I feel like it’s time to show some love to one of my most very treasured classic horror films of the 1970s, a film that I’ve placed within my top 25 best horror films of all time. I’m talking about the atmospheric and illusory!
Let’s Scare Jessica to Death (1971) Starring Zohra Lampert
I’ll be covering this chilling gem in the next week and have decided to couple it with another rare oddity of the obscurely horrific 70s genre that is quite brutal and I feel works well as a companion piece. Starring Silver Screen beauty, Jeanne Crain in The Night God Screamed (1971).
So keep your genre fan eye’s peeled for my upcoming-
Let’s Scare Jessica To Death (1971) & The Night God Screamed (1971)- Leave Your Faith, Fear and Sanity at the Water’s Edge.
See ya at the water’s edge-MG

Can’t wait to read your review. Let’s Scare Jessica To Death really is a great 70s horror flick whose low-budget and lack of polish works in its favor. Very atmospheric. I’ve never seen The Night God Screamed, but from the title alone it sounds awesome!
Thank you Stephen, I hope to do a nice job covering both films. You are so right that it’s the lack of polish that makes Jessica work so well. It’s so unselfconscious that it becomes high are without trying. The Night God Screamed is not in the same league, but it’s got some eerie, brutal and a strange atmosphere that makes it worthy of writing about it. I hope you get to see it, and let me know what you think. -Joey MG
