General information

Rated 3 out of 5

“The Vigil” is a supernatural horror film released in 2019, directed by Keith Thomas. It follows the story of a young man named Yakov, a former Orthodox Jewish member, who reluctantly agrees to serve as a “shomer” (a watchman) for a recently deceased Holocaust survivor in a Hasidic community.

As the night progresses, Yakov finds himself trapped in a haunting and terrifying experience. He confronts his own traumatic past while facing malevolent supernatural forces that threaten his sanity and well-being.

“The Vigil” received generally positive reviews from critics. The movie’s atmospheric tension and unique cultural perspective were often praised. It effectively combines psychological horror with religious and supernatural elements, offering a fresh take on the genre. The performance of the lead actor, Dave Davis, was also praised for his portrayal of Yakov.

However, some critics found the pacing to be slow at times, and they desired more exploration of certain themes. Despite these minor criticisms, “The Vigil” is generally regarded as a well-crafted horror film that offers a chilling and thought-provoking experience.

Please note that personal opinions on movies can vary, and it’s always a good idea to watch the film yourself to form your own judgment.
