Jessabelle Faces Her Ghosts, Both Paranormal and Not
13 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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

"Jessabelle" is directed and edited by Kevin Greutert, who made his name as part of the "Saw" franchise crew (he was involved in all of them, and directed parts six and seven). Keep in mind, though, these may be targeting two different groups of horror fans: "Jessabelle" is a much slower burn than the "Saw" films, and relies much less on the use of shock and gore.

Sarah Snook is relatively new on the scene, her acting career really getting launched in 2009. She is front and center here and makes a strong leading lady with a good look, too. No one should be surprised she has half a dozen projects coming out in the next year.

For much of the film, the eeriness relies on a dead mother with a strong interest in the occult (especially tarot), who communicates to her daughter through old VHS tapes. This is something of a clever way to unravel the plot... somewhat slow, but not quite boring.

For those who want a little something more, the terror picks up in the third act. Things never really get above a PG-13 level of scary, but sometimes that is all you need. For those who loved the "Saw" films and want to see that Greutert was not just a one-trick pony, this is something to check out.
