An American Haunting 2006

Based on "The Bell Witch: An American Haunting" by Brent Monahan. Known throughout Tennessee as "Old Kate," the Bell Witch took up residence with John Bell's family in 1818. It was a cruel and noisy spirit, given to rapping and gnawing sounds before it found its voices. With these voices and its supernatural acts, the Bell Witch tormented the Bell family.

An American Haunting Movie Review by Max (5/6/2006)

"The Bell Witch" haunting is factually, the only case in which a death has been declared to have been caused by a spirit. There are plenty of terrible movies about ghosts, filled with blood, gore, and other really clichéd acoustics that I personally am getting annoyed of seeing. Interestingly, An American Haunting uses no...
