This eerie low-budget chiller has recently released mental patient Jessica (Zohra Lampert) moving to a Connecticut farm with her husband and some friends. But a strange girl named Emily is at the farm, too, and it soon becomes obvious that she is somehow related to a young woman who drowned on her wedding day in the 1800s. Is Emily a vampiric ghost? Are the hostile townsfolk all zombies? Or is Jessica losing her mind once again? ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
A promising exercise in weirdness that will have you hanging until the end.
Hancock nails the pure dementia of the situation with scenic settings that feel utterly claustrophobic at all times...
A very mild, very dull mystery with supernatural undertones that's mostly a long, slow buildup for an unsatisfying conclusion of little sense.
Superb title aside, Let's Scare Jessica to Death generally isn't able to live up to its reputation as a hidden gem within the horror genre.
