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.

Trivia

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 »

Found (Jeruzalem) Footage
1 August 2016 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

I'm not the biggest fan of found footage. But this movie actually has some very fine moments, though most of them come towards the end. There is your typical American student type of vacation seeking characters who are way in over their head. Also doing a lot of things wrong (you know the whole "don't go into that house" thing, where for no apparent reason at all people do actually go in ...).

But then again, if you didn't have characters do stupid things, would we have a movie? Would there be evil that had to be succumbed? Probably not, but how does that help the viewer feeling anything for those characters? That's a tough one to answer and something only you can answer for yourself. If you can overlook the flaws there is a decent horror movie in there somewhere ...
