Possession knows no bounds in this supernatural thriller starring Donald Sutherland and Sissy Spacek. An American Haunting is a harrowing account of the true events of the Bell Witch of Tennessee, the only case of its kind in US History where a spirit or entity caused the death of a man.

With over thirty-five books written on the subject, and a town that continues to live in fear of the return of the unseen spirit, the story is simply terrifying.

It would not be until years later that we would be taken back to the terrible night the spirit was born, to establish the horrific truth about its nature and origin.

although a little boring , an american haunting is a good film, but i wouldint buy it as it is a watch-once movie . some parts are hard to figure out but i liked the twist at the end , even if it was weird ...

 Not so Frightening after all.

This was mildly confusing but you understand it in the end, lots of spine-chilling music and some jumps which failed to impress, I think I was more worked up about the film to begin with and then got a bit bored with it all, also sometimes through the film the music overpowers the speaking and that is very annoying. Sissy Spacek was brilliant as per usual and Donald Sutherland. Watch it and see for yourself.

 Based on a true story...only just...

The film is based on the haunting of the Bell Witch in Adams, Tennesse - where a poltergeist haunting manifested and haunted the Bell family, eventually leading to the death of a member of the household.

The last point is one of the only facts that they actually included, bar the names of the family.

I know the real case rather well and was really excited to see a screen version of those events. Bitterly disappointed and spent most of the film asking myself what was going on.

Don't expect too much from the special features, the gag reel only contains two blunders...
