    Hoop-Tober 2.0: Film #22/31

    The Horror in Question
    I think Let's Scare Jessica to Death is a brilliant title. It mixes terror with an almost child-like innocence and thus creates a perfect horror film title, in my opinion.
    Unfortunatley its title is almost the best thing about Jessica and it isn't even that accurate.
    It starts promisingly enough, almost instantly creating a palpable mood of dread and creepiness with Jessica floating lonely on a boat in the middle of a…

    "Week 1 of the Adapted April Challenge"

    Film 3 of the Top 50 Horror Project
