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

Loved the film
9 July 2008 | by mtnkathy89See all my reviews

I never leave comments but..

I just wanted to say I loved this film, it was as true to the legend as you could get being based on the 1890's Bell Witch Red Book by Martin Van Buren Ingram, the only difference is in the Red Book John Bells Boys discover some bones while farming and in the movie the boys discover bones in the cave, if you want to know more about the Bell With I suggest you read it and you can find it online.

If you are just looking for a good old fashioned ghost story then check out this film.
