In the early 1800s, A family is torn apart after attracting the demonic attention of the Bell Witch. The only hope of escaping torment is death...and this ancient spirit is more than happy to help. Every bump in the night and walk through the woods builds suspense in this old fashioned ghost story based on the historically documented 19th century Bell Witch haunting in Adams, Tennessee. Betsy Palmer (Friday the 13th) gives voice to the Bell Witch in one of her best vocal performances ever. BELL WITCH: The Movie closely follows the original accounts of this legendary paranormal event, creating a motion picture that rings true for Bell Witch fans while the driving Bluegrass and Americana soundtrack offers some of the most authentic mountain music since "O' Brother, Where Art Thou." Written by Shane Marr

This should be CRIMINAL
5 June 2008 | by (.: Fiendish Writings in the Dark :.) – See all my reviews

Despite some clever innovations (in marketing, not for the film making for SURE) this was putrid! The "story" of the Bell(e) Witch is well known in the Smoky Mountain area, but somehow much of the "facts" stated in this movie are merely legend at this time. This was presented in such a way as to villainize a woman who has never been proved to have conjured, called, or evolved into the entity found within this cave.

You would be hard put to find anyone locally who would dispute that there is, indeed, SOMEthing in that cave, but I am highly disbelieving of the story as it was herein told.

Sorry, Cinemarr, but this was about the lowest-classed production on film since Abomination by Brain Dead Productions.

It doesn't rate a rating from...

the Fiend :.
