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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A treasured classic Oct. 13 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I have held this lesser known scarefest close to my heart for several years, ever since seeing it on tv when I was in 6th grade. It is a startling, literate, frightening chiller starring Zohra Lambert, best known for her 1980s Goya Bean Ads.
I love the atmosphere in this film. The low budget leads to a suprisingly realistic feeling. The house itself in the countryside is eerie in itself, with its old fashioned wallpaper and antique furniture.
In this film, the lines between reality and what may be only in Jessica's mind becomes blurred. The conspiracy elements, the love triangle, the strange whispered voiceovers, and most of all the sight of Emily in that wedding dress will send chills racing up your spine.
A must have for horror collectors.

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.

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 QUIET COUNTRY GRAVESTONE RUBBING'S Aug. 10 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Our heroine - Zorah Lampert - is "into" that - the gravestone rubbings . . . . YES, another weird tale about "recovering from a breakdown in the country". Yeah right! In this one the wife [Zorah Lampert] is just "slightly a sandwich or two short of a picnic". Husband moves her to the quiet country. Rather a nice of house, with this odd girl who may or may not be a spectre, [she's on the front porch at odd moments - then there's the photo in the trunk in the attic upstairs ....... and that wedding dress]. Remonds one in patches of the later "Ghost Story".
BUT you're never so sure in this one, eventually most of our hero's - except the wife - have band-aids on their necks [no vampires though], and she decides to get away from the folk, who seem to have ventured too close to living dead country.
It does have this peculiar ending too ....... very "pre" "Friday 13th" - no connection at all, but you'll see what I mean about that!
Stylishy squeamish!

4.0 out of 5 stars A classic from the 70s Oct. 9 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I rememeber this movie from the 70s, me and my cousin used to watch it when it would come on TV late at nights. We were only 6 and 8 years old, but it gave us nightmares for weeks. Compared to the flicks you see nowadays, it might seem dated but thats why it rates so high, its not a gore fest, like so many of the younger viewers have come to expect from a horror movie. This was psychological drama, especially the scenes involving the lake. I wont give away any secrets. I know its a bit dated, but I bought it used off the Amazon Marketplace, and I watched it with my teenage son. He had a look on his face that made me remember why I wanted to get this all over again. Definitley worth a watch. One question though, what was up with the hearse? : )
