Exclusive: Epic Pictures' Award-winning 'Jeruzalem' U.S. Premiere Slated for August 23rd


Epic Pictures Group Co-Founders Patrick Ewald and Shaked Berenson have accepted Wizard World Chicago’s respected closing night invitation for their
highly anticipated, award-winning horror film, Jeruzalem.” The Paz
Brothers-helmed project will have its U.S. premiere at Bruce Campbell’s Horror Film Festival on August 23rd at the giant Wizard World
Comic Con Chicago. Winner of the Audience Award and Best Editing Awards at the recent 32nd Jerusalem
International Film Festival, Jeruzalem” is expected to play to an SRO audience
at the Muvico Theatre.

Jeruzalem” is directed by Doron & Yoav Paz (TIFF and Berlinale’s “Phobidilia”) and stars breakout actress Yael Grobglas  (“Jane the Virign,” “Reign,” Rabies”), Yon Tumarkin (Berlinale’s Panorama Award-winner “Rock Ba-Casba,” TV’s “Split”) and Tom Graziani (“A Place in Heaven”). The chilling story follows two American
girls on vacation who join a mysterious and handsome anthropology student on a trip to Jerusalem. The party is cut short when the trio is caught in the
middle of a biblical apocalypse. Trapped between the ancient walls of the holy city, the three travelers must survive long enough to find a way out as the
fury of hell is unleashed upon them.
