American best friends Rachel Klein and Sarah Pullman travel to Tel Aviv to have fun. On the flight, they meet Kevin Reed, who invites them to Jerusalem. They accept and check into a hostel owned by Omar. Sarah and Rachel date Kevin and Omar respectively, and they go to a nightclub together. When they return to the hostel, they find that Jerusalem is under siege, a curfew has been imposed, and no one can leave, as they're under attack by demons.Written by

The Yom Kippur war started on October 6th, 1973. It is still an open wound in collective Israeli memory, This fact adds a certain dramatic effect to the war against the demons depicted in the climax of the movie, which also takes place during Yom Kippur. See more »

Jeruzalem is a kind of found footage flick were things go awfully wrong when the underworld breaks free in Jeruzalem. It reminded me of flicks like Cloverfield (2008) and As Above So Below (2014).
It take a while before the horror comes in so before that we do follow two girls who are on a trip together but do meet a guy and together they decide to go to Jerusalem. So the first part we do see them going out and visit Jerusalem. Of course they are out for sex and things all do work out fine until two fighterplanes are flying over Jerusalem and do drop a bomb.
From that point things go wrong for the gang. Is it gory, not really it's pure suspense in a creepy atmosphere. It's all filmed from the smartglasses from one of the girls. When the demons do attack it's all a bit blurry and shaky but for me it did work out fine. But I can understand that some people aren't into those kind of horrors.
A bit too much of sightseeing and partying going on in the beginning but once the attack starts it's okay. Maybe for some the Nephilim are a bit over the top but luckily they aren't the main thing.
Worth seeing if you are into found footage flicks.
