An American Haunting

The Cincinnati Post on a movie I'll get to see probably after I'm dead and buried and return as a ghost at the current rate:

Before serial killers and psycho killers and killer dolls, movies depended on the quaint notion of the supernatural for chills. "An American Haunting" takes that retro approach and comes up with more scares than many a modern gore fest. "An American Haunting" focuses on a famous, much-written-about case of a supernatural entity - the Bell Witch of Tennessee - and gives it a faithful, flavorful treatment. The subject matter may be historic, but the look and psychology of the film are contemporary enough to please sophisticated moviegoers who are predisposed to believe in forces beyond what can be seen.
