Halloween scare prank goes to hell in Let’s Scare Julie to Death

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

I don’t think most people know this about me, but one of my favorite horror movies of all-time is LET’S SCARE JESSICA TO DEATH. My first feature flick was actually heavily inspired by the movie and I find it to be a (strange) but quality movie to recommend to the horror fan who has seen it all. 

And it’s with this in mind I’m a bit bothered by the balls it took the filmmakers behind this new film to call it LET’S SCARE JULIE TO DEATH. I mean this has got to be one of the more blatant rip-off titles I’ve heard since GREMLIN.

Anyhow, today we have word that this film is a real thing – and it’s NOT a remake of the classic I mentioned above- but a new teen horror film set to star Isabel May. The movie is described as an indie thriller and it is all set to be written and directed by Jud Cremata.

Interestingly enough, however, is that the plan is for the filmmakers to shoot the film in one continuous, uncut 90-minute shot (ala SILENT HOUSE) telling the story in real time of 

A group of teen girls at a Halloween party who set out to scare the reclusive new neighbor girl next door. The prank turns to terror when they begin to disappear one by one.

May will play the party’s host, who helps plan the scare-prank.

Cremata’s script will be used a blueprint from which performers will improvise, creating a gritty realism. This will serve as his feature film debut, and he is also producing with Mark Wolloff and Blitz Films’ Eryl Cochran and Nick Sarkisoy.

We’ll let you know when we hear more!
