Overview

The wind whispers ominous warnings of death before a malevolent entity arrives to claim the life of a young girl as director Courtney Solomon brings author Brent Monahan's chilling, fact-based story of supernatural murder to the screen in this tale of terror starring Donald Sutherland and Sissy Spacek. The year is 1818 and the Bell family is a quiet clan residing on a remote farm in Red River, TN. A normal, loving family by all accounts, the uneventful lives of the Bell family begin to take a dark turn when strange noises around the farm are followed by the arrival of a black wolf with piercing yellow eyes said to strike unspeakable fear into the very soul of all who encounter it. As the sadistic spirit singles out the youngest daughter of the Bell family for torment and her frightened parents search frantically for a rational explanation to the chilling events unfolding in their once-happy home, an eerie, disembodied voice promises death from beyond the grave. With the struggle rapidly turning violent and the Bells' desperate prayers for mercy going unanswered time and again, the shocking murder that followed would prove the only case in recorded American history where the death of a human being was directly attributed to an attack by an evil entity or spirit.

This movie makes you jump at parts and give you some chills.It has a twisted storyline,but it is still cool.

Donald Sutherland was great in this movie, but overall this movie lacked originality. Good for one viewing, but really doesn't leave you wanting more after that.

An American Haunting is supposedly based on the bell witch but in fact it is a slap in the face to the bell family and the legend, with the MTV quick cut directing and the out of place soundtrack this film is not worth the time to watch it. The only positive for it is the acting.

Excellent story although taken from real life event, it has good drama and a twisted conclusion. Didn't read the entire book but I have seen the movie and I thought it was a great movie to watch. I loved the setting and characters on the movie. I would recommend this book.
