American Horror Classics Inspire Upcoming Israeli Genre Film

cannonfodder-1000x500Screen Daily reports filmmaker Eitan Gafny will embark on another horror film entitled Children of the Fall. He previously helmed Israel’s zombie film Cannon Fodder.

According to the outlet: 

The film, entitled Children on the Fall, revolves around young American woman, Rachel Strode, who is working as a volunteer on a kibbutz in the lead-up to the war, in which Syria and Egypt launched a surprise attack on Israel on the holiest day in Judaism.

She is surprised to be treated with suspicion by the local kibbutz members who do not seem to like strangers. On the night of Yom Kippur, the holiday celebrations take a menacing and bloody turn and Rachel has to fight for her life.

It is said to be inspired by Halloween and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Gafny tells SD that it is part horror film, part drama. Shooting begins this fall.

Cannon Fodder has been picked up for a few territories and is awaiting a U.S. release.
