DREAD Exclusive: Go Behind-the-Scenes Into the Making of THE GOLEM

This part Tuesday marked the release of The Golem, the first in our line of DREAD Originals. Directed by The Paz Brothers (JeruZalem), the film is a period folk horror delight that is, “…filled with inventive and evocative moments, particularly those grounded in the truly scary aspects of Jewish history,” per Jerusalem Post’s Hannah Brown.

To celebrate the release, we’re here to bring you into the making of the film with two exclusive behind-the-scenes videos. The first clip shows how the VFX by Dan Sachar of the film were done, elevating several scenes and adding a lot that you may not have noticed. This clip is not on the Blu-ray or anywhere else, so enjoy!

The second clip goes into Tal Yardeni’s original score, showing scenes of the recording sessions and a brief interview with the composer. This clip appears on the Blu-ray along with a swath of other great special features. Make sure to check it out!

You can order The Golem on Blu-ray and DVD as well as iTunes.

During an outbreak of a deadly plague, a young woman, Hanna, must save her tight-knit Jewish community from invaders. Turning to Jewish mysticism, she conjures a dangerous entity to protect her and her people. However, the powerful creature she summons may be far more evil than anything she could have ever imagined.

Starring in the film are Hani Furstenberg (Hanna), Ishai Golan (Benjamin), Lenny Ravich (Horrovits), Brynie Furstenberg (Perla), and Alexey Tritenko (Vladimir). Written by Ariel Cohen, The Golem was produced by Shalom Eisenbach as well as Shaked Berenson and Patrick Ewald of Epic Pictures Group.
