Haunting with a Twist

An American Haunting begins as a typical haunting thriller with all the mystery and intrigue surrounding its loosely based story around true events. But the plot quickly reveals a dark and twisted fate by the movie's end and we are almost fooled into believing that this would be Donald Sutherland's first attempt at a role that did not end like every one of his other films (I tried not to reveal t... read more

Obviously this movie isn't popular just by looking at the ratings but I personally didn't find it too bad. I've watched it more than once, which is saying something.

If you like movies with a bit of a twisted plot, then you may just find it interesting. I was somewhat confused to start with but by the end of the movie it made a lot more sense. It's one of those movies where you nee... read more

To be honest, I wasn’t really expecting much from this flick, especially since it had a rather poor rating on Imdb, but since I always had a weak spot for Donald Sutherland, I thought I might as well give it a try. Eventually, even though I usually don’t care much about the genre (in my opinion, ‘The Exorcist’ is in fact one of the most overrated movies ever made), I thought that this movi... read more

"OCTOBER 25 Extra: I watch this movie for its entertainment value. When comparing it with the "true legend," it becomes very boring and confusing, so I treat it like a standalone story, especially since there is no evidence that Mr. Bell molested any of his children or that he was murdered at the hand of his daughter and wife. It's not a scary as some of the other possession and ghostly abuse stories out there, but it's intriguing. I am a little disturbed by Betsy's overt interest in her teacher,"
