’s a choice that adds both novelty and a sense of history to what is an otherwise overly familiar first-person horror film that’s part zombie movie, part Cloverfield, all disappointing.

Two American girls, Sarah (Danielle Jadelyn) and Rachel (Yael Grobglas) are en route to a vacation in Tel Aviv when they meet Kevin (Yon Tumarkin), who convinces them to accompany him to Jerusalem for good times in the Old City. After a few days of hanging out,

[Review] JeruZalem

Is it coincidence that Google filed a new application to revive Google Glass on December 28th (despite halting production on the prototype in January) just weeks before Israeli-set horror film JeruZalem supplies a 90-minute adventure into Hell through those exact lenses (albeit a pair of fictitious knock-offs)? Yes. It’s most definitely a coincidence. But whether that technology was going to stay dead or be reborn has little bearing on Doron and Yoav Paz‘s latest work because utilizing it provides an effective gimmick regardless. Doing so is by no means wholly original with the effect proving [Rec] meets Cloverfield meets Unfriended, but sometimes a slight twist is enough to render a maneuver fresh. I actually would’ve liked more electronic “glass” intrusions than were used to set it further apart.

The Paz Brothers open their tale with the apparatus’ acquisition as a gift from Mr. Pullman (Howard Rypp) to his

JeruZalem Review

With such a rich, biblical culture, one has to wonder why more Israeli horror films don’t take advantage of Jerusalem. Scenes essentially set themselves, twisting through vast tunnel systems and maze-like markets, and ideology paints a religious Hell on Earth given the right story.

JeruZalem, a found-footage demon flick from the Paz brothers, understands the advantages of transporting viewers to a creature-filled Jerusalem, and treats the holy land with terrifying respect. Sure, the film may spend most of its time accompanying two Jewish tourists as they soak in the deceptively cheery destination, but when the “Oh Shit” switch gets flipped, Doron and Yoav Paz prove to be invigorating genre filmmakers. A tad generic in practice, but insane nonetheless.

Danielle Jadelyn stars as Sarah, a young vacationer on a quest to Tel Aviv with her best friend Rachel (Yael Grobglas). Right before she leaves, her father gifts her a prescription

Frightfest 2015: ‘Jeruzalem’ Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Danielle Jadelyn, Yael Grobglas, Yon Tumarkin, Tom Graziani, Fares Hananya, Steven Hilder | Written and Directed by Doron Paz, Yoav Paz

Falling firmly in the goofy camp of horror gimmicks is Jeruzalem, an Israel-set shocker that uses the holy city as its canvas and Google Glass as its brush. We’ve seen Pov films before (Rec 2, Enter the Void), but don’t just get to see and hear young American Sarah’s get-away vacation of a lifetime – we get to see the Facebook profiles of everyone she meets, too. Including augmented reality will almost definitely date the film, but it also gives the benefit of lightning-fast exposition; we learn key characters’ names as soon as they appear onscreen along with a snapshot of their personality. It does take something away from the natural character development you might otherwise expect, though a film like Jeruzalem likely wouldn’t have a lot

Jeruzalem review [FrightFest 2015]: “A tense and often scary film”

Jeruzalem review: Exciting and overwhelming, but also nerve-wracking and cruel. Jeruzalem review

Director: Doran Paz, Yoav Paz

Cast: Tom Graziani, Yael Grobglas, Danielle Jadelyn, Yon Tumarkin

Certificate: Tbd

Running Time: 87 Minutes

Synopsis: Three American tourists are trapped in Jerusalem during an apocalyptic event.

Once again horror finds itself at the found footage door. Most ideas may seem to be exhausted, and while it’s true that JeruZalem is merely rehashing and revisiting ideas that have been done before, it also does it all very well and has a few tricks up its sleeves. Directed by the Paz borthers, Doran and Yoav, this Isralian horror uses a couple of American tourists to both explore Jerusalem, as well as helping to create a more accessible horror for big audiences. So, we have zombies, found footage, American tourists; is there anything new to be found here? Thankfully, there is.
