| Very creepy horror gem.
Jessica(Zohra Lampert),her husband and their friend start a new life in the country,but Jessica,who has a history off mental illness,starts to believe the area is haunted and grows suspicious of the young woman who has joined them at their house..."Let's Scare Jessica to Death" is an excellent low-budget horror film loaded with eerie atmosphere of rising paranoia.Zohra Lampert does a terrific job showing us Jessica's growing desperation and there are some fairly gruesome gore effects at the end.The photography is gritty and the climax is extremely haunting.The viewer is never sure whether Jessica is really onto something sinister,or whether she's just going insane.There are some subtle touches of eeriness:Jessica's husband drives a hearse,and she decorates their new home with tracings she made from a local cemetery.So if you are a fan of old-fashioned spooky horror films give this overlooked gem a look.9 out of 10.
