Let’s Scare Jessica to Death (1971)

Let’s Scare Jessica to Death is a low budget horror movie that keeps you guessing. It’s in the same vein of movies like The Haunting or even Jacob’s Ladder, in that you’re never quite sure what’s going on. With the main characters sanity thrown into question early on you feel much like Jessica, not knowing whether or not the events really happened or if it’s all just a product of her head.

Kolobos (1999)

Kyra and four new acquaintances answer an ad in the newspaper looking for potential participants (“freeloaders”) in some sort of documentary style experiment that will film all of their interactions while living together. So, it’s basically The Real World before all that crap got popular. What Kyra’s fellow lodgers don’t know is that she has some documented mental issues that she’s been working through and even has even been taking some medications for them. But whatever specter she may have hovering over her mental state seems rather mute when the posh residence they’re staying at goes into lock-down mode, trapping them inside with a bunch of laser tripped booby traps and a dark, faceless figure that seems intent on killing them one by one.

New Year’s Evil (1980)

So not too long ago I stayed up extra late (or really early depending on how you look at it) to watch one of TCM’s late night/early morning showings. I’ve noticed on Fridays that after the Underground is over they usually show another movie very similar to the first. So after catching the end of […]

You Better Watch Out (1980)

(AKA Christmas Evil, AKA Terror in Toyland) The story opens on a young boy named Harry on Christmas Eve. After Harry tells his younger brother about Santa (via a very heart warming ‘memory sequence’), his brother tells him he doesn’t believe in Santa, so Harry goes downstairs (to prove him wrong I guess) and sees […]

Renowned herpetologist, Horace Adderson, is convinced he’s found a cure for his wife’s (unstated) mental illness. For weeks he’s been injecting her with cobra venom. By all accounts it seems to be working. But his wife is worried about the unstudied side-effects such injections might have on their unborn child. Horace waves off her concerns, […]
