The Vigil evening in Brooklyn’s Hasidic Borough Park neighborhood is really a supernatural horror film set during the period of a single. Low on funds and having left his insular religious community recently, Yakov reluctantly accepts an offer from his former rabbi and confidante to defend myself against the duty of an overnight “shomer,” fulfilling the Jewish practice of watching on the physical body of a deceased community member. Shortly after coming to the departed’s dilapidated house to sit the vigil recently, Yakov begins to understand that something is quite, very wrong.
The cast for the film includes Dave Davis (The Big Short, The Walking Dead), Malky Goldman (Unorthodox, God of Vengeance), Menashe Lustig (Menashe) and Lynn Cohen (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, The Affair).
“This sequence comes at a pivotal moment in the film, the type of horror movie “turning point” when our main character, Yakov, realizes that the home is inside no more safe to be,” Thomas wrote in a statement to ComingSoon.net. “Even though he’s desperate to obtain Mrs. Litvak to become listed on him in leaving this doomed place, she’s lived there long enough to learn there is absolutely no easy escape…Both Lynn Cohen and Dave Davis submit great, tense performances in this scene, and I especially love the true way Lynn breaks into that sinister yet empathetic smile.”
