Product Details

Product Description

Jessica goes to the Connecticut countryside for some rest following her release from an institution where she has just recovered from a nervous breakdown. She arrives with her husband and friend, but the three find little relaxation. Instead, they become entangled in a creepy tale of the supernatural which involves murder, an attempted drowning, a séance, disappearing bodies, vampires and constant torment for Jessica. Her marriage is strained, she hears voices, and she can't escape the mental turbulence which haunts her - for there really is something after Jessica.

4.0 out of 5 stars Scare her to death Feb. 22 2007
"Let's Scare Jessica to Death" is a bona fide cult horror gem -- not a lot of people have seen it, it's smarter than your average death'n'gore movie, and it leaves you wondering just what the heck is going on here.

In particular, it makes you wonder if the "Jessica" of the title is raving mad, or if a vampire really is making the rounds. The movie is blessed with wonderfully eerie music and camerawork, but it's the blurred line between madness and the supernatural that makes it stand out like a dark gem.

Jessica (Zohra Lampert) has just been released from a mental hospital, and she and her husband Duncan (Barton Heyman) want to make a fresh start on a rural farm, with pal Woody (Kevin O'Connor) helping out. But when they arrive at their new home, they find a nomadic hippie girl living in the attic. At Jessica's insistence, Emily (Mariclare Costello) agrees to stay with them awhile.

But strange things are happening -- the townspeople are very hostile towards the newcomers, and Emily is being trailed by a mysterious girl in a white gown. What's worse, all the men -- including Woody and Duncan -- seem to be somehow under Emily's spell. Is Jessica going insane again -- or is there a vampire controlling this island?

One of the best things a horror movie can do is leave you wondering. "Let's Scare Jessica to Death" does just that. By the finale, it leaves us wondering if this is a terrifying reality, or the paranoid delusions of a woman who feels threatened by an attractive newcomer, and just made up this whole thing about her being an evil seductive vampire.

A clever plot alone isn't enough to guarantee success, though.

2.0 out of 5 stars Oh, Good. When are you going to start? Jan. 1 2003
By Gary
Format:VHS Tape
More haunted house fun as a group of people are haunted by the eerie presence of Ingmar Bergman. 'Hour of the Wolf' had been released something like three years before and I suspect the director was a fan. British viewers of a certain age may also be minded of those BBC 'Ghost Story For Christmas' adaptions of MR James's stories. Unfortunately, the director has neither the budget or sureness with actors to pull of his warped premise. Despite some risible moments and the unnecessary early flyposting of the plot at an antique dealers, any film that pokes fun at the vulnerability of the hippy philosophy can't be all bad.
(Undead, and can't cross running water? Grab a snorkel! Okay, so it's cheating but why should you care, oh deceased one?)

3.0 out of 5 stars Well Made Movie, Which is a Mixed Bag at Best. May 1 2002
Format:VHS Tape
When a young Woman by the name of Jessica (Zohra Lambert), Who just got out of a Mental Hospital, now she's starting a new life with her Husband (Barton Heyman) and their Friend (Kevin O'Connor) are moving to a quiet small town. When they arrived in thier new Home, they meet a young mysterious attractive Woman (Mariclare Costello), now later-decide to let Her to live with them. But Jessica finds out slowly that the Town's People are not, what they seem to be, she also hear thought in her Mind, that could her imagination or the Voices are really speaking to her and this Mysterious Woman is might be a Vampire, who could walk in the Daylight.
Directed by John Hancock (Prancer, Weeds) made a Eerie, Clever, Supernatural Film, which is Marred by the last Third of the Movie. Which becomes Unsatifiying but It`s help by a Somewhat Good Premise, Scary Music Score and a Good Acting by the Cast. Screen-Writers:Lee Kalchiem and Ralph Rose did some fine Work with the Story. It does have some Creepy Moments and a few Surprises in the Movie. The film is a Grainy, Bleak and sometimes Absurd also. The Film might be Too Disjointed to Some but it`s Quite Well Done at the Horror Gerne, which is Surprisngly Intelligent and Dark but Again, this Movie is Not for All. Originally Rated PG but It`s has Re-Rated for PG-13. Grade:B.

3.0 out of 5 stars Creepy chiller is well worth your time... Dec 9 2003
Format:VHS Tape
As many reviewers have stated, I saw this film as a child on late-night TV and it deeply disturbed me. Yes, I had to sleep with the light on for many nights afterwards. And yes, I saw this movie again recently and it was not as scary as originally imagined. This is not to say the 1971 dream-like thriller "Let's Scare Jessica To Death" is a mediocre horror film. In fact, this film may have been more influential than most realize.
Horror master Stephen King has gone on record as stating this is one of his favorite horror films from this period. It must be noted the film's story is very similar to King's own novel "Salem's Lot," released seveal years later. "Let's Scare Jessica To Death" also bears an uncanny resemblance to the 1975 classic "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre." And let's not forget the very John Carpenter-esque synthesizer musical score (yes, this movie pre-dates Carpenter too), which has much to do with why this film is so unsettling.
Jessica (very well played by Zohra Lampert) has just been released from the asylum after a nervous breakdown. Her husband (Barton Heyman, who played the immortal Dr. Klein in "The Exorcist") has purchased an old house in the country where they hope to relocate and start life anew. A hippie best friend comes along for the ride and naturally, the youthful trio drive through the country in a Hearse with the word "Peace" painted on the side - well, this is 1971. The house is sinister, to say the least, with a dark past to include the legend of a ghost/vampire walking its grounds. I will not give away the rest of the tale, suffice to say the local town nor the characters are what they seem. The film's dream-like quality is further enhanced by a surpise ending left open to interpretation.

Crrreeeeepy. If you want to be scared by a movie, rent it. If you want to be scared by moving pictures of gore, go to your nearest butcher with a digital camera.
