Storyline

An upstart couple from New Jersey inherit a beautiful $7 million townhouse in NYC's West Village District. Forced to sell the place because of taxes, they move in for a few months to make some renovations. But Jessica begins experiencing strange occurrences in the house: noises from downstairs, a blonde child in a red sweater looking at her from the front window, strange telephone calls in the middle of the night. Instead of being scared off, she embraces it. It's exciting living in a haunted house. Jessica figures out that what she's experienced is an event from the past. Is the house trying to tell her something? Does it hold a terrible secret? She enlists the aid of an eccentric psychic in hopes of solving the mystery. But the psychic insists the house is not haunted. Is Jessica losing her mind? All is revealed on Halloween night, when Jessica, alone in the house, wakes up in a pool of blood that is not her own....

Penny Dreadful....really Isn't
16 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This little film really caught me off guard. I couldn't believe this was a student low budget film. The quality is excellent and very very well made.

The director of this film has a bright future ahead of him and I cant wait to see what else he comes up with. \ Betsy Palmer is wonderful as Trudie the psychic and even though his part isn't a big one it was great to see another Friday veteran Warrington Gillette again after an all too long absence from films.

This film deserves all the attention it can get. Don't miss this one and pay close attention to ALL the details.
