You know, I actually enjoyed the movie (An American Haunting) more than I enjoyed the book. I simply had too difficult of a time trying to be convinced these were actual papers from the era. That said, I wouldn’t be the slightest bit surprised if there was some truthiness in these ‘revelations’ – pertaining to the Bell Witch. Would correlate with most poltergeist behavior, in any case…

Racist, sexist, and overall a focus of a deplorable time in American history, this wasn’t exactly a fun read. Interesting, chilling, well written – not fun.

A recommended read for paranormal and history fans, however.
