The Offering trailer: Nick Blood, Emm Wiseman horror film gets January theatrical release

At the start of 2021, we heard that filming was underway on A Night of Horror: Nightmare Radio director Oliver Park’s horror thriller Abyzou, which was said to be “loosely based on a Jewish folk tale”. Five months ago, it was announced that Decal had picked up the U.S. distribution rights to the Millennium Media production and were planning to give the film a theatrical release later this year. Now we know exactly when Decal will be releasing the film – and it’s not going to be before the end of this year, but it’s not too far off. Abyzou, which is now going by the less unique title The Offering, will be reaching theatres in 20+ US Markets on January 13th. It will be available on VOD the same day. In anticipation of this release, a trailer for The Offering has arrived online and can be seen in the embed above.

Scripted by Hank Hoffman, who crafted the story with Millenium’s Jonathan Yunger, The Offering has the following synopsis: The son of a Jewish funeral director returns home, in hopes of reconciling with his orthodox father, with his pregnant wife in tow. But his intentions are put to the test when the family morgue receives the body of a mysterious corpse containing an ancient entity with a sinister plan for his unborn child.

Here’s another synopsis: In the wake of a young Jewish girl’s disappearance, the son of a Hasidic funeral director returns home with his pregnant wife in hopes of reconciling with his father. Little do they know that directly beneath them in the family morgue, an ancient evil with sinister plans for the unborn child lurks inside a mysterious corpse.

The film stars Paul Kaye (Game of Thrones), Nick Blood (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Emm Wiseman (Winchester), Allan Corduner (Homeland), Daniel Ben Zenou (Skins), and Jodie Jacobs (The West End’s Rock of Ages). The Offering was produced by Hoffman, Yunger, Jeffrey Greenstein, Les Weldon, Sam Schulte, and Yariv Lerner of Millennium Media, with the company’s Avi Lerner, Trevor Short, Boaz Davidson, and Tanner Mobley serving as executive producers.
