1.0 out of 5 stars Who can explain the good reviews for this turkey?, October 4, 2010
This review is from: Let's Scare Jessica to Death (DVD)
Watched this last night with a group of die-hard film buffs, and we all though it was awful. I know this is not a new or particularly original jab, but it really does deserve the title LET'S BORE JESSICA TO DEATH!

Unlike some of the few who saw this for what it is, I don't think the actors can be blamed - NO ONE could have made the script work. They also get no help from the lousy directing and terrible score.

There are a few moments of good atmosphere thanks mostly to the photography, but it is not enough.

Not NEARLY enough.

Do yourself a favor: clean out a neglected desk drawer, go through your fridges meat and cheese bin, balance your checkbook.

Any of these is scarier, and ultimately more rewarding and productive than watching this one.

"Who can explain...a group of die-hard film buffs" with both a lack of imagination and an unwillingness to go without a severed head, dripping entrails or a heavy metal soundtrack for 89 minutes...? Gosh, I feel so duped that I wasn't one of the few who saw this film: "for what it is." Guess I better go take an "ultimately more rewarding...jab" at the "fridge..."

There's no accounting for taste of course, but I think that this is really a great movie and a significant work of pre-Texas Chainsaw horror. The atmosphere, the cinemaphotography, and the score are all great. I can't believe that anyone would criticize the score of this film; it is very creative and reminds me of the work that Joseph LeDuca did for the first Evil Dead. This movie is a real work of art.
