An American Haunting

An American Haunting Movie Poster

Between the years 1818-1820, the Bell Family of Red River, Tennessee was visited by an unknown, unseen presence that terrorized the family. To date, it is the only recorded case in American history where a spirit or entity has caused the death of a human being.

The haunting started with strange noises around the farm and the mysterious appearance of a black wolf with piercing yellow eyes. It soon escalated into violent physical contact with family members. The Bell's youngest daughter was singled out in particular.

The Bells searched for rational explanations and ways to rid their house of this entity, but to no avail.

The entity would speak to the family in multiple voices that sounded like the wind -- promising that one day it would kill.

Based on true events documented by the State of Tennessee, and the subject of over 20 books.
