Plot / Synopsis
Based on true events validated by the State of Tennessee of the only case in US History where a spirit or entity caused the death of a man. With over 20 books written on the subject, and a town that still lives in fear of the return of the unseen spirit, the story of "An American Haunting" is terrifying. Between the years 1818-1820, the Bell Family of Red River, Tennessee was visited by an unknown presence which haunted the family and eventually ended up causing the death of one its members. Starting with small sounds around the farm, and the siting of a a strange BLACK WOLF with piercing yellow eyes, the sounds escalated into full brutal contact with the certain family members, causing psychological and phsycial torment. The attacks grew in strength, with the spirit slapping, pulling, dragging, and beating the Bell's youngest daughter. The Bell's searched for rationale explanations and ways to rid their house of this entity, but to no avail, as the spirit began to communicate with them through sounds, and eventually a multiple voices which sounded like the wind. The cause of it's actions could always be felt, but no being could being seen, and no explanation found, only the promise that one day, it would kill one of the family members. Fearing that the haunting was caused by a local woman, branded a witch, who had put a curse upon the family as a result of a land dispute, the Bell's tried desperately to find ways of getting rid of the woman's curse, yet the attacks and disturbances only escalated. It was not until, a manuscript of the local schoolteacher ,who lived on the property during the disturbance, was found in 1998 that the horrifying and shocking answer to what casued this haunting would finally be unveiled.
