Sometimes a prank comes back to kill you...
...Shout! Studios has released a trailer for writer/director Jud Cremata's Let's Scare Julie, a prank revenge film shot in one, continuous take!
In Let's Scare Julie (likely inspired by the classic, Let's Scare Jessica to Death):
Emma, who recently moved in with her cousin Taylor after her father’s untimely death, becomes the victim of a prank perpetrated by Taylor’s group of friends: Madison, Jess and Paige.
Wanting to up the ante, the girls hatch a plan to scare Julie, the reclusive girl across the street, who they have never seen and know nothing about. All they know is Julie is alone at her house tonight - a house rumored to be haunted after a little boy vanished many years ago.
What starts off as a simple plan to have a good laugh quickly escalates as some of the girls don’t come back from Julie’s house. Is it all just a set up for the girls to play an elaborate prank on Emma or are the dark rumors about the house across the street actually true? As more people start to disappear, including Emma’s younger sister Lilly, the clock is ticking for Emma to figure it out.
The film stars Troy Leigh-Anne Johnson (Netflix’s On My Block), Isabel May (Netflix’s Alexa & Katie), Odessa A’zion (CBS’s Fam), Brooke Sorenson (Netflix’s Mr. Iglesias), Jessica Sarah Flaum (The Tale) and Dakota Baccelli (NBC’s This is Us).
Let’s Scare Julie premieres in Home Theaters on Digital and On Demand everywhere October 2nd from Shout! Studios.
