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....

great ending!
4 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Penny Dreadful is an award winning short film that boasts an impressive cast of horror movie veterans including Betsy Palmer (Friday the 13th) Warrington Gillette (Jason from Friday the 13th Part 2), Tina (Witchouse 3, The Thirsting) Krause and Peter (Eyes of a Stranger) Dupre. Bloody-Disgusting calls it "..well acted, well paced and (has) a great ending!" The plot goes something like this: Jessica and David Clausen (Emily Vacchiano and Sebastian LaCause) are an upstart couple who come face to face with the supernatural after inheriting a beautiful brownstone townhouse in New York City's West Village District. Determined to unearth the dark secrets of the house, Jessica descends into a world of madness and terror and finds there is much more than meets the eye in her new home. What is the secret? I'll never tell.
