Scared Me To Death
27 December 2002 | by (Houston, Texas) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when I was eleven, and I haven't seen it since. I was absolutely scared out of my wits, now as for the acting- -well it wasn't so bad! Sarah Chalke-who had a small stint as Becky no.2 on the Roseanne show-is very pretty, and a pretty talented actress, I know that the other guy who gave a review for this totally bashed it, but I saw it on T.V one time, and it was good enough for me to go searching about it on IMDB. The Story is basically about a teen age girl named Sarah who is very pretty, but a little strange. She lives with her single parent mother, and moves to a new town where she knows no one and has no friends- -excepting some strange curly headed blond kid-played by Ben Foster from the kid's show Flash Forward ever see it on Disney?-Who has a big crush on her. She likes the hunk in town-Who I think has great eyes if nothing else-played by Christopher Campbell-who just happens to be Neve Campbell's kid brother-Now of course the hunk in town has a super snotty girlfriend who makes fun of the somewhat strange Sarah because she's prettier than she is and her boyfriend is crushing on Sarah. Anyway! There is a serious witch burning legend about a girl that lived in Sarah's house and was accused of being a witch- -thus she was burned! Then as a joke Sarah is wrangled into being the 'Psychic' and some stupid teenage party or carnival, she doesn't have to be wrangled too much seeing as how she's in love with the hunk in town. So Turns out that kid's are being killed, lot's of them, and they die of natural causes--A Heart Attack! They are being scared to death by someone dressed up in a witch's outfit! Is it the dead witch's ghost come back for revenge? Is it Sarah? Is Sarah inhabited by the dead witch's spirit?! WHO WILL DIE NEXT!? Watch this movie! It was made for T.V- -but it is a down right scare-you-to-death, make-your-hair-turn-white! MOVIE! Final words: For a T.V Made flick FIVE STARS!
