‘Sometimes a prank comes back to kill you.’
Let’s Scare Julie is a 2020 American horror feature film about a group of teen girls who set out to scare their reclusive new neighbour. However, the prank turns to terror when some of them don’t return.
Filmed in real-time on a single camera in one uninterrupted, continuous take, the tension in the film rapidly escalates as the girls’ seemingly harmless pranks start to have life-altering consequences.
Written and directed by Jud Cremata, the Blitz Films production stars Troy Leigh-Anne Johnson, Isabel May, Odessa A’zion, Brooke Sorenson, Jessica Sarah Flaum and Dakota Baccelli. The movie was produced by Cremata alongside Marc Wolloff, Eryl Cochran and Nick Sarkisov.
Emma, (Troy Leigh-Anne Johnson), who recently moved in with her cousin Taylor (Isabel May) after her father’s untimely death, becomes the victim of a prank perpetrated by Taylor’s group of friends: Madison (Odessa A’zion), Jess (Brooke Sorenson) and Paige (Jessica Sarah Flaum).
Wanting to up the ante, the girls hatch a plan to scare Julie, the reclusive girl across the street, who they have never seen and know nothing about. All they know is Julie is alone at her house tonight – a house rumoured to be haunted after a little boy vanished many years ago.
What starts off as a simple plan to have a good laugh quickly escalates as some of the girls don’t come back from Julie’s house. Is it all just a set up for the girls to play an elaborate prank on Emma or are the dark rumours about the house across the street actually true? As more people start to disappear, including Emma’s younger sister Lilly (Dakota Baccelli), the clock is ticking for Emma to figure it out…
Let’s Scare Julie premieres on Digital and On Demand everywhere on October 2, 2020, from Shout! Studios.
