341. “…I thought you were scared to death!”

The episode:The Thing That Couldn’t Die,” ep. 805

The riff: Asked quizzically by Mike after one of the characters says “…Jessica?” in a questioning manner.

The explanation:Let’s Scare Jessica to Death” was the title of a 1971 low-budget psychological horror film. The movie starred Zohra Lampert as a woman recently released from a mental institution who moves into a creepy farmhouse. She begins to see nightmarish visions, and the plot revolves around whether they are real or if she is slowly losing her mind. It had both VHS and DVD releases.

Novelty factor: I’m a connoisseur of old horror movies, but this is one I’d never heard before. Love the grindhouse-style title, though.
