‘The dead are back for life’
Jessabelle is a 2014 American supernatural horror feature film directed by Kevin Greutert from a screenplay by Ben Garant. The movie stars Sarah Snook, Mark Webber, Joelle Carter, David Andrews, Amber Stevens and Ana de la Reguera.
After losing her fiancé in a car accident, grief-stricken Jessie (Sarah Snook) retreats to her father’s run down Louisiana mansion, where she finds a gift from her long dead mother, and a spirit intent on killing her…
“Considering all the potential for sinister business clouded by deceptive characters, Jessabelle is surprisingly uneventful, stumbling to an unsatisfying ending that teases complexity and twists, but mostly triggers unenthused shrugs.” Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com
“The characters aren’t so much characters, but pieces that simply exist to fill in the spaces when called upon. Every element exists in a strict vacuum from the characters, to the plot, to the setting. Once you’ve seen it, what’s there left to take in?” Brandon C. Sites
“Undemanding at only 83 minutes, Jessabelle is a good old-fashioned alone-in-the-dark ghost story highlighted by talented performers, rich cinematography, and a screenplay built on clever surprises and tautly delivered chills.” Ian Sedensky, Culture Crypt
Jessabelle was released by Lionsgate on November 7, 2014.
The film was temporarily known as Ghosts.
