Cinedigm Makes a Home Video Date with an Open GraveReleased in limited theaters and on VOD outlets a few months back, Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego’s Open Grave (review) is now getting ready to head home, courtesy of Cinedigm. We’ve dug up all the release details for ya today, so read on!

From the Press Release
Featuring genre favorites Sharlto Copley (District 9, Elysium) and Joseph Morgan (“The Originals,” “The Vampire Diaries”), the zombie apocalypse film that takes psycho thrillers in a new direction, Open Grave, awakens on Blu-ray and DVD July 15 from Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) and Tribeca Film. Directed by Gonzalo López-Gallego (Apollo 18), the dark and twisted thrill ride also stars Thomas Kretschmann (Wanted, Resident Evil: Apocalypse), Josie Ho (Contagion), Erin Richards (The Quiet Ones) and Max Wrottesley (“24: Live Another Day”).

A complicated story that pits characters against each other, Open Grave examines how important memory is to a person’s identity by forcing six strangers—stripped of all recollection—to confront their inner demons. While these strangers seek to identify their past, evil demons lurk beneath them, forcing them to fight for survival, even if it means betraying their allies.

Synopsis
A man wakes up in a pit of dead bodies with no memory of who he is or how he got there. Fleeing the scene, he breaks into a nearby house and is met at gunpoint by a group of terrified strangers, all suffering from memory loss. Suspicion gives away to violence as the group starts to piece together clues about their identities, but when they uncover a threat that’s more vicious and hungry than each other, they are forced to figure out what brought them all together—before it’s too late.

    Oy! HANNUKAH THE MOVIE Aims to Get Made After Nearly a Decade

    Published

    on

    This menorah has nothing to do with the story but, c'mon! It's a freaking T-rex menorah!

    As a Jew, seeing holiday-themed horror movies is both a wonderful and bittersweet occasion. I love seeing my friends celebrate the holidays that are near and dear to their hearts but elevated with the viscera, gore, and terror that I so dearly love. But while Christians have films like Black Christmas, Santa’s Slay, Gremlins, Red Christmas, Krampus, etc…, the amount of horror films centered around Jewish holidays is slim to none. Don’t get me wrong here, okay? I’m well aware of population dynamics and, therefore, interest in a given subject/life experience. It’d just be nice to see something like that now and again.

    Oh, but what’s this? Looks like writer/director Eben McGarr is ready to move forward on his near decade long project Hanukkah The Movie, a “TORAH-fying new tale of HORAH!” I get it. Sensible chuckle awarded.

    Obediah Lazarus is the son of Judah Lazarus, the original Hanukkiller. 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.

    The film has supposedly taken care of the majority of pre-production, so they’re now on Indiegogo with the goal to raise $100,000. Not a small amount but certainly not an unachievable goal. If a potato salad Kickstarter that wanted $10 ended up with nearly $56,000, I think this has a chance.
