Description

Yakov, who recently left his Hasidic community, is low on cash. When his former rabbi asks offers asks him to be an overnight shomer, and fulfill the practice of watching over the body of a deceased community member, he reluctantly accepts. Shortly after arriving at the recently departed's dilapidated house to sit the vigil, Yakov begins to realize that something is very, very wrong. Steeped in ancient Jewish lore and demonology, The Vigil  is a supernatural horror film set over the course of a single evening in Brooklyn's Hasidic Borough Park neighborhood
