Let’s Scare Julie was filmed in one uninterrupted, continuous take; once the camera started rolling, it never stopped until the end. There were no cuts, alternate takes or additional footage used during filming. These events happened in real time.
On this fateful evening, Emma, 17, who recently moved in with her cousin Taylor, 18, after her father’s untimely death becomes the victim of a prank perpetrated by Taylor’s group of friends.
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, the clock is ticking for Emma to figure it out.
This goosebump story is the first foray for teenagers to be exposed to the horror genre. With underlying themes of bullying and teen pressure, we watch the real-life struggles young women are exposed to and how making the wrong choices can end with horrific results.
