An American Haunting
An American Haunting is based on the world's only
documented account of ghost killing a person in the early 19th century
of the town of Red River Tennessee in the United States. With over 20
books written on this mystery, this current incarnation of the story
gives viewers the most reasonable explanation behind the murder with the
tale revolving around the Bell family whose family is visited by an
unseen spirit after a land settlement dispute with a neighbour.
With the daughter and father of the Bell family being
targeted by the spirit, the Bell Family soon turn to others in the
village to assist them bring order to their disturbed lives with
devastating consequences. Director Courtney Solomon does a wonderful job
at bringing the story into the 20th century with a unique twist at the
end of the movie.
Director Courtney Solomon also brings together a
first class ensemble of actors led by the talented Donald Sutherland and
Rachel Hurd-Wood in this psychological horror that has the viewer
question the menace behind the story from start to finish.
The video quality of An American Haunting
is presented in glorious 16:9 widescreen with Dolby Digital 5.1 for that
true cinematic experience. Needless to say, watch the movie in the dark
with the sound turned up. Highly Recommended!
