Paranormal Activity producers introduce you to Jessabelle in first trailer


The producers who brought you Paranormal Activity and Insidious would like to introduce you to the new girl on the horror scene.

Jessabelle is the title of the latest supernatural exercise from Blumhouse Productions, the terror specialists behind the aforementioned franchises as well as films like The Purge and Oculus

Jessabelle is also the name of the movie's central character, played by Sarah Snook, who returns to her childhood home in Louisiana to recuperate from a terrible accident and soons finds herself haunted by a malevolent spirit hidden in the house.

The film is directed by Kevin Gruetert, who was behind the camera for Saw VI and Saw 3D: The Final Chapter, and also stars Mark Webber, David Andrews, Joelle Carter, Ana de la Reguera, Larisa Oleynik, Chris Ellis, Fran Bennett and Amber Stevens.

On first look, Jessabelle seems to check off all the standard imagery found in a lot of supernatural horror movies these days -- although at least it's not a found footage film. Blumhouse, however, has put out a lot of quality genre movies in the past few years, so we're willing to give Jessabellechance too.

Watch the trailer and sound off below. Jessabelle will haunt your local cineplex on August 29.
