Producer Jason Blum has a lot of experience in the scaring business. With Paranormal Activity, The Purge and Insidious under his belt, he might as well be Sully from Monster's Inc.

His new horror Jessabelle, though, has been something of a mystery up until now. All we really know about the picture is that it used to be titled Ghosts, has been bumped from a January release to August 29, and a little bit of plot:

After losing her fiancé in a horrific accident, Jessabelle is forced to recuperate at her father’s ruined Louisiana mansion, where she discovers a strange gift from her long-dead mother, and a terrifying presence determined to destroy her.

Beyond Blum's previous work, though, there wasn't really a whole lot to get excited about. Until now.

Yahoo! Movies have released the first official photo for the film - and it's a doozy.

Check it out below:

Which is sufficiently creepy to keep us going at least part of the way to August.

What do you guys think? Will Jessabelle be as scary as the new picture makes it seem? Let me know below!


Will Jessabelle be a classic scarefest?
