JeruZalem (2015)

8e2d1-mv5bmtc2mju2ody3m15bml5banbnxkftztgwmtg5otc3nte2540-_v1_uy268_cr12252c0252c182252c268_al_JeruZalem  (2015): written and directed by Doron and Yoav Paz; starring Danielle Jadelyn (Sarah Pullman), Yael Grobglas (Rachel Klein), Yon Tumarkin (Kevin Reed), and Tom Graziani (Omar): Loopy found-footage film with an anomalous ‘Z’ in the title. Yes, the ‘Z’ is there to cater to World War Z fans. But the monsters in this Israeli production aren’t zombies. Jerusalem itself is really the on-location star of this film.

The two Jewish-American 20-something women who visit Jerusalem on holidays have a good time at first before all Hell breaks loose, though not before the protagonist has taken off her footage-filming iGlasses so that we can get a look at her nekkid. Hoo ha!

The whole thing ends up being a plea for people of different faiths to get along set against a background of apocalyptic destruction. I enjoyed it, especially its non-zombie components. More nudity might have been nice. Recommended.
