Let’s Scare Jessica to Death - dvd release announced

This is a film I’ve fancied watching for a while and it appears that it is to get a DVD release via Paramount.

The US release date is 29th August 2006, but no sign yet of a UK release date.

The imdb synopsis of the 1971 film reads:

Jessica (Zohra Lampert) has just been released from a mental hospital. Wanting to "start over", she moves into an old New England farmhouse with her husband (Barton Heyman) and a friend (Kevin O'Connor). Before they even arrive Jess starts having strange encounters, and after they find a young transient in their new home (Mariclaire Costello), things start getting rather nasty. Seems this redheaded hippie chick is in fact a vampire, a onetime resident of the house who drowned on her wedding day, and all the old guys in town are her harpies (they all have scarred necks and arms). Or is Jess really having another breakdown? Who knows...
