Let's Scare Jessica To Death (Hancock, 1971)

"Something is after Jessica. Something very cold, very wet... and very dead..."

That John D. Hancock's Let's Scare Jessica To Death isn't more commonly known and discussed is a real shame. I can't believe a film this finely tuned has escaped the general consciousness for so long. Perhaps it's simply too refined, too subtle a creature (the film certainly belies its sensationalist title) to appeal to more than just a niche audience, but whatever the case may be, do yourself a favor and discover this film now.
