The Vigil

The Vigil ★★

Strong "middle-of-the-day-Horrorthon" vibes, a film with one good idea and a bunch of fodder to stretch it out to an hour and a half. There are signs of something better but all are Blumhoused to death with scary faces in the dark, noises that go boom and a color palette of dried vomit. 5 minutes of expository dialogue, 5 minutes of vaguely dreamy build-up, two seconds of scary thing on screen, rinse and repeat. The fact that everyone is Jewish doesn't really make that anymore exciting.
