JESSABELLE REVIEW




Returning to her childhood home in Louisiana to recuperate from a horrific car accident, Jessabelle comes face to face with a long-tormented spirit that has been seeking her return -- and has no intention of letting her escape.

Starring: Sarah Snook, Mark Webber, and Joelle Carter

Directed by: Kevin Greutert

Written by: Robert Ben Garant

  Who wants to see another movie about a ghost haunting a girl? After watching the trailer, "Jessabelle" seems like just that.  However, while there is a ghost haunting a girl, there's a little more to it. There’s a pretty good story to follow if the audience can get past the attempts to scare them.
  Yes, this movie makes several attempts to scare the audience. A lot of the scare attempts happen early on when Jessabelle (Sarah Snook) is trying to get comfortable in her new home. The scares are all right with the best one probably being the bathtub scene. It helps that she’s confined to a wheelchair because it adds some suspense to some of the scenes. After that the movie is kind of creepy with weird stuff happening until it gets to the meat of the story. 
  Hopefully the audience is still engaged with the story after the scare attempts. Call it the twist, pay off, or reveal, the ending might make the audience appreciate what they have watching. The twist is shown in flashback fashion showing the audience everything that has happened has happened for a reason. Some things about the story might be obvious, but it’s the one or two surprising things that the audience might appreciate.
  "Jessabelle" might just seem like another movie at first, but it does present some reasons to give it a chance. There are some scares for those looking to be scared. However, what makes this movie worth watching is following the story, and seeing the twist/reveal happen. Yes, some of the ending is predictable, but those few things that might not be as obvious make it an interesting story. With that, I give this movie 2.5 pools of blood.

Horror Movie Survival Kit

Man Crates is a new company that ships awesome gifts for men in custom wooden crates that he has to open with a crowbar! At Man Crates, it is their mission to end the difficulties that have long been associated with buying gifts for men.  And what does Man Crates have to do with horror? Well, while they have a wide assortment of crates, they also have horror themed ones like their "Zombie Survival Crate." Someone at Man Crates asked me to create my own Horror Movie Survival Kit as part of their Halloween celebration so here we go! Us horror fans know that is usually takes a lot to survive a horror film. A lot of it comes from the person's will to live, and a little luck. Obviously those things don't come in a crate, so lets start by thinking about the kind of horror movies we could end up in. We have zombies, vampires, werewolves, ghosts, aliens, end of the world scenarios, and even sharknados! Even with a crate I'm not sure we could be totally prep
