Based on true events that took place in Tennessee during the 1800s, An American Haunting tells the story of the only documented case in U.S. history (validated by the State of Tennessee) in which a spirit caused a person's death. With over 20 books written on the subject, and a town that still lives in fear of the spirits' return, the story is terrifying.

Basing itself on the only documented case in US history of a spirit causing someone's death, An American Haunting basically markets itself. Don't get too wrapped up in the historicity of this movie, though, as director Courtney Solomon plays fast and loose with the true story of the Bell Witch. The "based on true events" moniker is in fact quite disingenuous, as this movie is really based on Brent Monahan's purely fictional novel The Bell Witch: An American Haunting.Read more ›
this movie doesn't scare me, I guess cos especially ive seen it b4. also the picture can get irritating the way they move around the camera. it get annoying.
I regret purchased this dvd. its kinda okay for people who haven't seen it b4 though.
Im gonna pass this dvd over to someone, cant bring myself to watch it again.
no problem with delivery.
This film has all the required ingredients, a spooky atmosphere, a believable community and family and I like the way it doesn't dawdle, it's not long before things start to happen, too many films pad-out the length (The Sixth Sense springs to mind) and it ends up watering down the effect.
At just under 90 minutes this film is in no danger of that, but it doesn't feel rushed or insubstantial as a result, very well paced and edited, aided by quality of acting which makes the characters feel very familiar and real to us.
I would put it in my top 5 of spooky films, I watched it twice in the one day and for most of the first viewing had a fixed look of dread on my face. ;)
Meanwhile, Bell's daughter Betsy is acting strange and invisible entities are haunting the Bell residence as doors open and close by themselves, people are pushed and dragged around, and of course the entity likes to remove the covers from a sleeping teenage girl and pin her to the mattress (no nudity in unrated version). Clearly these people have too much lead in their cooking utensils. The local schoolmaster plays the skeptic. This type of stuff goes on ad nauseum to the point that John Bell goes over to the witch's house. He gives her a gun and points it at his head, and asks her to take his life to remove the curse. The witch claims she didn't put any curse on John Bell, that he did it himself. At this point all the clues dropped during the story should be adding up.
Neither Sutherland nor Spacek will be remembered for their performance in this movie.

Based loosely on real life events this is a creepy poltergeist movie. There are some genuinely eerie moments and some disturbing scenes.Published 8 months ago by Aspie girl.
