A notable amount of celebrity deaths occurring within a relatively short period of time.
On June 23rd of 2009, Ed McMahon died. In the following days, Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson, Billy Mays, and Gale Storm passed away. This certainly seems like a Hollycaust.

Have you been keeping up with the news lately? Celebrities have been dropping like flies! It's the Hollycaust!

(n) Combining the terms Hollywood and Holocaust, a Hollycaust is a film that takes place during the Holocaust and consists mostly of violent depictions of horrific Holocaust events, but fails to deliver a unique and proper storyline. Hollycaust films feel the need to spend a bulk of the film reiterating the abject horror that most people are familiar with instead of creating a unique piece of art with the Holocaust as a horrific setting instead of a crutch for the storyline.
Steven: Did you see that movie which the guy that was in Predators won an Oscar for?
Roberto: Yeah, I really liked the later parts and it was a decent movie, but the first half of it felt like a Hollycaust.
