The acclaimed supernatural Blumhouse horror, THE VIGIL, the startling debut feature from director Keith Thomas, is available to own now on DVD and Digital from Vertigo Films.
The film stars Dave Davis, Menashe Lustig, Malky Goldman, Lynn Cohen and Fred Melamed.
THE VIGIL is set over the course of a long, dark night in Brooklyn’s Hassidic “Boro” Park neighbourhood, following Yakov (Davis), a former Hassid, who has lost his faith, and isn’t eager to go back to the insular religious community he only recently fled.
But when Reb Shulem (Lustig), a rabbi and confidante, approaches Yakov and offers to pay him to be the shomer (watching over the dead body of a community member) for a recently deceased Holocaust survivor, he reluctantly accepts the job.
Shortly after arriving at the dilapidated house, Yakov realises that something is very, very wrong. This will not be a quiet vigil.
THE VIGIL is produced by J. D. Lifshitz & Raphael Margules of BoulderLight Pictures, and Adam Margules of Angry Adam Productions.
