Today on VOD: JeruZalem and Martyrs


The big horror release this weekend is William Brent Bell’s creepy doll flick The Boy, which stars Lauren Cohan (“The Walking Dead”) as a woman tasked with babysitting, well, a super creepy doll. But it’s not the only horror option that was unleashed today. Read on for your VOD update!

First up, Epic Pictures Releasing put the award-winning Israeli horror film JeruZalem (review) up for streaming on digital platforms today. Directed by Doron Paz and Yoav Paz, the film is shot from the POV of a Google Glass headset worn by the main character and was filmed in Jerusalem.

JeruZalem follows Rachel (played by “Jane the Virgin” star Yael Grobglas) and her friend Sarah (Danielle Jadelyn), two American girls on vacation in Jerusalem. The two follow Kevin (Yon Tumarkin), a mysterious and handsome anthropology student, into the heart of the Old City. The party is cut short when a biblical prophecy comes to pass on the night of Yom Kippur and Jerusalem’s gate to hell is opened, releasing an epic apocalypse. Trapped between the ancient walls of the holy city, the trio must survive long enough to find a way out as the fury of hell is unleashed upon them.


Also out today, via Anchor Bay, is the American remake of Martyrs (review), directed by Kevin and Michael Goetz. It’s available in limited theaters and on Digital HD this weekend, and will arrive on DVD, Blu-ray, and all VOD outlets February 2nd. The film stars Bailey Noble and Troian Bellisario.

Ten-year-old Lucie flees from the isolated warehouse where she has been held prisoner. Deeply traumatized, she is plagued by awful night terrors at the orphanage that takes her in. Her only comfort comes from Anna, a girl her own age. Nearly a decade later and still haunted by demons, Lucie finally tracks down the family that tortured her. As she and Anna move closer to the agonizing truth, they find themselves trapped in a nightmare – if they cannot escape, a martyr’s fate awaits them…
