Old Mrs.Jenkins




Reminiscent of the campy horror films from the 80s, Old Mrs. Jenkins tells the story of what happens to a couple after a thunderstorm leaves them in the dark. With only candles, a broken flashlight and a fireplace to light the night, together they learn that some scary stories should never be retold.

10.10.18 Old Mrs.Jenkins has received another great reiew! This one is from Horror Society, click here to read the full interview, or check out some highlights below:

"Old Mrs. Jenkins is an independent production, and that’s the type of thing we love to champion here at HorrorSociety. What this mini-movie lacks in overall value, it makes up for in heart. It doesn’t take itself too seriously, and it actually brought me back to a better time in horror, somewhere between the release of Sleepaway Camp and Are You Afraid of The Dark.” This was mostly due to the fun and campy acting, primarily from the lead actress Taryn Hough. The way she brought her character to life in terms of personality and wit closely matches the type of player you’d find in a more classic title. Kind of comical, kind of dry humor mixed with camp. Taryn and Bill Rogers played off each other well, but my attention was always on Taryn. And despite Old Mrs. Jenkins being small budget, it’s camera quality is crystal clear."

10.7.18 Old Mrs.Jenkins has received their first review, and it's AMAZING! The review came from The Independent Critic, by the always thoughtful, Richard Propes. Click here to read the full review, highlights are below:

"both Hough and Norman have cut their teeth in the low-budget indie horror scene and they clearly understand how to make budget constraints work to their advantage. Old Mrs. Jenkins is a little bit chilling, a whole lotta thrilling, more than a little funny, and a plain ole' good time."

"Hough has this natural look about her that says "I could be normal, but I'm probably not." It works perfectly here as the slightly twitchy, amusing bewildered wife of Bill Rogers, whose face you can practically picture peering out over a fog-immersed campfire telling tall tales against the moonlight."

"Then, there's Old Mrs. Jenkins herself, played with devilish delight by Jaclyn Carmichael, who wears this grin on her face that says she might be baking you cookies or she might've just eaten your baby."

9.15.18 We are so excited to announce that the film is finished! We have already started submitting to festivals, check back often for updates.
