Format: DVD
An understated and dreamlike film, Let's Scare Jessica to Death is a refreshing change to the full-on, no-holds-barred tone of much modern horror. Beautifully filmed and dripping with atmosphere, watching this is a lot like taking an uneasy stroll through someone's very personal nightmare. Much is left unexplained at the end (your imagination is required to fill in some of the gaps - something that appears to be anathema to a lot of modern viewers, sad to say), but this simply adds to the haunting quality of the piece. Is this a 'psychological' horror film, or a full-blown ghost story? All the internal evidence seems to suggest that the supernatural threat that Jessica perceives is very real indeed. It's the fact that OTHER people think she is having breakdown that makes her all the more vulnerable. There are some wonderfully creepy moments here - the whispering in the shadows of the room where a séance is taking place; the dead girl in the wedding dress floating to the surface of the lake; the fluttering gravestone rubbings on Jessica's wall; the scene where the scarred and sinister townsfolk shamble into her room. Overlooked for far too long, it's great to see this excellent and genuinely eerie film finally getting an official DVD release, although some extras would have been nice.

Creepy haunting and prophetic, these are the words best used to describe this 1971 pro-to horror movie. The soundtrack is the best place to begin as it exemplifies what would by the mid nineteen eighties have become the all too familiar and clichéd horror synthesizer score. This film uses its score very well indeed, and you'll probably feel like pinching yourself to remained you of the fact that this movie was made in 1971, a good three years before Texas Chainsaw Massacre, which the film reminds one of due to the rural agricultural setting.
Let's Scare Jessica To Death, presents a nuanced psychological take on Hitchcock's masterful Psycho made just ten years prior, and deals with relapsed female madness.
I was struck by the haunting onlookers climax with echoes of Night Of The Living Dead whilst pre-empting David Cronenberg's seminal Shivers.
With a fair amount of unpleasant bloodletting for those who need it, myself included, you will not be disappointed by this creepy gem. Now all I ask is can we have Blood and Lace also from 1971 and only PG.
DVD picture quality is mostly great through-out, hard to believe you are watching a thirty five year old movie.
No extras at all but the cover art work are very pleasing.
As a multi region owning DVD player I had a few problems loading my disc, but after six attempts the disc finally loaded without playback problems. I have tried to load the disc again and after just two attempts it worked fine, so just a slight warning to those like me buying from overseas.

A somewhat oblique 70s `vampire' piece (in the loosest and least explicit sense possible), `Let's Scare Jessica To Death' really functions best as a jittery study of mental degeneration, during the course of which the viewer is never totally clear on the reality of the situation. The film tells the story of fragile, gamine Jessica, who, following a six-month spell in a New York asylum for undisclosed mental illness, likely of a schizophrenic variety, moves out to the country with her musician husband Doug and hippy friend Woody (who bears an odd resemblance to Ben Stiller, through a 1970s filter) to get back in touch with nature and manage an orchard. Unfortunately, the house into which the trio move is a) occupied by an emotionally manipulative ginger squatter called Emily, b) near a town full of judgemental rednecks who'd have been at home in `Easy Rider' and c) former home to a family whose daughter allegedly drowned in the nearby lake but is also reputed to exist as a vampire. As death-obsessed Jessica fights against the voices in her head and her own increasing suspicions regarding her husband's relationship with Emily, who bears an odd similarity to the drowned vampire girl, she starts to become convinced of murderous and possibly supernatural shenanigans in the locale, in the face of which she can only flee...

To best appreciate `Let's Scare Jessica Death', you probably need to disconnect the rational mind and simply wallow in the depiction of Jessica's clearly unstable take on events. The film is no less schizophrenic than Jessica, almost wilfully denying the viewer any explanation for what is happening, an approach that naturally leans one towards a psychological interpretation. On the minus side, the film is undisputedly slow-moving and seldom less than obtuse.

I watched this a few months ago alone in the middle of the darkest night and was surprised how spooky this little unknown movie was. The last time I felt the same was years ago when I first watched another older gem, The Changeling (1980). Recommended!

Jessica (Zorha Lampert?),having just been released from a mental institution having had a serious nervous breakdown heads for New England and recovery with her husband(played by Barton Heyman?) and their good friend (played by Kevin O'Connor?).They travel by HEARSE with Jessica riding in the rear.(and we are expected to believe this would help to somehow settle what would naturally be an "on-edge mind"?) On the way they stop and she does what all "normal" people do,trace-over gravestones for Jessica to hang the pictures in their bedroom? While here she believes she sees a childs figure and hears voices etc,the usual symptoms of a relapse and this continues throughout the film.Add to this the mysterious female waiting for them at their new place of abode,the usual weirdo townsfolk and the music which flows through the film accompanying every scene like a river running non-stop and a few people who apparently have their throat cut but come back to life. And ask yourself just why she follows DIRECTLY behind a tractor she KNOWS is spraying trees with insecticide? This film was made in 1971 and I really was surprised to see that anyone connected to it worked again after it was released, it was as bad as that?
