4. Jeruzalem (2015)

I had the pleasure of catching the world premiere of this at the Fantasia film festival this summer, and though it definitely had it’s problems (mainly, a heck of a lot of very wooden acting), there was enough there to impress me. Jeruzalem begins with two American girls heading on a vacation to Israel when they meet a charming fellow traveler who convinces them to accompany him to the old city of Jerusalem during Yom Kippur. Unfortunately for them, a biblical apocalypse descends upon the city and they all find themselves running for there lives from an assortment of truly terrifying demons from hell.

What’s truly astounding about this film is that the filmmakers Yoav and Doron Paz were able to do guerrilla filmmaking in areas where it’s forbidden to film by utilizing Google Glass. Told entirely from the POV offered by the glasses,


uses the old city as a character in itself, submerging itself in the architecture and winding streets; the result is visually stunning. To top it off, aside from the magnificent use of new technologies, there are some truly frightening scenes in this.
