Jessica’s Room: A Review


Director: Erik J. Knight

Starring: Erik Knight, Deacon Ledges, James Warnock, Allison King, David Jite, James Fowler, and John Demitri

Now this is what Indie Horror is about! It’s not about the budget, it’s about the presentation.

The film is about a haunted(or possessed) house where a girl named Jessica Owens murdered her parents and a couple other adults. When ghost hunter John Street dies in the house, he close friend Sevin gathers a small group to investigate Street’s death. You have Melanie, Eddie, Mark, and Steve that make up his rag-tag group. Melanie is the one who doesn’t want to be there, Eddie is Sevin’s support, and then there’s Mark and Steve who are the comic relief to the film.

This film was made on a $5,000! It’s also important to add that Mr. Knight knew absolutely nothing about film making. That being said, this was a great start! Like I said, this is what Indie Horror is all about. While watching this on youtube, I couldn’t help but frown at the comments. Many viewer complained about the acting…IT’S A $5,000 BUDGET! You’re not going to find Jennifer Garner or Brad Pitt anywhere. Honestly I thought that the amateur acting was charming.

Now the effect were what kept me hooked. Scared the shit out of me! Not in a bad way where I won’t sleep, but in the best way where I’m like “holy crap! This is awesome!” I’m definitely going to recommend this to all my friends.
