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. "some of the most authentic mountain music since "O' Brother, Where Art Thou." As Quoted by the IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association Director) Written by Shane Marr
