WORLD PREMIERE - The first original movie for ‘Dread Central Presents’ is a stunning reimagining of the mystical Jewish legend and the second feature from the JERUZALEM directing duo, the Paz brothers. Set in Lithuania, 1673, conflicted Hanna (superb Hani Furstenberg) conjures up a dangerous entity using Kabbalah magic to protect her isolated, tight-knit community under attack from both the plague and deadly evil invaders. But the creature she moulds out of mud echoes her tragic past and becomes so connected to its creator that she can’t see what a heartless monster has been fashioned from abject fear and desperate loathing.
