Although the film is set in Louisiana, filming took place in Wilmington, North Carolina because an appropriate place for filming couldn't be found. See more »
When her father goes to burn the tapes he pours on gasoline. gasoline can soften and ruin some plastics. When the tapes are recovered from the trash it would be surprising they were playable. See more »

Returning to her childhood home in Louisiana to recuperate from a horrific car accident (which left her unborn child and fiancé dead) 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.The action of "Jessabelle" takes place in backwoods bayou of Louisiana.The film was directed by Kevin Greutert of "Saw VI" and "Saw 3D" fame.The storyline is quite interesting and captivating and the voodoo imagery is quite spooky.Unfortunately long black haired female spirits in the vein of "Ringu" are too routine to be seriously scary.I must say that I quite enjoyed final twist,though.6 bayou ghosts out of 10.
